Shell Cordovan Full Brogue Derby (93605)
The finest and most durable shoe ever made in America.
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, certainly not among the ready-mades. The attention to detail in the Imperials is most impressive. This is exactly the type of shoe leather that will develop an extraordinarily beautiful patina over the years. Florsheim’s (Horween) Shell Cordovan takes to polish exceptionally well and, over time, takes on a warm glow. A shoe of this build quality, with double 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. Compare the Imperial Full Brogue Budapestersto a pair of Church’s, Crockett & Jones, or Alden’s Brogues at 700-800 Euros, all of which I myself sell, and you will see what a bargain this superior Florsheim Imperial is. 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. The perfect all-season shoe, for rain or shine, Town or Country, a beautiful and no-nonsense Full Brogue for the gentleman.

A very fine pair already showing the rich patina for which shell cordovan is so prized. Tops excellent. Bottoms showing little wear. Heels have had a non-slip panel added.
