Thanks @ Sri and Toni H. for the shoe love. They are Cordwainer shoes, deadstock from some time long ago. I like them for their unusual squared off/chiseled last. Reminds me of a Cleverley a bit. As for Sterling - I have no beef with him. A while ago we jarred a bit and then, I thought, we came to a mutual agreement to not take silly pot-shots at one another. Apparently, I was mistaken.
