Full Brogue Derby (Budapester)
This is an excellent skived Goodyear Welted (with additional storm welt) Full Brogue in Oxblood Calf sourced by Sears in its heyday in the 1980s. This vintage Derby is far superior in build and finish than most shoes on the market today. Remember that Sears had to complete with Florsheim and many other top American producers of the time.
Sears had the largest domestic revenue of any retailer in the United States until October 1989, when Walmart surpassed it, By 2018 Sears was reduced to being the 31st-largest retailer in the United States. After several years of further decline, its parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on October 15, 2018.
