    IF YOU SEE THIS AD, THE ITEM IS AVAILABLE AND THE PRICE IS FIRM. Nunn-Bush has been making quality shoes for over a century. On offer is this lovely pair of Chocolate Brown Bluchers in size 9.5EE. They feature a half-leather lining, leather outsoles, and nailed Biltrite rubber heels. They are constructed using the Goodyear-welt process (the way a quality shoe is made) that permits repairs. The shoes have been fully cleaned, conditioned and polished and the leather is soft and in excellent condition. Grab a quality pair of shoes for a fraction of a lousy pair of Chinese shoes from the local mall! Shoe trees are NOT included!

    This lovely pair of Hartt “Gold Bond” Derbies in 8.5D is now up for grabs! They feature full-grain calf, full-leather linings, Goodyear-welted double-leather soles, nailed Biltrite rubber heels, and new laces. Outers, inners and soles are all in excellent, almost-new condition. These shoes have recently been professionally cleaned, conditioned and polished. Hartt, of Fredericton, New Brunswick, was one of the great names in Canadian shoemaking. The Hartt Boot and Shoe Company Ltd. was founded in 1898. The company was eventually acquired by the A.H. Marston Corp. (who already controlled the famous Dack’s brand) in 1957 or 1958. The decision was soon made to move all production for both brands to the Hartt factory, so all Canadian Dack’s or Hartt shoes were henceforth produced in that same factory. The two brands were very similar and offered many identical products. The Dack’s brand was sold via the company’s own stores in major centres and at Eaton’s, while the Hartt name was offered at Simpson’s and also marketed by way of smaller, independent shoe stores throughout the country. Sadly, as in so many other industries, Canadian production stopped altogether in 1999. Buy these excellent Canadian-made shoes for the bargain price of $75, instead of a crappy pair of Chinese shoes from the mall for twice as much! Shoe trees NOT included. The price is firm and if you see this ad, the shoes are still available...

    IF YOU SEE THIS AD, THE SHOES ARE AVAILABLE AND THE PRICE IS FIRM. Up for grabs is a gorgeous pair of vintage USA-made Walk-Over Longwing Bluchers in Size 7.5 EEE/E. Do you have small, but wide feet? These beauties are made for you! They will very likely fit an 8D or 8.5C too. Although no longer in business, Walk-Over was in the shoe-making business for a long time and even made shoes for other companies like Cole Haan and L.L. Bean - especially high-end Bucks and Saddle shoes. My best guess is these particular shoes were produced in the late 1960s or early 1970s. They feature a nice calf leather with fine detail and the desired Goodyear-storm-welted double leather soles, and are fully leather-lined. They have been fully and thoroughly cleaned, the leather conditioned and then given a nice buffing polish. There is very little wear and they look awesome! NOTE! An identical new old stock pair of this very same model just sold two weeks ago on the Classic Shoes For Men website (classicshoesformen.com) that caters to collectors and aficionados for €460! That's C$670. Obviously, these shoes are infinitely better than anything you can buy at the mall (which are probably made in China anyway), so do yourself a favour and put these classy shoes on your feet for a fraction of the price. The shoe trees are NOT included.
