    Goodness - those shoes were made by old Mr Cleverley when he was based in Cork Street, between 1958 and 1976 (or thereabouts). Were they made for you? How come you have hardly worn them in the last 35 (or more) years.

    I bought my pair off eBay. They are a bit large for my feet and I've tried to sell them to a collector/enthusiast both on eBay and SF's sales area, but no-one has been interested. I didn't receive shoe trees, but judging by the shoes alone the original lasts were very contoured -- and the suspiciously chiseled toes are beautiful.

    I agree. If you only own 5 pairs of shoes, these should NOT be one of them. If you have over 20, these are a great addition, however.

    agree - but I have to be feeling flamboyant to wear correspondents.

    Maak jij je nu maar druk om je eigen taalvaardigheid in het Nederlands. Behoorlijk pover om je conclusie te trekken aan de hand van een woord. Let in het vervolg op je eigen, alvorens over een ander te bekommeren.
    Really nice :).

    hahaha. Grappig. Kijk, je moet niet zo defensief zijn. Ik geef je alleen maar een raad: let op je taalvaardigheid in het engels. (ja, ik weet het. engels wordt geschreven met een 'E'.) En oh, ik maak mij helemaal geen zorgen om je, kleuter!
