These were the big score of this past month's Rose Bowl Flea market. Based on the shape, hardware, and soft toes, I'm guessing they're early 1950's. There's evidence of atleast two resoling jobs, and they are completely unbranded otherwise at this point.... Any other tags or printing having long since fallen off. A well respected vintage collector buddy of mine guessed they may be old Red Wing....

Anywho.... They fit me, they're fuckin rad, and they haven't fallen completely apart yet! What a grail find. Cheers.
