Maiden voyage of these chili Florsheim NSTs. I put a lazy person’s patina on them with dark brown polish.

Seriously, no clue what they are. The sole says "Custom Made" and the insole says "Private Stock."

Really well made though.

I gotta get me some NST in the future.

Here is another maiden voyage for WTW. I decided to just do basic condition and slight polish for weather resistance only.

Florsheim? What kind of leather is that? Just handsome

Did some cleaning and shining on this pair of vintage Apollo. I think it was made around the 1940-50s and was the predecessor of the now Heinrich Dinkelacker shoes company.

Wore a pair of 92604s and used purple as a theme. I always coach local high school students to compete in mock bail/trial competitions. This year's team was mock bail champion in 2022 and today, they advanced to the regional final 4 for mock trial.

I know the Stacy Adams of today are garbage but which of the older ones are any good?
