Old shoes?

A Couple of recent editions from my bargain browsing.
First up, Clarks x Duffer '20ANS', these are a Desert Rain model in beige - always a good colour in suede, on top of a weighty crepe sole, released around five years ago for Duffer's 20th Anniversary.
Second up, I'm made up with these for the price I paid, a rarity aswell, vintage Barrie Ltd Blucher Moccasin, hand sewn in the US, a now defunct brand, they remind me of Quoddys, Yuketens or Beans but a lesser known brand from New Haven, CT.
Those in the know over the water may know more than me, here's a little piece on the history of the brand superb quality leather uppers on a tough vibram sole, comfier than a pair of old slippers too.
