For Sale:
**PRICE DROP** Vintage Shell Cordovan Florsheim Imperial Longwings 9C (US) (shipping included)

Will Ship To: CONUS

Price for shipping included, CONUS only please.

 

The soles measure 12 1/4 " long and 4 1/2" wide on the outside. Beefy welt on these old gunboats!

 

As best as I can tell, the inside measures approximately 10 3/4" long and 3 11/16" wide.

 

Inside measurements are, of course, a very imprecise thing, but there you have it. Though these do not fit me, as I understand, vintage Florsheim longwings fit quite true to size.  Please be aware of your measurements before purchase.

 

These lovely shoes are obviously used, but in solid shape for their age. The uppers are clean with no cracks, tears, or any structural damage. I have highlighted in the pictures the few marks that are evident. Most are not very visible in normal light, but I have done my best to accentuate them for your benefit.

 

This model was made in the USA and features the five nail arch and suicide heels (V-cleat).

 

The insole is also remarkably clean, and strange odors do not emanate from within; just the smell of lovely shell cordovan and trad American excellence. I took the pictures after a thorough brushing, and forgot to put the laces back in, but rest assured the original laces are there, and in good repair.

 

 

 

I would consider a trade for a similar shell cordovan shoe in my size (10D US).

 

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.  I am new to this forum, and I want to make this a good start!
