Re: the Dexters. They will serve a purpose. Decent looking and good for light rain days. They are comfortable and the leather sole shows very little wear. I could wear them frequently and they will last for years. Nothing special, but also a decent shoe.The Dexter’s are nice looking, but man, they’re all kinds of Dexter-y in the details (like what’s going on with the welt skyyving at the interior waist of the shoe?). Never-the-less, a good rainy day shoe that’s still better than most main-line 150 dollar shoes today.
Now those saddles, however, look like something quite a bit more special. I could be wrong, but I think those are Hanover made Lloyd & Haig (for the old NY store). The welt style, purposely angled fudging/wheeling and stitching details say Hanover to me. Those are terrific examples of old-school saddles; I especially like the brass eyelets.
Thanks! I love all Saddle Shoes especially old school versions!
They might be Hanover. The insole on one shoe shows part of the old Logo. But, it says Lloyd's. I think it could be a store name -- especially because it is only in one shoe. The logo is VERY hard to read and even harder to photograph. But, here is a picture of it and a picture of style number if that helps identify them.
