*Vintage FLORSHEIM Spade Sole Full Brogue Oxford, Circa 1970: 44D (US 10.5D)
Size: 44-44.5 [US.10.5-11] [UK 9.5-10}
6-Eyelet Spade Sole Full Brogue Oxford
This elegant spade-sole Florsheim Full Brogue Oxford stands in contrast to Florsheim’s much heavier Budapesters (Derbys). The overall appearance is more delicate and rather sleeker. My old clients have grown weary of hearing me extol the virtues of the vintage Florsheim Imperials. Little more be said other than this shoe being a handsome business or daytime shoe in a rich, deep and very correct brown calfskin, quite similar in style although superior in build to Allen Edmond’s “McAllister”. a handsome traditional model, very useful and a basic in the wardrobe. The long line of the shoe with plain toe flatters and slims the foot. In short, both a practical and a representative shoe for the gentleman and nicely finished. Built over a steel shank and Goodyear welted, of course.
Size Details:10.5D (US).....9.5E (UK).....44D Continental, for the medium width foot.
Although very lightly worn, this shoe shows considerable checking at the vamp and elsewhere. After my having deep-treated the leather with Auto-Glym, this should not worsen. Priced accordingly at one third its ordinary price. Sold without trees.
