    My second post to the big board here.

    These are my vintage NOS Florsheim Kenmoors. A bit more rare than the painted sole V-cleat Kenmoors that are often encountered.

    Construction, or at least quality of leather is by far and away highest for any non-cordovan Kenmoor I have seen. Full leather insole and insole liner. Leather lined counters and heal with canvas lined vamp and toe. Marked Union Made on the insole. I guess they did not need five nails in the waist back then, note the tight stitching on the soles. Enjoy.

    Those are cool, although black longwings always strike me as a strange beast. And seeing them reminds me of the NOS cordovan longwings (w/heel cleat) that I bought on ebay and got lost in the mail. [​IMG] Pisses me off still.

    Dang, VR, I keep missing out on the black ones. They remain on my RTW short list before I abandon RTW altogether.

    Is RL still keeping these in stock?

    I guess they've stopped serving these with the hinged 888 trees...too bad.
