As promised one of two pair of MiUSA Johnston Murphy Cap Toe.

NO corrected grain here.

This first pair are Aristocraft — the top of the line real quality made in USA with quality materials.

These are a very good looking brown. They have a little red tint to them. Not as much as the pictures.
You can tell these are not CG as they have patina and leather variations. The inside heel cup on the right shows darker patina. I took a picture specifically. These are very nice shoes! If they were my size, I would be thrilled to keep them.

Light wear throughout. Very light wear on sole. I did not try to “polish out” the color variations because I like it.

Classic style in a much more versatile color! Size 12D.

Price $70 INCLUDING shipping OBO

I have two pair I listed before without luck. I’ll try again and then they go To eBay.

These are NEW OLD STOCK Florsheim Varsity 30811. Size 9.5D

The date code indicates these are from 1982.

There was a pair just like these that sold on eBay from a forum member. They were $200.

I’ll sell these for $90 Including shipping. It’s getting harder and harder to find NOS.

The second pair I listed previously is a VERY special pair of super minty Alden Shell Cordovan Saddle Shoes. They are 11D on the Barrie last (which is much too wide for me).

when I bought them the seller said they had been worn once. I believe it. They are as close to new as a slightly used pair can be.

I tried them on once and realized they were far too wide.

I got a great deal on these when I paid $350. I will sell these for $300 plus shipping.

I have a collection of shoes to sell. 21 Pair!

Some of these were my shoes. Most of them I bought to resell. A few of these are near mint and some need work.

I’m pricing these to sell as a group. There are two Alden Shell Cordovan, a few really great vintage LWB. This group will make money for a flipper. I’m selling because I’m moving and I am not selling on EBay anymore.

Description and sizes below:

I have a very nice pair of 93603. Tan/medium brown scotch grain PTB. They are from 1978 I think. (code LI and the v cleat is inset).

Uppers look great with very minimal signs of wear. Insole has typical dark stains from the glue. Outsole nice And thick. Great shoes. I love the pattern of the grain. They are too long and wide for me, but I like them so much, it has taken a long time for me to let them go.

I’m mostly interested in trading. These are desirable and not that easy to find.

I’m looking for vintage Florsheim or Alden or really nice AE. Or other quality brands if they are Chukkas or other nice boots for cold weather. I don’t need snow boots.

I wear 10.5-11. Usually anywhere from 10.5C or 10.5D up to 11C.

Hi folks,

In Canada, courier regularly to US, take Paypal, EMT for Canadians.

Established heatware, marketplace profile, longtime lurker.

10E / 10.5C is my size if you have a trade.

Experimenting with size, but too small for me regrettably.

$150 USD Shipped CONUS. 200CAD

Stafford LongWingBrogues., what colour ya figure?
