Check, and check... now all I have to do is to find the skinny fit, high-cut jeans I wore in college before I can finally become the hipster I was always meant to be.

Thanks. I think they are lookers.
The model number is 97625, which was the replacement for the Imperial 93602. The 97625 was rebadged as an Imperial in 1996. The price for new old stock Florsheims can vary considerably. Those on the higher end will be the more common sizes, such as 9, 9.5 or 10D. Asking prices of $300 up to mid $400s are seen on Ebay. Most of those do sell for less if the seller allows buyers to make offers. My seller was asking $350 plus shipping. I made an offer and picked them up for less. One will occasionally find a pair that the seller has no idea what they have and let a pair go for around $100, but this is very rare. The price of NOS Florsheims can also be pretty low if they are an odd size, such as a 14AA. Those will fit so very few people that the price drops. PM me is anyone has additional questions about vintage Florsheims and I will try to point them in the right direction.
That is a great find. I just bought some vintage Florsheim Varsity 30679 longwings from ebay. I've discovered that I prefer all my bluchers without Scotch or pebble grain. l still love the vintage Imperial 93602s but now I'm focusing on some rarer models, the 30678 "weathered moss" might be my holy grail.


My plan is to have them recrafted by Ronald at the Quick Cobbler here in Vancouver. He won some international competitions and is much cheaper than Bedo's. I'll probably make a YouTube video about transformation too.

Apparently this model is single oak but I'm thinking a leather midsole with Dainite sole. Possibly a brown or light brown new welt. I waited too long on a pair of brown Mac Neils on ebay and I'm still kicking myself...

Wore my blue suede strandmoks again while gallavanting about Connecticut. I went to the U.S. submarine museum and the town of New London after a one day stay in Mystic and the seaport museum there.

Both days saw suede shoe use due to a light trip.

If you are getting the shoes re-built, I suggest getting new insoles to replace the previous owner's foot impression. The mid-sole is a good idea to absorb shock IF you are doing plenty of walking on those long wingtips. Let the cobbler inspect the welt first. If the welt is good no need to waste money for new welt.

Did you stop by Mystic Pizza for lunch and does Julia Roberts still wait tables there?
