Here is a crappy pic showing the heel peel on the Florsheims. These have the metal heel cleet and double row of nails on the heel that you would expect from FLS Cordovan...

I've not seen any that weren't vintage.

They are vintage due to the general construction. The insole, soles, and logo are all vintage. By the way, they are definitely cordovan

Shoe, I would just go ahead and buy the vintage. Wait for a clean one in your size and bid on it.

Signs I look for are minimal scraping on the outsole (dead stock is of course better but they usually go over $200), no signs of walking through a puddle, and a clean insole. Something like this is usually $100-$150.

are you talking about on ebay? where do you find this ?
post #6607 of 14986
Yep on ebay.
the great thing about florsheim imperials is that there were so many of them back in the day, but can you imagine anyone actually throwing any away? They are indestructible, I'm sure 90% went to thrift stores. They all come up eventually.

I see you're doing well with the auction, which is great! I'm still confused by the peeling and can't, in good faith, list them as cordovan so I'm glad you are able to do so!

Thank you. I've seen quite a bit of shell cordovan and there are different variations but these are without a doubt, shell. Thanks again for the great deal.

Coincidentally I just bought this very same shoe in nearly the same condition and a half-size smaller for $50; I hope they go for as much as these will:

That's another SFer. I think you guys have cornered the market on these.

Speaking of the Nettletons, they just arrived and have been revived. Am I alone in the enjoyment that bringing a pair of US-made shell cordovan shoes back to life brings me?

Flipping for a profit doesn't hurt either.

Real deal on these, or did I get snookered? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=300151348624

Good deal Tony, but you do realize these shoes are "Cordovan colored", and not Cordovan leather.

Correct?
