Hi guys:Not necessarily that bulky. It's a while ago but I had my service boots built unstructured and, as far as service boots go, they were pretty sleek. Very similar to Viberg 2030. I sold them years ago due to mis-sizing. They also used to have some special-ish leather options. Nothing at all like some other makers but the leather on my pair was very nice.
From what I heard they started outsourcing their boots maybe about two years ago. And at this point, that company is about to go through some things so all the above is completely academic and irrelevant, lol.
I tend to follow the rule of above all else, do no harm with shoes this old. If something goes bad, you’re not likely to get another pair. I would hit them gently with the suede eraser and then use a buck bag to restore some whiteness. I wouldn’t dye them.Suede experts needed here! I'm still pondering how to deal with this shoe. Leave it alone and accept that spot on toe or keep going? I got a lot of that shoe-white stuff off it- cleaned twice with omni'nettoyant. I've brushed and sprayed with renovateur. Found the spot on left shoe after cleaning. I don't have an eraser which is on the way and I ordered some ivory dye from Tarrago.
The catalog lists these as white on black but I dont think white is coming back. But I like the ivory color actually. What would you do or not do? I dont want to totally screw this shoe up. Thanks for your input.View attachment 1564229View attachment 1564230View attachment 1564231

I like Cordwainer Wrights but I've only handled one pair... Those outsoles are original and seem ok to me except for what looks like a tiny puncture on one of them. The insoles look concerning and seem like a lot of wear given how the outsoles look. Personally, I'd pass on this pair but I try to avoid shoes that might need an immediate investment. Nice shoes though.These Cordwainer Wright LWBs caught my eye. They seem to have a very deep burnt orange color and some interesting patina going on, but I'm wondering how much of that is dark polish that has been caked on.
They've got replacement top lifts, the soles are suspect, and the footbed looks like it could have some heavy wrinkling and possibly deep foot impressions... so possibly in need of a full recraft which means $$$.
But that color!
Thoughts anyone? I know Cordwainer Wright was ET Wright's top tier brand, but overall how is the quality compared to vintage Florsheims?

“Hand crafted world of AE” indicates 1980s. The Colonial golf shoe from that era sorta looks close and had a model number a little closer: 0207. However, that’s still not the same and these aren’t golf shoes.
