Bought for myself in France this summer from a brocante, a pair of antique or vintage (1940s?) very well made brown suede oxford style shoes, with I think a safety toe, and metal heel and toe tips to sole. They fit me fine and I am a standard UK 6  - my feet are not 'vintage shoe narrow' either! 

I've purchased some modern waxed cotton laces and added them, as the originals were missing. The soles are marked 'Superior - Limoges' I think.

Measures: 

Insole just over 10" from heel into toe (externally just over 11" heel to toe)

ball of foot externally 4"

Condition: 

Unworn old stock, they show age as rust to the eyelets on the inside but this is not visible when worn. Aside form the odd scuff/press tp the uses as shown they are very good and clean. 

They are quite a chunky shoe, and as they've not been worn will take a little wearing in but suede not too stiff, so shouldn't take long.
