Hemingway’s son approves new footwear line

BOZEMAN, Mont. – The 82-year-old son of writer Ernest Hemingway says his famous father would approve of a new line of shoes named after the Pulitzer and Nobel prize-winning author that are divided into angler, literary and sportsman collections.

Bozeman resident Patrick Hemingway tried on a pair of loafers Friday at Schnee’s Boots and Shoes and says the best part is he can wear them without socks, and that his father also hated socks.

Thomas Raymond & Co. is launching the Hemingway line of men’s footwear and plans to distribute them to 12 different retailers around the U.S. this fall.

The Hemingway shoes are made in El Salvador using bison and calf hide and cost from $150 to $235.

Patrick Hemingway says a lot of celebrity endorsements are phony but not this one.
