    ...and now for something extremely rare: NOS Edwin Clapp full wing derby with single leather soles and nylon heels. Mid-brown reddish grain leather with leather lining in same shade. Note the very contoured heelcups and aggressively curving full wing. I do love this pair.

    Wow, that's a good looking shoe with a great overall balance of color, texture of the leather, and beefiness of the overall shoe. What year/decade are these from?
