English shoemakers, Taylor & Lord and Churchs, used French shell cordovan. Bostonian and Bates imported shell cordovan. I wonder if the latter, too, were French shell. (Bates used Horween's shell, too. See p.6.) Anyone know of the French tannery's name?______________________________________________________________Thanks. Some catalogs are missing on AE's issuu. Is yours a 1960 spring & summer?Thanks. Here is Viking S1437 in Life Magazine,...

Yeah, L B Sheppard's v-cleats are hard to find. Probably the clear label of MADE IN U.S.A. was made after the 1970s to 1980s and no MADE IN U.S.A. label around the 1960s to 1970s.Interestingly, this Iron Age by Bostonian around the 1970s has the Hanover's (probably) FD mark. Clarks bought Hanover in 1977 and Bostonian in 1980.http://web.archive.org/web/20110120012406/http://www.clarksusa.com/eng/aboutus/aboutclarks.cfm

Otsuka began to import Church's in 1965. Shirai Toshio (1937-) says he bought Florsheim #93602 for 25,000 yen in the early 1960s at Futabaya (1897-) when his monthly salary was 16,000 yen. http://blog.goo.ne.jp/hito0815/e/2eebc52544a741e52f45965a58f240b5 The first specialty store Tomoeya of imported boots & luggage was founded in 1869, but I don't know whether they were Goodyear-welted. http://roudouundoumeiji.com/rekisi-3.html
I haven't heard outcasts manufactured all kinds of footwear. They manufactured leather soled sandals "Setta" and leather goods. Up until 1871, Dan Naoki (1823-1889, the 13th Dan zaemon), the head of outcasts in the Tokyo area, had some monopolies. One of them was the right to acquire dead cattle and horses for free and to use their hide and leather. 4 pairs of Setta were equivalent to an annual living cost for an adult individual. Outcasts were excluded from the society...
They are US 7 1/2 C. I think BB uses 0 instead of a dash (–).
I've been googling on the original of slip-ons, so-called Norwegian peasant shoes, and found out what looks like it, but Google Translate from Norwegian into English doesn't work at all! I'd like to know who wrote www.aurdalen.com and a relationship between Nils Tveranger (a founder of Aurlandskoen) and Gustav Nesbø. Could someone who can read Norwegian tell me whether they are mentioned?This picture is "Aurlandssko, Date: 1945 to 1960", a collection of National Library of...
