How bad was the fit for you to surrender a grail pair like that?
I have a high vamp. The entire front of the shoe was super tight and the v gap was about two inches Wide. They looked and fit terrible. They fit madhat perfectly.

He’s underselling a bit. His relentless pursuit of awesomeness ended up with me having the original bags and box too.

it should be said they’d been worn like once, so that wear is me.
Ay. Those are insane. Can't decide if I'd get much use out of croc shoes after reselling a pair of shark that I couldn't seem to wear....The texture was just a bit too much for me but these J&M crocs are so crazy nice.

AE Strands burnishing update:

I put two applications of light brown on the entire shoe, then alternating layers of Havana and medium brown on the toes, about 2/3 of the way up the medallion. I'm going to keep brushing and buffing to get some small spots with orange peel texture smoothed out, then go for a mirror shine on the toes.

I have those in black, they are solidly built.View attachment 1484150
Mine didn't even complain when I stretched them from 12 to 13.5, using medieval methods.

Well, now I may take this approach with a pair of Sanders & Sanders chukkas that are ever so slightly too short. Couldn’t quite figure out how to elongate them in the toe box.

These are two thick floor protector pads that you put under the legs of heavy furniture.

Wow, looks fantastic, and of a relatively recent make too. Thanks guys 👍
They were a great pair. They sold for $1000 in the 1992 catalog. They were certainly high end shoes at the time.

Finishing off the last of my blue collection this week. These are 1950's Mansfield longwing spectators. Mansfield was a lower level line made by Bostonian. The materials definitely feel cheaper than I'm used to from that era, but still a nice shoe and it's rare to find a longwing ventilated spectator.

What a handsome pair. It seems like the gents of that era didn't have EEE width feet. Too bad.
