Gentlemen, I'm really pleased to list these amazing 1940s, possibly 50s pair of cap-toed lace up oxford shoes from Roblee, a company no longer in the business. The leather is a fabulous honey color that has never seen water stains or really any discoloration- the soles are also in excellent shape.

There are numerous scrapes here and there, and a small tear at the ankle of the left shoe that someone repaired long ago. Also of note is a scrape on one of the toes, but in my estimation They're completely wearable as you can see, and if they fit me I'd put them in rotation, I really dig these. Unique and rare, versatile in their applicability.

They're a Men's 11 C. That means they're in the middle, standard, of the width spectrum, running A to EE, and rarely the EEE, EEE being the widest. I of course took some measurements for you:

Inside the shoe from heel to toe - 11 inches
The width across the widest part of the toepad (balls of your foot) - 4 3/8
Width across the heel of the sole - 3 1/4 inches

There is zero odor, save leather. For being 60-70 odd years old, they're in awesome shape.

Shipping's $12.10 for priority mail in the USA. That's 2-3 day max travel time, tracked, and they're boxed.

I'll ship these anywhere in the world and I will refund any shipping overages. Overseas buyers, Please read :

I've sold 50 items on etsy and at around item 25, I raised my shipping quotes. Due solely to shipping packages overseas and paying 200% or 300% more at the time of shipping. Sometimes it effectively nullified any profit, so I changed my estimates. You have my word I will refund you any overages- you pay what I pay to get it to your door. I have sterling feedback and I take real pride in owning and operating The Thread Locker.

I love my overseas patrons, and love to find things for people across the globe. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me- I love to answer questions and always have time for you.

Lastly, you are guaranteed satisfaction. If you decide they're not for you, Send them back in the condition I shipped them out to you, and I'll refund your purchase price and original shipping.

Thanks for looking and I hope you're having a fantastic 2012. - Skylar, The Thread Locker
