These vintage boots were made between about 1952 and 1955 by Star Brand shoes. They are plain toes, with Cats Paw rubber soles and Light Tread heels. They are stamped inside “Boltan Insole”, and have leather laces.
These vintage boots were made in the 1930s, and have short shafts with a deeply scalloped top cut. They have leather soles and narrow, tall, nailed leather heels. While the flashy boots of the ’30s-’50s survive, the plainer, workingman’s boots like this are extremely hard to come by. They measure 12″ heel to toe, 4″ at the widest point. While the leather isn’t cracked, it would take some work to get these back into wearable condition.
