I got a pair of NOS Florsheim wingtips that I need to verify that they are shell. I really don't want to wear/crease them to find out. They are a dark burgundy. Darker than other Florsheim Shell shoes I have experienced. They retailed for $165 new, but I don't know how old they are. They have the number 93605 written below the size inside the shoe, and on the outside of the box. I currently own a pair of Shell wintips that have the same number on the interior. They are also very shiny for being however old they are. I know for a fact that they aren't CG, so don't let the shine point to that. They only reason I am hesitant that they are shell is the box labels them as "brown," and the color is very dark. I am either going to sell them, or sell my used pair and keep them. I don't want to sell them as shell and them not be such. I also don't want to keep them (sell my own), and then they aren't shell. I have attached pics to assist in answering. My main question is "is that number the model # and if so, would a calfskin and shell shoe have the same model #?" Thanks for the help.
