    I bought this pair of vintage Florsheim shell cordovan longwings, and they arrived with some cracking around a couple of the eyelets. is there any way to revive or repair these? They're hard to see when the shoe is on, so they don't really bother me as a visual flaw, but is there a way to repair...

    I just thrifted a pair of lightly-used Florsheim LWBs in an unusual color. Although I haven't spent a lot of time researching these, from my AAAC searches, the shoes look to be the a color called Golden Harvest, a light tan with a darker patina around the broguing. In the sunlight, these look...

    I'm completely new to this forum, so I apologize in advance if I commit a posting-etiquette sin. My question: What is the make and vintage of these shoes? I picked these shoes up at a Salvation Army for $15, but I need help identifying them. This was my first thrift purchase, so please don't...

    These Florsheims looks similar to sharkskin, but I don't think they are. Any ideas? I appreciate any help.

    I have a pair of 93605 marked Florsheim Longwings. In order to bring out their full potential I (mis)used some polish removal techniques I've picked up on the internet. I used a dull knife edge to scrape out some of the excess polish and then a wet rag to try and scrub the creases. Once I used...

    I have a gift certificate to Penney's and I want to snag a pair of decent loafers to accompany my only other pair of dress shoes: some excellent black J&M oxfords. These Florsheim's are what I believe are the best quality available at the online Penney's store: Pisa Plain or Tassel Como...

    I did not see anything similar to this on the forum, so I thought I'd pass it along. Hope you enjoy the read. https://www.chilit.org/Papers%20by%20author/Bowman%20--%20Florsheim.htm

    Gents, Because of the genorosity of some folks over the holidays, I was able to purchase two pair of Allen Edmonds on heavy discount from Nordstrom. The first pair is the Montgomery Split toe blucher, in brown. Nice shoe. Its the other pair I am having a problem with. Label on...

    Went to the Florsheim site and noticed a new pair of boots on sale. The site showed they didn't have my size in stock so I logged in to the webchat. Operator told me they didn't have them at the warehouse but they could order them from one of their stores and have them shipped to me for free...

    I know the Florsheim name isn't what it used to be, but I ran across these shoes online. I'm considering them because the size and price are right for me. The seller was given these by his father to sell so he doesn't know anything about the shoe other than it's never been worn. The...

    These are the shoes which led me to AAAC. Yes, I abused them. When I got them 10 years ago they were in very good condition: no scratches, scuffs, or noticable wear. I wore them only occasionally until about a year and a half ago when I found myself with nothing presentable and unwilling to...

    I have sent my Aldens back to Alden for recrafting. Now I am looking at my Allen Edmond and Forsheims and thinking of sending them in. Is the general consensus that one should send Aldens back to Alden, Allen Edmonds back to Allen Edmond, and Florsheims to Cobblestone? Dissenting opinions...
