    Quite the nice haul, but I think you should get some more p2 lasted shoes and shift them to me.

    Is there any interest in vintage shoes on this thread? I have a decent sized collection of 1930s-60s shoes. Here are two examples:

    1940s Florsheim. These shoes are outstandingly well made, with very fine stitching. [​IMG]

    1950s Johnston & Murphy Black and White Spectators. They appear to have been worn no more than a handful of times.

    Channeled soles and narrow waists, too. Amazing that it used to be possible to mass produce such a high level of craftsmanship in the US. Definitely a lost art now in the race to the bottom of maximizing corporate efficiencies.

    Lovely shoes.

    Thank you to all. How would you recommend removing the stain? I have no idea what it is.

    Its need to be done professionally but they would use a solvent. I have used it to clean up some of my vintage shoes.

    Could anyone tell me who made this pair of shoes, and what are they called? I thought they're Gravati, but not sure.

    Thanks.
