  • Shell Cordovan
    5-Eyelet Plain Front Derby (Blucher)
    Bostonian, circa 1980-1990
    Euro 360

    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, here in Europe, the better know Alden and Allen-Edmonds. The great Florsheim and Bostonian exist today as marketing firms, the bulk of their wares being produced off-shore. Lamentable.
    The Bostonian Full Brogue Oxford in this listing, dating from the late-1980s appears to have been among the last of the production that sprang from the American workrooms of this once great shoemaker. This is a handsome classic model in the old Goodyear welted tradition of workmanship, comparable to Florsheim or Hanover of yesteryear or the contemporary Allen Edmonds, if not better made than the latter. With double sole and additional 360 degree Storm Welt (Split Reverse Welt), a robust construction seldom seen today. Wonderful mottled patina as seen in photos; the incomparable beauty of old cordovan.
