    This is a great store in LA on Beverly, near Martel.....ReMix Vintage Shoes.....they sell deadstock vintage shoes as well as vintage repros

    Good place for black/white or brown/white spectators, as well as 50s repro loafers with crepe soles and bucks.

    This is my gf's favorite place to get shoes (other than Lulu Guinness) and probably owns all of the 40s wedges as well as their ballet flats which arent available anymore.

    The 2 guys that run the store are really cool (Phil and Paul) as well.

    Worth a look if you want reasonably well made shoes at a good price, esp the spectators.

    They make their own shoes, "Remix" brand. They are all based on real vintage shoes in their collection that they have copied. The spectators are nicely constructed with welted soles. There were some *really* nice 1950s shoes (called "Jubilees" that are sought after by the 50s rocknroll crowd) that never got made but I saw the prototype a few years ago, which is a shame because the samples were never quite right (but still pretty nice) so they put the project on hold.

    Those spectators look pretty nice, but what's the quality? I'm a bit leary at only US$148.

    At their pricepoint, I think their shoes are much better than most other $150 full retail shoe. They use welted construction on the soles, not glued, the wingtips have better leather than the loafers. If I remember correctly, it has a pebble-grain texture to its leather. I'm actually driving by them today so ima drop in and re-check them out since I was thinking of getting a pair as I got rid of all my spectators years ago and now I'm kinda feeling like owning a pair again.
