I looked at those, great catch.e-thrifted these vintage Leeds last night for a song ($40 shipped). these are on, I believe, a now defunct last -- the old 8 last, I guess, which has a soft squarish toe. anyway, planning to dye these when they get here since I have a very similar pair of grain nettletons that are essentially new.
anyone have any interesting suggestions for what to do with them? Golden harvesting is an option (is this verb usage of GH appropriate? feels a bit like in the Olympics when the announcers talk about "meddling", which invariably bugs the crap out of me...)
Anyway, other good ideas? Some type of fade? Not sure how it would look on such a plain shoe.

Thank you Sir! I’m suffering from that same affliction. I passed on them because I just grabbed a pair of Sheltons that were unusually inexpensive and in great shape. I’m trying not to fall down this rabbit hole. Lbvs!Thanks, I really had no reason to buy them, honestly. Boredom? haha. If they land and don't fit happy to let you know before I mess with them. They were dirt cheap and minimally worn.
I think that I was looking at those sheltons myself but I keep buying saddles, not wearing them, and reselling so took a pass. Would like to try a pair of the Alden derby saddles one of these days, which I think would work better for me. Enjoy those sheltons!
I will try! Alden’s NST saddles are definitely on my list. I’m trying to hold out for a pair in an “exotic” shell cordovan. Fingers crossed.

Dang... add these to the I-should've-grabbed-these annals. I saw them first thing this morn, asked the seller if they'd take an offer, the seller wrote back, but by the time I saw the message they were gone. And it was all to save a few bucks...
