Unless you've got really small feet, not much use for wearing though as they're all sized 40 or smaller.

But good for display or as something for a shoe maker to copy. There are some videos on Youtube of someone making shoes by hand, I mean really by hand and not the usual "hand made" which means putting a part into a machine by hand. I'm not saying that hand made is better, but just that the traditional all leather cycling shoe is something someone could make for themselves at home using simple hand tools.
