    I knew a man who worked at At The Front, and came to work in my town. I got to know him pretty well, and anything I couldn't source, or couldn't have made for me in time to fill a contract, I'd get from At The Front, because they did everything right, even though we were competing somewhat. They did more re-enactor stuff, I did close to 100% period, for collectors and sets. He didn't work there anymore when I met him, but turned me on to their products for what its worth.

    Awe... can't they do them in the right color? In black they are just security guard shoes. I want Army Aircorp pilot shoes.

    I bring you the Decatur plain toe from Johnston and Murphy. There may not be enough holes for the long laces we desire... and yes there is something to that look of rows of holes, but this shoe will have to do. What it has against it it makes up for in comfort.

    And the last is pretty darn good with that 'lots of toe room' design.

    Oh... and if you are a swing dancer, they are great for doing heel slides. Ultimately a good shoe for walking and dancing!

    Again... biggest gripe is that they're black and not russet. At least they have 6 eylets on either side.

    Those look a lot like the current brown shoes we wear in Naval Aviation. They are made by Bates and half the price of the ones shown by Alden.
