    I admit to having some very impure thoughts regarding Markie Post back in the 80's.

    Didn't research shit on cleaning... Just hit the Raichles with fine steel wool (lightly), horsehair brush and dry paper towels. Suede is super fluffy now (yeah, I said that). Most marks and blemishes are gone.

    Are these only worth like $80-$100 with a tail wind? Yeah. Do they make my Wolverine 1000 mile boots look like Target crap? Yup!

    I'm gonna rock them with some selvedge around San Francisco and start a new trend, then sell the boots for millions. Lol!

    You never stood a chance. I had that shit in my cart at 5 seconds and pulled the trigger. Sold out in less than 9 seconds. Bots ate them all up!

    I'm a regular in the vintage shoes thread, wanted to share my amazing score from earlier... (And pink tags were 1/3 off today!)

    IMG_20180416_141434255.jpg IMG_20180416_191403674_LL.jpg

    An extremely rare pair of Barrie Ltd. ravello shell shortwings.

    Barrie was a high-end shoe retailer in New Haven near Yale, they shut down in 2004. Most likely made for Barrie by Cheaney - the size is UK 10C, and Cheaney did a lot of Barrie shoes.

    And they're in great shape, hardly any nicks. Just needed conditioning and some brushing. (And more brushing. Shell cordovan always needs more brushing.)

    Model number 666 - surprisingly, the Footwear of the Beast isn't color 4. :)
