Brahma Bull Hide
Wing-Tip Full Brogue Derby (Budapester)
This is one of the relatively few Brahma Bull Hide shoes produced by Florsheim in the 1960 through the 1980s, at which time the firm ceased American production. Because Bull Hide is so extraordinarily tough, so very durable a material and resistant to scuffing, it is most often used in the making of boots. This shoe is extremely well made, with hand sewn welt and horse-shoe nailed heels, This beautiful Full Brogue Derby has endured decades and can be expected to serve handsomely and elegantly for many more decades to come.
Size: US 10.5C……UK 9.5D……Continental 44C, for the slightly narrower foot.
Condition: Excellent, all original, lightly worn.
