Inner sole has silver-stamped "MADE BY Walter Sargent Northamptonshire, England"
Looking up Walter Sargent, it seems he was making shoes in the early 20th century, and these seem to be in exceptionally good condition for shoes of that age. They're obviously vintage, but I was thinking 60s when I bought them. I can't find any additional information through Google.
I have had the heels and soles reinforced (and thickened substantially) since purchase.
If anyone has any knowledge of Walter Sargent manufacturing dates, or brand transfers, or knows anything else about these - my favourite pair of shoes - I would love to know.
