Florsheim Longwings by Ducky Brown: A Review

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Ducky Brown went decidedly vintage with his latest Spring '10 take on The Florsheim Shoe.

Updated for this season with exposed metal eyelets, a soft square toe, and fresh color combinations while still paying homage to the original via the revival of the V-Cleat heel.

What's not to like?

Really? About the only thing I do like is the heel and sole.

How's the construction? I remember reading some early reviews that suggested it was not so hot.

Why did they mess with the toe shape??

Nice to see the old heel, sole, and logo, and hopefully this bodes well for Florsheim to get back in touch with its heritage.

oh my... did kenneth cole somehow switch up the designs or something right before it went to production?

I don't like the shape of the toe.

OK I need to come clean, these are actually an unusual vintage pair. I never saw another pair quite like these so made up some quick copy imagining I would be called out in short order.

On another note, I heard that the Ducky Longwings are actually made in the USA according to a website that sells them. Have been unable to confirm...

Edit: Rebel called me out, good catch.

Ha.. You stole those from me, and I got the Nettleton PTBs. I felt guilty, until now.

I love these. What are they really called?

I have a pair of F09 ducky brown longwings and have nothing but good things to say about them- as comfortable as my BBBF alden longwings although I don't know anything about their long term wear. They seem to be as well made as the aldens to be honest.
