I am original old school head and I had flavors of these. My favorite was the Burgandy Lace up's These where hot. Then the Wallabee's came out and took over. The British walkers were the official Uptown shoe and the clark wallabee's were the Brooklyn shoe. Then came the Ballys Alexis. Another Throw back for you. Things were so much better back in the days.

This shoe was the fire do you hear me. Burgundy was the colr slip on of course with the tassle. Nothing like rocking a pair withe a matching CHAMS de BARON button down, Navy BLue Calvins Or LEE Demins ANd Of Course THEE KANGOL, A pair of Cazelle's And APeterbilt JACKET. Your ready to hit the Duece.

Man you all bringing back memories, my favorite pair of British Walkers were a Blue and Light Blue pair of Suede and Leather BWs. Pair of Calvins or Lees, Stradler 3/4 Trench or Sheepskin, Mock Neck or Alpaca sweater, (my favorite was a royal Blue with White, Lt Blue and Royal V's on the neck or the Carnigan sweaters w/ the stripes running down from Delancey. Shark Skins or Plaids, and do not forget the Nylon Socks w/ White tube socks underneath or the Argyles w/ the Clarks Wallabees, Desert Boots or Clark Padmore. And yes, cannot forget those Playboys, they are back???? I have been down in Florida, please say it is so. I remeber my Rust suede pair of Ballys. And two-Toned Cazals and the YSL frames.

Been lookin' for Playboys for some time....How old are ya'll anyway?...If you don't remember Paris underwear you ain't old enuf. They used to come in every color in the rainbow....they were nylon..felt good like silk, especially when you were slow dancing to the Delfonics, or the Mad Lads,or Love Men the had to be there...Yo,..check out, free shipping on purchase and return...they sell that Stacey Adams Sanders shoe from the previous note, and it's real close to Playboys...maybe they bought out the company. Anyway check out Mcreedy and Schreiber 213 E.59st NYC off 2nd/3rd Ave 212/759-9241....they never stopped selling Playboys. I used to stop in there at lunch time in the 70's. Had a pair of red patent leather low cut...even the shoe repairman could resole them when they wore out. Florsheim used to sell them..That's where I bought mine. You could wear them to be fly......, then go play ball without changing into your Cons or Pro-Keds. Anyway,..God Bless Ya'll and Merry Christmas.

Nothin' like a pair of British Walkers (aka Britishers). About five years ago I found someone that had some DEADSTOCK 80's Britishers and I copped a pair, not thinking I should have picked up a few pair. About 2-3 years ago I copped the newer Britishers (tan pair, black pair). Was just up on 125th today and Men's Walkers is closed - I have no idea where they moved to, but a brotha has got to cop a couple pair of Playboy's (not the GBX fugazy's).

OK I went over to Mike's Shoe Plaza just a little while ago and copped the brown suede Playboy shoes and they are having a sale right now; $180 a pair! I saw the brown suede and black suede, and burgundy leather, black leather, and I think olive green leather and all those were also $180 a pair. They've also got British Walkers for $50 a pair. Jump on it now!

Boy, you guys wiped us out of all the big sizes. 11,12, and 13's are pretty much all gone. Where are the 8-10 and a halfs??? I would like to just say it has been a pleasure seeing some of you come into the store and speaking with you guys on the phone.
MOOKEYCHASE - January 20, 2009 - Mark this comment as inappropriate
I Copped 2 pair back in November'05 in B-more the beige suede W/brown leather & blue suede W/brown leather. My only regret is the only tie-ups were the suede ones the Saxons(slip-ons) are the only leather that came back out.I remember we used to rock the blue,gray,burgundy,creme,green,black,white,two tone or solid wit the leather stripes or suede on the front. They had all colors to match your sheepskin w/ the matching hat & gloves or puff leather bombers wit the Lee flavor straight legs.We also rocked the Calvin K.flavors and the Bill Blass wit the suede or leather front sweaters or the Levis suits wit the turtle necks in B-more in the 80S.When I would go to Brooklyn to visit my cousins I would see dudes rockin the mock necks and sheepskins or bombers,and the Cortifiels wit the beaver fur Kangols the styles were similiar but not the same. But still yall did bang the Britishers and Playboys.I know Britishers were worn from B-more to Boston a East Coast thing for sure.I went and copped the all black suede tie-ups but thats all they had.I called Mikes about gettin the leather tie-up & tassles flavors back. Marc said he would have to see.Now that the company knows they will sell wit no probs,we should get the flavors back. Yo, just think the 80s had so much style, today these young cats don't have their own style everybody dresses the same from 13yrs.-45 but in the 80s we had our own style. Peace to my 80s old heads 1luv

Citi Shoes on 57th St. still sells Sanders shoes(Playboys) for about $220 a pair. Sanders shoes provides the best high end quality playboy shoes in the world. They are made in the U.K. and with a pair of your favorite jeans with your leather coat(from Orchard St) and matching leather or suede Sanders Shoes(Playboy). When I rock my leather or seude Sanders Shoes(Playboys) with a leather or suede coat that matches....I'm showing the young boyz how the old-skool playaz get down. The style is still hot and girlz from 25 to 55 love the style. Those were the days when dressing different separated you from the rest of the pack. I'm 47 years of age and my oldest son who is 21 just looks and steer and say...Dad you think you are Kool and I just look and say no! I know I'm kool ask your mom and your girl friend who wishes dressed with style and not like everyone else. The 80's player/b-boy style never just gets better with old skool playaz like up. Keep ballin playaz from the 80's and show the young boyz how its DONE.

