This is the most robust Jodhpur Boot I have ever seen. In terms of rarity, it is one of only three pairs of Florsheim Jodhpurs I have ever seen. This one, another in the website and one which will always remain in my personal collection. Moreover, remarkably, apart from reference in this website, there is not a single valid reference to a vintage Florsheim Jodhpur Boot in the internet. This particular pair is as close to new as can be; in lovely original condition. With its taller than usual gusseted (last picture) shaft, I believe it is fair to say that no more sturdy Jodhpur Boot exists. Almost 50 years old; expect another 50 years of brilliant service!
To this particular pair has been added a high-profile, all-terrain, Swiss, Vitamin commando-style sole. I believe it is fair to say that, boot and sole together, no more sturdy footwear exists.
Size Details:US 8.5D…..UK 7.5E….41.5D, for the medium width foot.
A much used pair now restored with new, never used, commando soles and heels. Uppers are much distressed but sound and leather has been treated and is soft as new! Almost 50 years old; expect another 50 years of brilliant service.
