Hey, I have absolutely no problem with anyone that's not into Vintage Shoes. It's not my job to "convince"... hell, it's not a job at all. This is what I do for fun, being a Dad of 3 young ones, Vintage shoes keeps me at home. I just like to share what's out there. HOWEVER, it seems that there is some kind off a misconception about what "Vintage Styling" really means. Of course I post a LOT of "Gunboat" style shoes. Triple soles, wide hand-welts, crazy exotic leathers. That's a PART of Vintage Shoes, but by no means the whole Kaboodle (or even the majority of it). There are PLENTY of Vintage Shoes that are more conservative & sleeker styles. Many of which are still available today... by the same makers that are highlighted on this thread so often. 1940's Stan West Spades 1940's Spectators A more sleek model... 1930's Foot Joy Custom Made Spectators. Honestly, these are made so nicely it's pretty incredible AND, the nicest shoes I have ever handled. I'm by no means the expert of all the top brands. HOWEVER, I've owned and handled many pairs of EG, John Lobb (UK, not Paris), C&J handgrades, most top Italian makers (except Lattanzi), and many more (still want some Vass and a pair of Over-The Top G&G). Still, these are just as nice as anything i've ever seen. 1930's Florsheim Custom Made Captoe Spades 1964 Impala????? I think not. Maybe Aston Martin.
