Nothing new here, you've seen these French Shriners before, but I was wondering: is this what you call a Moc Toe?

I’m not sure how superstition works or how it starts. Repetitive coincidences? Every time I found a vintage my size, I feel a little tingling inside. Coincidence? All of them are my lucky shoes.
Presenting late 50s JC Penney Towncraft U-wing with part of its box I think the descendants of original owner didn’t have enough space for the box, but still want to keep some information about the shoes for resale. The price on the cutouts reads $10.95. It’s size 10.5 and might be involved in an international trade

That's interesting. I *would* like to know what the proper term is for those French Shriners.You may see that style referred to as a moc toe in vintage ads. Not sure what the more correct term would be, but when you say "moc toe" most people will think Red Wing.
Keep them hydrated and avoid storing in a hot attic and they will likely outlive you.Had to go into the office on Friday for a big meeting, so figured I'd wear some comfy shoes. This is the old beat up pair of 93606s that were belching orange midsole cork dust when I got them, so I had them resoled with JR soles.
The cordovan is still really supple, but the rewelting tightened up the originally mushy fit and they are one of my most comfortable pairs now. I just hope the uppers hold up over time.
