Vintage French Shriner shoes -- were these high end or midgrade? - Page 2

post #16 of 18

French Shriner Shoe stopped manufacturing in the 60s.  United Shoe bought the name and brought in some really gross imports.  French Shriner had been manufacturing at 443 Albany Avenue, Boston until the City of Boston took the parking lot of the employees by eminent domain.

When I was young, the name "French Shriner" always suggested to me the image of a stereotypical Frenchman with a waxed mustache and an imperial goatee wearing the fez of the Nobles of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Mystic Shrine.

Do you recall when in the 60's?

If you were in Boston in the 60's, do you know anything about the Esart Company? I know they were bought out by J&M and there is still a J&M store at the same address. These shoes were made by J&M for Esart and are some of the nicest vintage shoes I have
