    This is a pair of handmade shoes from Havana in pre-Castro Cuba. They have a stamp--almost like a tax stamp--on the insole. Other than that, there are no markings. They look kind of English to me. Is anyone familiar with 50s handmade Cuban shoes?

    These are not vintage but have that "vintage" look. They are a pair of Rockport True-walks that I baught in dark tan and then dyed them to get that two tone spectator look. Supper confy, however my wife thinks I'm crazy for buying a pair of nice shoes knowing I'm going to change the color as soon as I get home. In my defense I say "But Honey, they don't make them way I have to have them". Makes her more concerned about my sanity .

    Slightly off-topic, but what's interesting to me is that the heels on older dress shoes are either all-rubber or all-leather. Is the combination heel a more recent invention? When did it start to appear?

    Here's one from the 1930s with a combination heel--albeit a custom one.
