That brings me back. Many's the pair of George Webbs I wore. The thing about George Webbs is that the were a good wide shoe. When often one with a wide foot would need to buy a size nine or even ten so as to get a wide enough fit, but you could wear a size eight in a George Webb. Very comfortable and strong.
And you often heard reference to how someone would say he would deal with a villian.
He'd say, "He'd need the end of a good size nine".
Well the phrase would often be reference to a kick of a good size nine George Webb.
Often the man who wore George Webbs also had a couple of pairs of what were called cattle mens boots.
Good luck all, C
P.s. This conversation is stretched over quite a few years now.
