Full Win9-Tip Brogue Oxford
Out of the over 200 American Shoemakers clustered around New England at the start of the 20 Century, only a handful remain, among them Bostonian, Cole-Haan, J &M and, the better know here in Europe, Alden and Allen-Edmonds. The great Florsheim and Bostonian exist today as marketing firms, the bulk of their wares being produced off-shore. Lamentable. Bostonian too is reduced to selling inexpensive machine made imports, a far cry from the excellent hand-finished shoes for which they were once know. Fortunately, the present shoe, an excellent classic Full Brogue, is a prime example of excellent channel-Goodyear welted production.
Size Details:US 13 narrow, fits 12C equally well. Continental 46C-47B, for the narrower foot. Sold without tres.
New and unworn.
