    FS Allen Edmonds Broadstreet Spectators 10D

    As to sizing, they would be the same as J&M. I've had both and noticed no difference. I believe that you can see that the heel wear is very slight, and would not affect the wearer. If you were very concerned you could have the heel caps replaced. These shoes have not been worn enough to affect...

    Question about your shoes?

    The only 1.5" heels that I'm aware of are latin dance shoes or western boots. Modern latin dance shoes as well as vintage may have 1.5" heels. There may have been short lived fads, but I know nothing about them.

    1920s suits

    I'd wear tennis shoes if we could get shoes similar to those.

    What are you wearing today??

    You had said that you'd be in Chile, so the photo must be in Viña. Have a glass of wine for me.
