The Florsheim Shoe
Vintage Sharkskin/Calfskin Spectator
This is an exceptionally lovely shoe, very well made, a collectors item, and not a design we will see again in this century, a 4-eyelet sharkskin vamp set into a wing-tip brogue calfskin surround, most likely dating to the 1940 or early 1950s. The effect is startlingly beautiful.
Size Details:US 9C……UK8D…..Continental 41C, for the somewhat narrower foot.
Tops: truly excellent, near new, but for one scratch seen in the pictures. No doubt it can be polished over.
Bottoms: All original, showing modest wear, heel logo very much in tact.
Interior: Trivial checking that will respond well to cream.
