ITEM DETAILS
These classic Florsheim Plain-Toe Bluchers in Black are now available. This is a vintage Canadian-made 77513 model in a hard-to-find 11.5E. The shoes are in excellent, near-new condition and look better in person than in the overexposed photos attached.

Some history: Florsheim is one of the best-known shoemakers in the world, with a history dating back to 1892. At some time in the late 1950s (1959, I believe), the company that then controlled Florsheim also acquired the greatest of ALL the Canadian shoemakers - the John McHale Company of London, ON - and the McHale plant subsequently began producing the Canadian Florsheim products too. I've never been able to find out exactly when Florsheim closed this plant and ceased Canadian production, but I'd guess it was the 1980s or 1990s.

These bluchers feature the desired Goodyear-welting of quality footwear, thick double-leather soles, beautiful, smooth exteriors, half-leather-lined insoles and padding under the tongue.

Grab these high-quality Canadian shoes for less than some crappy pair of Chinese-made shoes from the Avalon Mall!

IF YOU SEE THIS AD, THE SHOES ARE AVAILABLE AND THE PRICE IS FIRM.
