"Would anyone consider wearing these?"

Yes, I would please. BTW I wear an American size 11 1/2.

Let me know when you get them. I'll give you my address.

Thanks in advance.

I will not buy these weird looking shoes:(
If you want to buy it, here's the link
However, the only size they have in stock is 38. Many larger sizes aren't even available.

They look like touring shoes (non-cleat type) to be used with old-style quill pedals. Duegi used to make a nice pair of suede (tan, not blue) touring shoes back in the olden days.

Yup, Touring Shoes from the '80s.Spunout

Sorry to just chime in and agree but they resemble my early 90s Nike touring shoes.

They made them until recently and then, as I understand it, resumed a small production run for Rivendell. Not sure if they're still making them though - Riv rarely has many sizes. I have a couple of bikes with toe clips and I have two pairs of these shoes - one in the attic for when the first pair wears out. Great for touring, fine for every day riding. I have clipless on a few bikes and can't say I really prefer one or the other except on the off-road and fixed gear bikes, where double sided clipless are pretty near essential.
