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.

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.
