*Vintage AMERICAN JOBBER Scotch Grain Derby: 42D (US 9D)
Vintage American Jobber
Plain front Scothc Grain Derby
Frankly, I do not see much difference between this well mad shoe and Florsheim’s identical model except the price, of course. If this were branded Florsheim, it would be twice the price. This has all the hall marks of a top quality shoe, an excellent grade of Scotch Grain Calfskin, Goodyear welted with additional 360 degree storm welt (Split reverse Welt) and cleated heel, again reminiscent of Florsheim. Clearly it was made by a first class American Jobber for rebranding by a contemporary retailer.
Size Details:US 9D…..UK 8E…..European 42D, for the medium width foot.
Excellent! Original soles and heels modestly worn. A worn through spot in the back of one shoe should not interfere with full function.
