    I have a pair of navy unlined penny's from Alden, and I am tempted to pick these ones up now. Too bad I am taking a break from shoes :(

    Some Vintage Boots. Very nice closed channel sole, I think. 1930's.

    The Kangaroo Kraze was in full swing during the 30's. I recently got a 1936 Weyenberg catalog, and nearly half of their top-line models were offered in Kangaroo as well as Calf.

    I don't understand why Kangaroo has fallen out of favor with modern shoemakers for the most part. It's VERY lightweight & just refuses to dry out & crack.

    Anyway...

    These are lovely. Enough to make me forget my hatred of tassles.

    I think it's the wonderful color and visible striation of the soles in combination with the color of the suede that separates these from being 'just another blue loafer'.

    And I thought I was the only one here who loathed tassles.

    High Five.

    Ishi, my frien', what I tried to ask was about your sources. I do my share of 'Baying, but most times the rare vintage pieces are just not there -- perhaps because of you. Do you trift, 'Bay or shop at vintage stores?

    I hate them with a PASSION! Haven't owned a tassle shoe in at least 25 years.

    Now I'm not one of those who thinks just because I don't like something someone else shouldn't wear it. Nor am I unable to appreciate a fine pair of shoes with tassles on them. Cravate recently had some made that were just wonderful.

    But I'm not gonna wear 'em!

    I WON'T I WON'T I WON'T :slapfight:

    Not every shoemaker...I like it a lot. I've been thinking about a nice bone and cognac spectator for a while. That's said, it is not easy to find a source for really good 'roo.

    I wonder how human skin would work tanned? You think I could donate my body to Horween? Just think the 1000 mile Ed Gein boot.
