These are the Nordstrom brand 1901. Very nice shoe for the money, very comfortable and they seem pretty well constructed. I bought them as beaters to wear to work ( I work in restaurants) but they are just a tiny bit too small for me. They have only been worn 10-15 times, but have gotten some spills from me wearing them at work. They may be able to be cleaned up, and other than the spots, they are in very good shape. The soles have almost no wear. These are no Alden's or what have you, but they are good looking and at a pretty unbeatable price. If you need a nice pair of beater saddle shoes, these are for you. They fit true to size, if you usually wear a 9 dress shoe they should fit you. I am typically a 9-9.5. Purchased new for $100 $35 includes shipping!! Here's a link to the ones for sale now at Nordstrom. It doesn't look like they make this colorway anymore though.
