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.

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.
