    Practioners or the art of reviving shoes...

    Two questions -
    1) Florsheim Imperials - not sure what era, the heels have nails and say "florsheim shoe company" it also looks like they have been polished by the wrong color? Not sure what I would do to get them back if anything can be done.

    Are they salvageable?

    2) Florsheim SOMETHINGS- Have no idea what kind / quality they are. Although CORDOVAN colored they are leather i believe. The soles though, they have no stitching on them (see below) - does that mean once they're worn, it's over? Are these chukka monkstraps essentially? How are they worn?
