Now I just need to take up bowling...

My new favorite find are these Endicott Johnson bowling shoes. (In very good condition) The EJ tanneries closed in 1968 and the last of the manufacturing plants closed in 1998. I’ve done some research and can’t find anything that would give me an age estimate on the shoes. Given the style and look of them I’d say they’re vintage. I plan to wear them with dark jeans, perhaps cuffed or rolled up. Another great find, and what I’ll possibly be paring with the shoes are vintage Lacoste sweaters. I checked around in the internet, and they can go for well over $50.00. I’ve managed to find 3 at Goodwill and thrift stores, I haven't paid more than $6.00. They’re classically preppy and never go out of style.
