1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hello Gentlemen,

    If you love American-made shoes - here is the holy grail pair. Vintage Florsheim's highest-quality line: The Royal Imperial once represented the pride and joy of American shoemaking. This pair is made of deep burgundy #8 color Horween Shell Cordovan leather. Cleaned and treated with Venetian shoe cream to moisturize and polish - this pair is ready to wear. Superb condition - shell rippling and creasing are present, but nothing of detriment. 360-storm welt makes for one sturdy shoe. The tongue of the shoe sees marks and discoloration, though not visible when worn. The 5-nail soles exhibit wear but are still firm. The V-Cleat heels are worn and should be replaced soon - as most choose to do with the so-called "suicide heels." :D. Made in the USA - price includes Priority shipping CONUS. Harder-to-find size 10.5 3E, feel free to utilize the measurements below. Shoe trees not included.

    Measurements:
    Length (along bottom end to end) - a hair under 12.75"
    Width (at widest point) - just over 4.75"

    I have 8 pair of vintage Florsheim Royal Imperials that have never been worn. They are the ones with the full leather soles and heals, and have the V plate in the heals. They vary in size from 9 E to 9 1/2 E, and are black or brown in color. All of them are these sizes because this is the size I wear. I started collecting them in the 1990s when they discontinued making them this way. They were hands down the best shoe made. Could you tell me what they are worth, and are you interested in them.
