    These are vintage Florsheim Imperial "Longwing" wingtips. Tan scotch grain, 9.5D, great condition, soles probably have a week's worth of walking on them and the insoles look practically new. Double rows of nails in heels with factory heel taps, double soles, Goodyear welted, built to last.

    I haven't even polished them yet but I will do that tomorrow and post new pics. Just wanted to get these up. (Click to enlarge)

    REDUCED - $60 shipped Priority CONUS.

    New pics after a polish (original pics are closer to the real color):

    What size? I do see these from time to time - I'll start picking them up now that I know that people want them.

    If you see any 9 EEE in brown, tan or burgundy, I am your man.

    You got it.

    Currently on hold for sizing questions - does anyone know how these run?

    I actually have this exact shoe, in this size and color. Mine are true to size. They might be the tiniest bit on the narrow size, despite the fact that they appear large.

    I put Brooks Bros. trees in them size 9E (slightly wide) and they just barely fit - maybe that's the narrowness. Thanks for the input.

    13D anything nice and inexpensive I'll be almost certainly in for.

    Yeah mine are a bit on the narrow side. I have yet to wear them because of the inclement weather. They walk a little slippery.

    Oh j, this doesn't bode well. As I mentioned in the Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata thread, I'm using this item as an indicator of what to bid on the ebay pair that'll fit me!

    I wouldn't do that - they are just taking up space and I'm tired of having stuff that doesn't fit me lying around. I went through the ebay completed items and 60 seemed fairer, so...

    I picked up a USA 10 black pair the other day and they fit me even though I am a 10.5D/11D but the fit was very tight... everywhere.
