Full Brogue Budapester
“The finest and most durable shoe ever made in America.”
This is a unique pair of the great Florsheim Imperial Shell Cordovan Full Brogue with a custom intallation of a full Vibram all-weather rubber sole and heel. Not only does this massive rubber sole promise protection in every weather but can be expected to be remarkably comfortable in both town or country. 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 Vibram 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. The perfect all-season shoe, for rain or shine, Town or Country, a beautiful and no-nonsense Full Brogue for the gentleman.
Size Details:9.5C(US), 8.5D(UK) eine deutsche 42.5C, for the somewhat narrower foot.
Newly restored with non-slip "Topy" rubber sole and combination heels. Superb, showing trivial wear to custom Vibram sole. This pair has a small flaw in the brogueing of the right shoe, see picture 1 and 5, otherwise fine.
