wear any shoe you ever wore, try this
"Hard Wear in Every Pair"
It is made of soft, pliable chrome tanned waterproof leather, the finest
and most durable of all leather for heavy wear. "
It has two full soles. These soles are made of overweight steer hide
the toughest leather made and are secured by Puritan stitch and two
rows of standard screws.
It has a heavy, full gussett (see illustration) that will not permit dirt
to get in through the lacing. The pull strap is leather, sewed with
waxed flax thread, double stitch saddle seam and the counter is sewed
in in fact every part of this shoe is built to stand hard wear. Comes
in either plain toe or tip and in black or tan leather.
We believe this shoe will last you much longer than six months, but
we will guarantee that you get at least six months' wear and satisfac
tion. If you do not, bring them back and we will give you a new pair
