    Now that my Indian-made black pebbled is broken in and I consider it my most comfortable pair of shoes I'm seriously considering buying more Kenmoors. The pebbled cognac is an obvious next step but I'm also curious about the Indian made burgundy and black non-pebbled ones. Are they corrected grain or full grain?

    Does anyone have pics?

    Get one of each. That'll be 4 pair total.
    Since you were speaking so badly against Florsheim recently in other threads you'll have to go back to those threads and ammend them all and ask special forgiveness to Florsheim for bashing their products.

    Wait, you smell that?
    I thought this thread was going to be about a washer and dryer.

    Which threads? The one I bashed was a low end vintage Florsheim with cardboard insoles. Those shoes are crap, but they aren't Kenmoors at all.

    Are those new Kenmoors Goodyear welted?

    Yup. Aside from the differences in the heel and sole I don't see any difference between vintage and current. Granted I don't actually own a vintage pair yet. http://www.florsheim.com/shop-fl/sho...prod17109.html

    The vintage ones are made of better leather. The indian shoes are not bad shoes, but the classics are the real thing, comparable to the AE/Alden equivalents but with better soles.

    Ya, but I don't see any good deals in my size. I'd rather have new than really worn old.
