*NEW – (Modern, Offshore) FLORSHEIM IMPERIAL Burgundy Full Brogue Budapester: 41.5D
Full Brogue Derby Budapester
This is a modern off-shore product marketed by the firm that now owns the Forsheim name, a shoe not to be confused with the great old Florsheim of the 1980’s and earlier. Nevertheless it is a surprisingly well made shoe using a fine quality leather almost a plum or aubergine colour. This is proof positive that not only Europe and America are capable of producing a quality product. This piece of leather will take to polish beautifully. Notice the 360 degree Goodyear welt sewn into a channeled sole and the additional split-reverse welt (storm welt), as in the 1980s originals. Overall it appears to be nicely finished, a robust shoe that certainly competes favourably for build quality with any other modern Brogue, all of which are considerably more expensive, some reaching Euro 1000 and above.
