*Nunn-Bush BROWN/White Corfam Full Brogue Spectator: 42,5D

Artikelnummer: 28014100
Brown/White “Plimatic” Corfam
Full Brogue Derby Spectator
Euro 220
DuPont's ill-fated Corfam was the first poromeric material in history and was introduced in 1963 at the Chicago Shoe Show. It was the centerpiece of the DuPont pavilion at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair. DuPont manufactured Corfam at its plant in Old Hickory, Tennessee from 1964 to 1971. After spending millions of dollars marketing the product to shoe manufacturers, DuPont withdrew Corfam from the market in 1971 and sold the rights. While Corfam is mainly remembered as a textbook marketing disaster, it is still in use today in various products, for example certain types of equestrian saddle girth, and continues to be very popular in the military and other uniformed professions where shiny shoes are an asset. Its disadvantages were its stiffness which did not lessen with wearing and its relative lack of breathability. Its major advantages over natural leather were its durability and its high gloss finish that could be easily cleaned with a damp cloth and that it deflects dirt and wet rather effectively, in other words, an excellent shoe for the country or for attending a sporting event or a garden party in questionable weather. This leather lined Full Brogue Derby by Nunn-Bush is cream Scotch Pebble Grain over dark brown long-wing and quarters. It is a properly Goodyear Welted (Rahmengenaeht) Shoe. It is certainly a collectors item as this material was in use for only 7 years, 40 years ago. An attractive and highly practical shoe that presents you in good style while protecting you in every weather.
