Here is a Christmas present to all the vintage shoe fans – the entire Fall 1969 Florsheim Shoe catalog. I broke it up into three posts because it was almost 90 pages and a single post would require a lot of bandwidth (yours and mine).
The catalog is nearly 50 years old and gives a good overview of the shoe styles during the late 1960s. Buckles appear to be the top shoe fashion trend of 1969.
Imperials start on page 39 and the catalog includes seven pages of the classic Kenmoor gunboat models but no Imperial Yuma. There are just 5 pages on the Royal Imperial (starts on page 52).
Twenty-three models are called the KENMOOR. It would be great if someone could explain what they all have in common besides the name. The last?
It’s interesting to note that many shoes don’t have a length greater than 12 and others only go up to E width (Sorry Steve, it appears you will never find a Kenmoor 93603 or 93606 in your size. The Majestic too).
Enjoy the scans!

David, you are killing it once again. Thanks for the reference — I’ve saved these images locally for future drooling. If only we could time travel and stock up!
Fantastic! Thanks for the upload, looks like you are right about “The Kenmoor” being the name of the last. What’s the difference between the Imperial and Royal Imperial lines? I’m assuming the latter was better/more expensive.
I’m curious if you can enlighten me on Florsheim imperials 36021 models, made in India ?
Sorry, I don’t have any info on that model.
