This vintage pair of boots is typical of dress boots of the 1920s, although the heels and overall construction make me think they were manufactured in the 1940s. They remained popular at that point with older, more conservative markets. They are made of black leather with five eyelets and four speed hooks. They have black flat cotton laces, and a nice curve to the back seam. The boots have Vulcan rubber heels and a leather sole.
These boots were made in England in the 1980s by a company named “Celebrity”. They are a captoe style, with functional buckles on the outsides. They have holes for studs or jewels.
These vintage boots were made in the 1920s or 1930s. They are a men’s size 7, and are a tall lace up field boot style. This style was popular with hunters and workmen during this period. They have 18 eyelets, and are a rare wingtip style. They have roamer brand rubber soles, long since cracked, and Ritz brand heels. The leather has been conditioned and while it does show wear, is still supple. The soles will definitely need to be replaced if these are to be worn. They measure 11-1/4″ heel to toe (outsole).
These vintage spats were made in 1937 by the short lived company “Ideal Spats”. They were made shortly after Hookless re-organised into Talon, so while the puller has the traditional Hookless shape, it is only marked with the Talon name. The bottom of the stopbox is marked I7. The stopbox is of the sunburst “deco” design, and the slider mirrors the deco rays. The zipper is equipped with a rau snap, which secures the pull to the leather. The spats are a small size,
These vintage shoes were made in the 1960s. They are marked Ritchie DeLuxe and Genesco. They are a cap toe winklepicker design, with extremely pointed toes and a cuban heel. They have leather soles and nailed heels. The heel lining on the right shoe is a bit loose, and there is a small punch through the leather in that shoe, both visible in the shot showing the text inside the shoe. They are stamped a size 8D on the footbed. From the amount of wear on these, I’d say they were tried on once or twice, but never actually worn, as even all the text on the sole is legible. The sole measures 12″ heel to toe, and 4″ at the widest part.
