Pics of Boots and Shoes That We Still Wear, But with Actual Wear and Tear ...

We all post pics of new purchases, but I want to see what some better quality shoes or boots look like after actually wearing at least a few dozen times or many years. The longer the better.

... and not just freshly rejuvenated or oiled/polished pics. I want to see them all from neglected daily drivers to old but well cared for dress shoes that we still wear.


For example these are fairly new.... worn only a few dozen times, but repeatedly worn all day and walked long distances in them, and have not "maintained" them with any treatments or shoe trees.

Well, I wore these yesterday. Vintage Florsheim cordovan longwing bluchers. They were made in 1980 (purchased used) and still going strong. I do take care of my shoes with trees, brushing, and conditioners, so these would be "old but well cared for dress shoes".
