ITEM DETAILS
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.

And the USA has only two such survivors: Allen Edmonds and Alden. Available now is this lovely pair of Allen Edmonds "Westchester" model i...
