Hemingway-branded footwear hand-made in El Salvador: a farewell to blisters?

Monday, July 12, 2010


 Ever wondered what it might be like to walk in Ernest Hemingway's shoes? A US company has teamed up with the legendary writer's son to create a Hemingway-branded line of footwear.

An Oregon-based firm, Thomas Raymond, is producing an initial batch of 30,000 pairs of Hemingway shoes, handmade in El Salvador using bison and calf hide. The shoes are divided into "angler", "literary" and "sportsman" collections.
 
The late writer's 82-year-old son, Patrick Hemingway, says his father would be impressed.
