BTW, it's sad to confess this, but it wasn't from the file name that I knew the maker...
I thought you google image searched the photo, I'm sorry I discounted your encyclopedic knowledge of shoes and the ability to pick out a maker and line just by one picture of a shoe in 3/4 profile. You are truly amazing.
Well, to be honest it wasn't quite that amazing... I remember you mentioned liking J&M at some point in the past, and every shoe maker tends to photograph their shoes from a very slightly different angle for their catalogues, so if you're seen them at some point, that creates a visual memory associated with the maker. From there, it wasn't difficult to put 2+2 together.

So yeah, call it shoe logic rather than shoe idiot savantism...
