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

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.

      1. Wow. Those shoes are 50 years old. Amazing. He got a good deal on them. A lot of vintage collectors are looking for that model. Its super rare.

  1. I’m trying to find out what model my Florsheim Cordovin leather shoes are. The model number does not match anything on the website that I have seen. It is stamped on the bottom Genuine Cordovin and most of the label on the inside of the shoe is rubbed off, but I can see that it says Taylor Made with the gold oval. They are long wings burgundy color. The numbers inside are 90 5311016 7 then on the second line is B/D 6295. That’s all there is. Any knowledge on the model ? Thank you.

  2. Hi. I have a Imperial tassel long wing loafer 93245. This is not on your list but has a close #, appears to be shell, and I can’t find a similar long wing comparison. How can I tell otherwise? Thanks.

    1. The 93245 is not shell. I am 100% on that. I have seen worn versions and you can see creases in the upper leather. Shell will have rolls, not creases.

  3. Hey David, What about the Florsheim Royal imperial shoes without a serial number? Where can I find pictures about those?
    Thanks!
