Banister Shoes - Page 2

post #16 of 21

Dear Mr. Banister, IMG_3524.JPG 1,102k .JPG file


Thank you for your reply.

My husband has a pair of Banister shoes.

I am an admirer of it. The soles are very thick - thicker than the ones made today. The Goodyear Neolite heel shows little wear.

It is a pair of shoes of the finest quality - no longer made or matched today, even by Italian made brands.

It is something to be truly proud of.

I will try to attach some photos for your daughter.

Banister was THE shoe in the city of St Louis, if you were'nt  wareing you may as well be barefoot, GREAT styles and very well made, I wish I could find a shoe today I liked like my BANISTERS.

KoolKatt, Very nice article. Don't know if I knew you, but I'm from St.Louis and around that same era. A 1970 Beaumont High graduate. I wore the Banister shoes and still wear the Knox hats (Levine's). Was a "great" shoe. (Wolfe's). Back then "The Brothas" from "The Lou"had great style. Those were the days.

Hi - I have an old wooden tool of some sort that has the James A. Banister Co. logo on it.  I was wondering if you or perhaps someone in your family might be able to identify what it is.  Thanks - -
