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
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.

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.
The price is firm and if you see this ad, the shoes are still available...

Dack’s was THE brand of men’s shoes in Canada for many decades. Founded in
York, Ontario in 1834 months before the city changed its name to Toronto, they
offered both Canadian-made shoes of the highest quality, along with Church or
Cheaney shoes from England.
One of the other great names in Canadian shoemaking was Hartt, of Fredericton,
New Brunswick. The Hartt Boot and Shoe Company Ltd. was founded in 1898 and was
eventually acquired by Dack’s in 1957. Dack’s soon made the decision to move
all production for both brands to the Hartt factory, so all Canadian Dack’s or
Hartt shoes were produced in that same factory.
Sadly, as in so many other industries, Canadian production stopped altogether
in 1999. The company offered very nice English-made shoes until 2009 when,
after 175 years, the business was closed.
In 2012, the Dack’s name was re-launched as Matthew Dack, but all sales are
online and all production in England. Meanwhile, the Hartt label is also back –
with current production in Spain - but the companies are no longer connected.
On offer is this wonderful pair of Dack's Brown Prairie Oxhide Plain-Toe
Derbies in size 11.5E.
They were hand-crafted in the Hartt factory in Fredericton from what Dack’s
called “Prairie Oxhide” but was probably really Water Bison. They feature
hand-sewn vamps, a half-leather lining, leather insoles, leather outsoles, and
nailed rubber heels. The leather is buttery-soft and in excellent condition.
If you buy these, not only will you have a handmade pair of bench-crafted
shoes of bespoke quality, you will literally be wearing Canadian history. If
you take good care of them, you can wear these shoes for the rest of your life
and will them to your son.
OR you could take your $70, go to the mall and pay much more for a crappy pair
of Chinese shoes. Your choice!
Shoe trees are NOT included!
