Captoe dress boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281479092219
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.

1930s lace up field boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271227002741
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).

Talon Zip Ideal spats. 1937

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271221584141
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,

le measurement of 8-3/4″.  photo IMG_0001-1.jpg
