1930s field boots

These vintage boots were made in the 1930s. They are a tall lace up field boot style, with speed hooks, the original metal tipped flat cotton laces, plain toes, nailed leather soles and rubber heels of a great design I haven’t seen before. They are a size 10 and measure 12″ heel to toe and 4-1/4″ at the widest point of the sole.

original 1930s working cowboy’s cowboy boots

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.
