Question:
Who is the American maker of these?
That “diamond” symbol in the line of text looks very familiar — I just can’t place it.

Does this include any information on the last, etc.?

$5 on eBay. According to this I am a 12E, which explains why some 12D shoes fit me and some don't. Property of Charles Chester Shoe Co. Brockton, Mass.

Here is an advert for Sundial from 1947. They were around until the 60's at least. You may need to zoom to read it.

Butter? Tallow? Wouldn't things get rancid?

Many shun the zippered boots. Is it because they look outdated? It would seem highly convenient.

This seems like a cool 70s Florsheim zippered boot design.

Yay or Nay?

I think it’s a matter of personal style. Only you know whether they work for you and your fashion sensibility.

Anybody looking for a pair of 93603 in 11.5D?

They are great looking tan/medium brown scotch grain Plain Toe Blucher. They are reliably dated to 1968. Not NOS, but very nice!

They are too long and wide for me. Looking to trade but will sell for the right price. I will post later on the BST thread if no responses here or message me.

My employer is moving our whole Team to a new office building. So, I had to go and pack up my personal stuff before the movers get there. I’m guessing I was the only person there with six pairs of shoes under my desk and in my file cabinet.

I had almost forgotten about this pair that I bought from a forum member.
