    I was thinking about this just now. The shoes that have captured the SF community's imagination over the years.

    The first one that popped into my head was the Edward Green Dover.

    Leffot calls it EG's "signature shoe."

    Here's Another Leffot post favoring the Dover over Alden Norwegian Split Toe.

    The Dover is on aportnoy's top 5 list.

    Alden Leydon Last flex welt chukka (tons of threads on this one)

    What else is a part of this category?

    Criteria: Welted only. Nothing bespoke.These aren't necessarily "staple" shoes.

    Hasn't gotten as much attention recently, but up until a year or two ago, THE SF shoe was the EG / RLPL Mackay / Asquith in Dark Oak 888 last

    Best image I could quickly find -there are many more out there - the top right of this pic.

    The FooShoe is the obvious first. Also on the list, C&J Tetbury, Quoddy/Rancourt mocs, and Sator's SF special from RM Williams.

    I agree w/ pretty much all of the ones mentioned. Don't personally own any of the ones mentioned so far.

    Cool thread. I haven't been here long enough to comment on what might qualify as a SF classic, but I'm keen to see what others think. Very nice stuff so far.

    Is that the Dover and the Vass Austerity brogue in the top row (middle two)?

    What's that monk in the bottom row? Reminds me of the John Lobb Jermyn,

    Jermyn might be John Lobb's "signature shoe." Especially in "Museum Calf"

    So far I have three of the shoes that have made the thread (and returned a pair like the one I posted above).

    Not my cup of tea, but there's a large contingent here that goes apeshit for Corthay Arca
