1930s field boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272013552822
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

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400938388587
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.

They have the early 1933 patent arch support design, used c.1934 to 1949, seven eyelets, a pointy perforated captoe, closed lacing and seven eyelets. An update on the air cushioned Massagic arch support was designed in 1945 and rolled out in mid 1949, combined with period adverting, providing a solid latest date of production for these. They have flat cotton laces, channeled leather soles and BF Goodrich vogue heels.
