Florsheim Shell Cordovan Models

Hello. I had a few readers request a list of Florsheim Shell Cordovan models. And do what I am told. Sometimes. So here it is. It should be useful for vintage shoe enthusiasts.

This list primarily covers Made in USA models from the 1960s to 1990s that have appeared on eBay. I broke them up by product line: Florsheim Imperial; Florsheim Royal Imperial; and Florsheim Blue Label. I also catagorized them by frequency:

  • Common: 6+ pairs listed on eBay in a given month
  • Uncommon: 1 to 5 pairs listed on eBay in a given month
  • Rare: 1 to 5 pairs listed on eBay in a year
  •  
    This list is not authoritative. There are likely to be other Florsheim shell cordovan model numbers. Monks, boots and loafers are styles that could have missing models because I don’t look at them very often. I also excluded pre-1960s “S-” models.

    For custom, MTO, or special order models, I labelled the model number as “Limited“.

    Where do you find the shoe model number? Unless it is worn off, its on the inside of the shoe. Read the post on Florsheim model numbers.

    Have a pair of Florsheim shoes that you believe are shell cordovan but they are not on the list? Most likely they are not shell but again, this isn’t 100% accurate so feel free to leave a comment or send me an email through the “Contact” link. At some point, I will publish a list of non-shell models sometime so this “not shell” categorization can be explicit rather than implicit.

    According to this Ashland Leather post, Florsheim used Horween color #4 for their brown models.

    If you are looking to buy a pair, read my guide to buying a Florsheim Imperial 93605.