Of course we all remember the cortofiel coats, the mock neck shirts, the shelltoe Adidas with the dingy shell, but does anyone remember Martin Brothers on Fordham Road back in the 70's when they sold the Lee jeans with the ONYX patch on the back pocket? There were two versions of the patch - one with big capital letters ONYX, and ONYX with the baseball bat (I think it was a baseball bat). Anyone else remember a brew called Neuweiler IX? Back in the day when it was all about Ballantine, Colt 45 (anyone remember the little bottles of Colt 45 shaped like a little barrel with the wooden handle?), and of course Olde English (aka Old Bing). Now I'm just waiting for the day if/when Bally comes out with the Aden and Alex shoes again. And what about a pair of AJ Lesters? The two-tone joints with the flap down the side of the pants that we used to iron open to show the color? Or how about the rain-drop AJ Lesters? BTW, a brohem was born and raised on 170th and Webster - the Boogie Down!

Yo I talked to Mark today at Mikes Shoe Plaza he said the company that makes Britishers is done! He said he told them how many they sold daily, how many orders they had waiting, how many orders they could pay for up front, they said they don't care they are thru wit the shoe. I'm kinda disscusted because I thought that by selling so many pair they would bring back the flavors and we could get it like it used to be but apparently not, damn. Man I love Britishers it was one of the slickest shoes ever made real talk.It still looks as good as it did 27 yrs ago even some young dudes wit style asked me where I got mine from. Man I was lookin forward to the Burgundy,the Gray, the Blue,all the leathear tie-ups wit the tassles and stripes on the front.I guess They don't care about us in the hood they got rich in the 80s.But damn they can get rich again yo dudes be stopping me in the streets in stores everywhere I go it's a 80s dude asking me where can he cop.So I hope something changes if not they got the R.J colts I might have to bang a pair for the look.

Being though I'm a true 80s old head wit a real love for the 80s and the 80s style I diligently went on a quest for the shoe all slick dudes from my decade used to rock Britishers or British Walkers.Sadly I report that after talking to Marc at Mike's I tried to locate the manufacturer of the shoe and I googled Original Britishers and came up with the owners named DNM LLC, in Jersey. My intentions were to talk to them about the shoe.Further probing led me to see it was really a company called Khadim Holdings in West Bengal, India that made the shoe so maybe the people in Jersey fell out wit the dudes in India and that's the reason they not gonna make the shoe no more cuz i can't imagine them turning down that loot. So I called the company that makes the RJ Colt brand of the shoe which is called Nashville and they say they have stopped making it also it shipped out the last order to Foot Action and Foot Locker in June 08. So it looks like if You didn't catch Mike or one of the other spots you might be out of luck so if you have some you better take good care unless some one else decides to make them they're officially dead!Thank God I got a few pairs! Peace 1luv Dee

Yo that's what I'm talkin bout Nat! Yo these companies out here in business to make money so I know if they had a clue how quick Mikes sold out and all the other spots thanks to this website they would even take custom orders. Something def had to happen between them and the people in Jersey. I'm in B-more and we had 'em in 05-06 even though they wasn't in the flavors we wanted they still sold and alot of dudes missed out and now want in. So even if we gotta send our money in or market them or whatever we gon make it happen. Yo I gotta have the all leather tie-ups wit tassels and bars on the front,tell me what shoe is slicker than the Britisher 25+ years later? PEACE Dee

Yo, I feel you Mook, everybody on this blog need to email this company and let them know that we want this shoe again. So let's get busy!...remember the hi-top british, I used to rock mad flavors, like the blue and beige suede w/ the velcro strap...Man we got to get it crackin'! I already picked up some mocks and I got a fresh pair of plaids that I'm gonna rock this spring and have all the brotha's Lol!

What up Nat, Damn son you got mocks? Yo I'm that type of dude I will cold bring back something from the day cuz yo if you think about it, like I said in my other post we was fresh in the 80s these kids today aint got no style that sets them apart.Our style, the sheepskins the bombers with the Britishers to match the kangols mocks chams Calvins Lees all-lat. I loved the spring and summer wit the Lee flavors and the matching BVD tees and boxers wit the Brits, that was strait hood and Hip-Hop. Back then you aint see everybody bangin that, like now these kids dressing like white boys wit all this American Eagle and Abercrombie and Hollister which aint nuffin wrong wit it but the hood had a defined look that said we street and REAL FRESH! Plus most of the stuff we used to rock still looks good today. Imma try to get to NY this weekend and cop some mocks I was on this website and I saw a Cortifiel wit a fur collar man this joint was so fresh plus I was in the mall I saw triple fat came back out wit a bomber but it wasn't leather, it was this new leather plastic look thats out right now but it bought back memories ya now? Yo I e mailed them dudes soon as I saw your post and good lookin cuz I see you as determined as I am to get these joints back poppin again. PEACE My Mellow, Dee
