Well, they're for a friend of mine locally. If they end up not working, they will make it to the B&S.

I've seen some true vintage Florsheims with a chisely toe like the ones you see here. Surprising but they existed before KC.

All the pics of the Ducky Browns do not show anything but the classic shapes, as far as I can tell. I have owned the Kenmoor longwings as well as the shortwing bals the Duckies are modeled after. The shape looks the same.

Your copy was pretty good. Sounded like typically bad enthusiastic fashion writing: "while still paying homage..."

The ones I saw were made in India.

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?






Very 70s or mid-90s...

I am a die-hard Florsheim supporter but they butchered a classic with that toe shape.

I wish the toe was a bit more round, other than that I love them.

I am thinking 70's to early 80's.

I actually think those florsheims are kinda cool. Worn on the feet with jeans, I don't think they would look as drastically chunky-square-toed. The camera angle is very extreme in these photos. While I obviosuly prefer the classic round toed florsheims, I'd have these in my rotation just for the shock value.
