    These are new to me. I know most of you have seen these before, but I couldn't help posting a couple of pics.

    I'm not sure if the last is going to work out for me, so sadly, they may be for sale soon.

    That last works for me just fine. Please tell me they are an 11.5 US.

    I think these are insanely ugly. Look like something you get at Bostonian. No matter how good looking you claim to be these are likely to ruin your image.

    Apologies to those forum members who enjoy these, but I have to agree. I have a similar pair that were made by AE, but they are better looking and not as offensively garish in color. Ludwig Reiter makes a number of really nice looking shoes in this style but these look much more llike old Sperry topsiders than real shoes.

    No, not NOS, at least not that I am aware of. I'll check for the name of the German store they came from. I love Dinkelacker and will be getting budapesters in calf and in suede from them. Rock solid shoes very nicely finished, cleaner than Vass. I cannot wait to wear these [​IMG]

    Nothing wring with saying you think your AE's are nicer.

    I bought my first Zegna dress shoes on Saturday. Retail price was around 700 USD, at at 50% off I'm not sure I made a good deal. They are not Couture / good year welted, but I like the sleek last and the styling. Who makes the Zegna mainline shoes now, Ferragamo, Campanile?

    Love those. I have a pair of Vass very similar but mine are almost too sleek even on the Peter last - I like that round shape for this style very much.

    A rather extreme last for my tastes but I have to admire the craftsmanship. Excellent shoes.

    Good choice. Not to everone's taste, that's for sure, but still one of the better RTW offerings out there, IMHO.

    unfortunately ed didn'r answer my question, if they are NOS.

    imho; current dinks suck. vass or ludwig reiter is the way to go for a proper "Norweger".

    probably wiedeking closed the money train for dinks.
