1960s flat toe Whites boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401069102026

These boots were bought in the 1960s for a driller with the Anaconda Mining Company of Montana.  They are a size 14AA, have a soft toe and measure 13-1/4″ by 4-3/4″, and 9-1/2″ bottom of the sole to top of the shaft. Though the owner’s daughter in law referred to them as Whites, and the pattern is identical to Whites of that period, there are no longer any visible brand markings on these.

Reindeer fur boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272050096963

These vintage boots are European, made in the 1930s-1940s.  I was sold they were reindeer fur when I bought them, and the look consistent with that to me.  They have pegged leather soles and rubber covered heels.  The square toe looks like ski boots of the period, but they do not have the grooved heel sides that I generally associate with that style.  The sole measures 12-1/2″ long and  4-7/16″ wide.
