Weyco Canada (Florsheim) told me on the phone last week,
that they are no longer making Kenmoor.

I asked the woman to please confirm this.
She came back on the line with the same story.

Can someone please confirm this for Weyco USA?


I was told the 'Duckie Brown' campaign has been launched

here are some links with photos.

What do you all think of these re-painted Kenmoors?

I think Sean Young in Blade Runner was a babe.

The boots are kinda nice. I would never wear them and they are humorous but I still like them.

A bit of a psycho babe, but a babe none the less.

Looks lighter to me than Ravello. Probably Whiskey or something similar.

She was a Replicant, and she wasn't the "Pleasure Model".

I don't think it's ravello, it's some other color that Horween makes and Alden doesn't use. there will probably be like 12 of them

The Caramel in shell cordovan looks interesting. I wonder if BB in Toronto will carry them.

Does anybody have experience with the Shell Cordovan Brogue Boots from this collab? I'm looking for a brogued boot done up in black shell cordovan, and this Navy looks like the closest and nicest alternative around but based on some other posts I've read, the quality of the F/DB collab isn't putting it in the range of Alden yet, though at a comparable pricepoint.

Any inputs?
