A great pair of ladies early vintage brown leather high top, tall lace up boots, c. 1920s - 1930s, possibly slightly earlier; later Edwardian - teens.

These boots feature lots of detailing to uppers, with nice thick leather soles and stacked heels.  They are also fairly good sized, (see measurements above)  which is rather unusual to find in early vintage foot wear.

Due to the increase in popularity of outdoor activities during the first quarter of the 20th century, ie; walking, biking, sports, golf, hunting, riding and public action, such as marching for women's right to vote, ladies footwear was evolving.  In addition to the required house shoes, day wear and dancing slippers, etc., the need for more utilitarian styles of shoes and boots became necessary.

As utilitarian period footwear was used as described above, good condition examples remain somewhat difficult to find today, so we are pleased to offer these desirable boots.

They are in nice vintage estate condition.  Certainly they could benefit from a leather treatment such as mink oil or saddle soap, but overall they are quite good. The leather uppers are in very reasonable condition; still pliable, with no noted cracks, breaks or tears to the leather, just scuffs and some darkening in color here and there, as can be seen in the images.  The soles do show some expected wear / use, but not overly excessive and all the stitching remains intact.  There is a small area of white near the toe on one sole, (see last image) but this appears to be just a minor cosmetic issue.  The heels also some some wear, but again, not excessively.  The laces are likely original and showing wear; both laces could definitely stand to be replaced.  Interiors are lined in soft canvas, which does show some light general soiling, but no rips, tears, etc.   Foot beds are fully lined in matching brown leather that remains in very nice condition.

A desirable example of harder to find period footwear.
