While I thoroughly approve of your Golden Harvests, I must strongly protest this business with sandals. Counselor, how could you show up for court in sandals? I’m very disappointed.

Well, at least you probably weren’t late, what with your atomic clock synchronized super-watch.

I'm totally bragging. But it's the truth. I'm usually the best dressed in court.

Even with robes, when everyone should look the same, my shoe game always gives me the advantage on the sartorial front.

Now whether looking sharp has ever won the day for one of my clients - I'll say I doubt it.

I wear nice stuff because I want to, and like to. It's never for anyone else.

Found these today at an estate sale.

Never seen this Alden-Pedic label before but seems pretty self explanatory. Model 472 … classy. the way these are marked up/spotted makes me think it might be dirty old shell but definitely seeings some creasing too.

The other two pairs don’t excite me as much but were too cool not to buy. Jarman friendly and some sweet ET wright/ Boyce & Lewis blue suedes.

Bought for special occasions that never arrived. :(

I hope you're a 12AA!

I’ll I can say is an attorney wearing “dress sneakers”, or pilgrim shoes, is a cause for concern (IMHO).

Forget the Alden’s, I want those Jarman’s cap-toes in the middle.

I’m the best dressed when I do a deposition. And I’m a physical therapist

Wait a minute… “price punishment”?!?! We are pricing punishments around here now? Maybe we can relax the rules?
Ok. It’s a typo. Blame my iphun. See what I mean?

If those were my size, I’d smash that BIN button harder than Mike Tyson hitting Jake Paul in a roid rage.

I’m not a big PTB person, but those speak to me. And yes, it’s all about that color. I wish those were in my size.

I was not a big PTB person, but they grew on me over time. This resulted in more than a few pairs, including this black shell pair that arrived a few days ago. Not vintage, but a classic style.

Those are technically "my size," but Florsheims of that era tend to be a full size big on me.

My budget appreciates this.

And speaking on this exact topic...

Today I'm starting to restore these 1972 Florsheim Varsitys.

I wear a 9.5EEE, and these Florsheim 8.5EEEs are a perfect fit.
