Florsheim Long Wing Models

Have I mentioned that I like long wings? No? Well, I like long wings. And I like lists. Lists help me organize information. And this list of Florsheim long wings should help you as well.

For this list, I focused solely on Made in USA long wings manufactured during the Cold War era and made from cattle skin leather. No Shell Cordovan or exotic leather models are listed. For Shell, read my post on Florsheim’s Shell Cordovan modals. And to keep this list a reasonable length I also excluded a few other types of models: long wing spectators; custom models; and the 70000 series of models.

Where can you find the model number for a pair of Florsheim shoes? Read this post.

This list not complete. There are likely a couple more models out there. But this list includes models seen on eBay in the past couple years. The shoes on the list are categorized by product line: Florsheim Imperial; Florsheim Royal Imperial; and Florsheim Blue Label.

If you are looking for a pair or selling a pair, these are the most common models on eBay:

  1. Florsheim Imperial 92604 Kenmoor – Black
  2. Florsheim Imperial 93602 Kenmoor – Hand Stained Brown

  1. Should we assume that models not listed as “corrected” or “binder leather” are made with FULL grain uppers? Also, is it fair to say that Royal Imperial > Imperial > Blue Line in terms of quality and construction?

    Thanks, and carry on the great work you’ve been doing.

    1. In general – yes. Some of the 1960s Imperials were better than 1990s Royal Imperials. 1950s Blue Line were top quality shoes. For the leather question, I wrote the type of leather if I had info on it. The 30831 and 20819 look like corrected leather to me.

  2. I found myself a pair of Kenmoors in what looks like Coventry Calf, but the oddest thing about them is they don’t have a model number. Ever come across that before?

  3. And I’ve got an interesting-ish story about the Golden Harvest, the 93631. On a whim about five years ago, I bought a pair of Kenmoors off of eBay. The heathen who was selling them had spray painted them (for some reason) with an orange Meltonian shoe coloring and was touting them as looking pretty good. When I got them, I was speechless. I couldn’t live with a pair of shoes in my closet that looked like a grade school art project, so, I decided to strip off all the paint. They came out looking not too terrible, so I decided to keep them. Only recently–say, a month ago–did I learn that they were, in fact, a pair of Golden Harvests. They’ve lost quite a bit in color after the stripping. Anything I can do to help get that color back? They’ve been conditioned probably half a dozen times already with an all-natural shoe cream I like to use.

    1. Its a tough color to restore since the color is so light. Its much easier to fix up a darker pair. Black is the easiest. I struggled with another pair of golden harvest that was in rough shape and finally gave up. They always looked like flithy old shoes. Sorry.

  4. Hi David , love your blog and have learned so much . I bought #30813 on ebay . They dont appear to be storm welted . Do you lnow if they are goodyear welted ?
    They have no country of origin and appear like new . The insole has the heel florsheim badge . But in front of that under the toebox to the arch looks kinda bare , as if its missing the underfoot front of the insole covering . They’re so pristine , it’s hard to imagine anything was removed from the inside . The date code is “CH” . Is therr any info you may have . I just like to know .
    Thank you .

    1. I believe those were made in the 1970s. They are almost certainly goodyear welted. Most vintage Florsheim shoes have a heel pad, the insole isn’t fully covered. Hope that helps.

      1. It helps very much . Thank you . Wore them yesterday . They crease a bit on the vamp as they are a bit long . My feet felt fine , and I felt sharp . Thank you for your reply , and for awakening in me a deep appreciation for shoes that “the greatest generation” wore . God Bless .

  5. David I’m sorry I have another “rookie” question …What type of alcohol to clean the interior . Is it isopropyl or butyl or are the interchangeable . Also, is there any other tips you might recommend to “freshen” the interiors of a used pair of shoes ? Thank you .

    1. I generally use 70% isopropyl alcohol. Then follow that with a UV treatment. Sometimes I will condition the inside of the shoe with lexol.

  6. David, what’s your opinion on 31881? Construction? Are they made in US? Full grain leather? GYW? Do they run similar to 93602, 93605?

    Thanks

    1. They were made in the USA and are goodyear welted. They are going to be a lower quality that Imperial Kenmoors – thinner soles, not leather lined. They should have a similar fit
