Here’s an opportunity you will likely never see locally again…

Perhaps the greatest of all the vintage Canadian shoemakers was the John McHale company of London, Ontario. At their peak, the McHale shoe was the equal of anything made anywhere in the world and the products from the 1940s-50s are much-sought by collectors everywhere.

The company was acquired in the mid-1950s by the same parent that controlled the venerable Florsheim brand and production continued at a very high level until the end of the 1950s. At that point, the quality declined from the absolute peak, but was still a hand-made, high-end shoe made right here in Canada. By the 1970s, Canada could no longer competes with low-cost production from overseas and literally hundreds of Canadian companies were no more.

This very nice pair of McHale 61206 Black Plain Toe Derbies are available in excellent condition in the hard-to-find size 11.5E. They were produced in the 1960s to early 1970s. They have been fully cleaned, conditioned and polished and are good to go! These will also likely fit someone who wears a 12D too.

Slip them on your feet for less than a crappy pair of shoes from the mall and be impossibly hip!

Shoe trees NOT included.
