New (old) shoes


Working in downtown Mitchell has some advantages. I picked up these classic shoes at the Vinnies op shop in Gungahlin in my lunch break. I think they are mens shoes from the 1960s, but I couldn't figure out if the stamp on the bottom said 1965 or 1955...
Whilst doing some research to find out where these shoes were made, this is the only other pair of Dulwich shoes I could find. Think they were made in Adelaide, but I'm not sure.Very sexy buckle up loafers from the 1960s..

The other pair of shoes I picked up from the Mitchell Salvos op shop (also in my lunch break... on a differnet day) were a pair of Rocketdog shoes. I had a pair of Rocketdogs a few years back (also bought from an op shop but in Newcastle) and they were just as cool as these comfy little canvas shoes. They look like they have never been worn and been at the bottom of someone's wardrobe for a long time.

Looks like 1955 to me - and they are FABULOUS.
