*New – MASON “Executive Imperial” Full Brogue Oxford, Circa 1990: US 8.5D (41.5D)
Mason Shoe Company
Calfskin Full Wing-Tip Brogue Budapester (Derby)
The name “Executive Imperial” was the trade mark of the Mason Shoe Company, Chippewa Fall, Wisconsin. Mason was known for producing shoes for high-end emporia for rebranding. In any case, they produced an excellent shoe that resembles the other less well-know but excellent firm, Nettleton, This one appears to have been produced for an unknown retail store (their label has been removed) and most likely was a store model.
With Goodyear welted sole, this is a massive brogue in a lovely grade of full-grain calfskin, a classic business or leisure shoe of the old American school.
Size Details:US 8.5D......UK 7.5E......Continental 41.5D, for the medium width foot.
