"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
In response to frequent queries from old clients: "Good deals" on Ebay do exist but they are for the fellow who is prepared to spend ridiculous amounts of time plowing through the, today, 1,981,000, men's shoes being offered (yes, almost 2 million men's shoes at a given time). For the rest of us who value our time and realize that the real bargains have long ago disappeared from Ebay
Unlike a boulevard shoe store with a limited number of models but in every size, the website has hundreds of models, including some of the most obscure and wonderful examples from, what can only be called, "artists" of the past, but in a limited number of sizes.
Ebay Deutschland and Ebay France do not distinguish between un-endangered species such as farmed alligator, lizard grown in captivity, or the plentiful African antelope, and the truly endangered species. These divisions of Ebay prohibit the auctioning of these and any skin that could be construed to be endangered, even when in use in antique objects, as with most of my exotic skin shoes, crafted far before the existence of any such considerations in the world. In the mean time, these wonderful shoes made fr
The Florsheims shown in these pages, both the Imperials and the others, are the products of the 100-plus year old firm, founded by a cobbler's son, Milton Florsheim, in 1892 and, arguably, the most important shoemaker in American history.

This is a subject ruled by more folklore than reason. On the fantasy end of the spectrum are the elaborate rituals of Mme.
There are certainly a few choices of shoe correct for Smoking; I leave my favourite for last. First let me say I personally avoid Patent Leather; I find it too showy and even the best patent soon creases unacceptably and cracks with age. Not to mention that the plastic impregnated leather does not breath well, and so the tendency is for one's feet to perspire......
Rubber soled shoes (but the properly Goodyear Welted variety) have made rather a comeback in recent years and even the leather-sole purist must admit to the practically of either a heavy Commando Sole (the great Itshide sole, for instance, good for all terrain) or the medium profile Danite Sole. Even a thin “Topy” overlay to your leather soled shoes will provide the obvious added protection to wet but also welcomed isolation from cold.....
Es ist schwer vorstellbar, dass viele Gentlemen-Golfer einerseits keine Kosten und Mühen scheuen die beste und neueste Ausrüstung zu erwerben - von luxuriösesten Golf-Bags bis zur passenden Kleidung - und andererseits, anstatt sich feine wirkliche Golfschuhe zu gönnen, einfache Sneakers mit Cleats tragen.
