    No way, my friend! You've been pulling 'em in the boat rapid fire style. Must be that special lure you use, Fly.

    Yep. Toebox shape is very important -- ie. how much "useable space" there is.

    Cheap! I paid over USD500 for mine NOS years ago which was like AUD700 at the time and they have been worth it. If they had been Ds I suspect they would have been around USD500. But when they were sold new in the 1990s they were USD1000!

    Oh yes. In fact, "Alexander & Oviatt" was the exclusive U.S. importer/seller of McAfee shoes and boots from 1920 to the end of the decade. James Oviatt introduced McAfee footwear to the American market, and "Oviatt's" continued selling McAfee shoes right up to the store's closure in 1967.

    I found these Bostonians in the thrift shop yesterday for $4.99. Made in Italy and in hardly worn condition - all they needed was a good polishing. I like the combination of smooth and pebble grain leather - almost like black-on-black spectators. The pebbble grain leather is very soft and flexible, making them super comfortable for walking.


    BTW - Where would this style fall on the scale of casual to dressy?

    Open lacing (found on Derbys/bluchers) is considered more casual than the closed lacing (found on Oxfords/Balmorals.) That said, the color and styling would place them on the upper end of the dressiness scale.

    2-toning can be done with texture as well as with color, when done well with textures, the results are fantastic.
