This is all around amazing. I cannot wait until mine come in, december can't arrive quickly enough. Great shots @Burzan and @wooksb 

 

 

Ditto!  I'm hoping I can get mine to lighten up a bit like burzan's.

Definitely digging the boots! However, I do feel like the jeans are concealing the shoes beauty in the third picture, but all around good looks!

The Horween Mahogany Shell is definitely a fall color 

Everything about this picture has a crisp feeling to it. Looks amazing.

Vintage Florsheim Royal Imperials. Really great condition - especially considering their age.

Ha! I immediately sent David / @vcleat an email when I found these on eBay at a great price. Looks like they are from 1991. 97626 model. Seems pretty identical to the 93605 save the double row of nails on the heel.

A few more quick shots. Sorry that my iPhone camera doesn't do these any justice.

You should be very happy with those shoes. I have the same style and wore them today. I am surprised that no forum members have jumped on a New Old Stock Horween shell Florsheim in 10D currently listed on Ebay. Apparently one of the last ones Florsheim made some years back. You can see it by clicking here.

@AHS Those shoes look amazing. Great color. They appear to have been worn 4 or 5 times max. 11C is a sleek size. Nice find!

True, but I never said they were cheap. But please direct me to unworn shell for that price. The very cheapest I have found, new, are Allen Edmonds seconds on sale now for $399, regularly $529. The Florsheims that are listed originally sold for over $500 and that was a number of years ago. AE firsts are currently $650 and Alden have crossed $700. If these were my 11 eee clod hoppers they would be mine.

not horween, but not sure who their supplier is. I want to say I recently read they had changed/added another supplier, maybe japanese 

post #2804 of 3040
I think Meermin moved to an Italian provider... Is that Comipel? I bought one pair of Japanese shell shoes from Meermin and didn't like them, very dry and just didn't feel great. I only have around 10 pairs of shell, but all from vass.

I think the new tannery is this one:

They mentioned Tuscany in some of their posts.
