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.
