    My old clients have grown weary of hearing me extol the virtues of the vintage Florsheim Imperial Budapesters. Not that they disagree that Florsheim made a shoe that will not soon be equaled in the world again, certainly not among the ready-mades. As can be seen, this is exactly the type of shoe leather, Florsheim’s (Horween) Shell Cordovan, that develops an extraordinarily beautiful patina over the years. A shoe of this build quality, with full leather sole, is a gift from the gods for a big or a heavy man or any man who is hard on shoes. You will be wearing this pair long after you have walked out of several other pairs of less substantial pairs. Read what my other clients have said about this shoe; they rave, and rightly so. Have a pair for yourself; you will not be disappointed, a perfect shoe for Town or Country, a beautiful and no-nonsense Full Brogue for the gentleman.
