Vintage Bostonian (made in USA) loafers — 9.5 B; $80

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
For sale is a pair of welted, genuine cordovan loafers by Bostonian. By cordovan, I mean the color is a rich cordovan. The leather is calf, I believe. These appear to be from the 60s or 70s, and were American made. They have been very well cared for; there is hardly any creasing on the vamp (also, notice the penny slits), and the doubled soles have mild wear, as do the heels, as if they were worn only short distances and inside. The lining feels like nubuck. Needless to say, there is another twenty years of wear left in them! The size is 9 1/2 B, and fits true to size. For those of you Bostonian collectors who can make sense of the numbers on the tongue, they are:
7 1 03606168
25966

The asking price is $80.00 plus $5.00 "” $85.00 total. A pair of shoe trees will be included. I accept PayPal, M.O.s and Google Checkout. Thanks for looking!

You should probably just describe them as calfskin

Cordovan color, but not shell cordovan. Add a photo of the soles.

Photos of the soles have been added, and I have described them as calf as suggested (since I have no proof they are actual cordovan). Also, I have reduced the price to $70.00 plus shipping. Thanks..

Free bump and good price.

But "cordovan" is not a color. Cordovan is an expensive cattle "membrane" material that's more durable than calfskin.

The color of these shoes is "oxblood"/burgundy
