    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 known.

    The Bostonian Saddle Oxford Golf Shoe presented here, dating from the late-1980s or early 1990, appears to have been among the last of the production that sprang from the American workrooms of this once great shoemaker. Bostonian, like Florsheim, Cordwainer, Nunn-Bush and others, produced more than one price and quality level of product, in some cases even taking orders for custom shoes, extremely desirable rarities today. This is a marvelous classic model in the old tradition of workmanship, a handsome and unusually durable shoe, equal to the great Florsheims and Cordwainers and Footjoys and clearly superior to almost any modern Golf shoe. The leather itself is a warm Tan calf that will take beautifully to polish.  Do remember to polish these before wearing them outside.

    NOTE: converting this marvelous shoe to a street shoe is quite straight forward and can be done by us before shipping to you. Cost: Euro 90.
