Here’s a pretty uncommon pair. They are vintage Lloyd. It is a German company that, I believe, had a storefront in NYC.

Not Lloyd & Haig?
Right. Not Lloyd and Haig. Lloyd in Germany still has the same logo that these have. I do have a pair of Lloyd & Haig and they are very different.

How about more Saddle Shoes? And a MYSTERY!

I don’t know who made these. There are no visible markings. The only thing I can sort of read is the size and that isn’t super clear. Nice Quality. Vibram sole. No other clues as far as I can tell.

Also, here’s a question I am surprised has never come up. Is there something like a conditioner I should put on the edge of a rubber sole? When I condition regular shoes I will condition the edge and even the welt. If it’s an old dry pair, I often condition the whole leather sole.

I have a very similar pair, branded LLBean.

Very nice; I have a pair in black.
Oh, then I have a question! I was thinking about a pair of black Craddock-Terry shoes. I couldn't tell from eBay photos: are they standard black leather, or that shiny patent leather stuff?

No. Rubber doesn't require any conditioning as it is not hide.

You can use Heel and Edge polish from Fieblings to dye it a darker black, though. Just don't get the brown. The brown looks like baby diarrhea.

I'll double check when I get home, but I believe mine are corrected grain.
