    I'm not so familiar with American shoes (particular from a time before my interest in shoes begun), but I believe Hanover shoes were made by Bostonian and both brands are no more. (Yes, Bostonian still exists; but it's only a marketing tool for imported cardboard rubbish.)
    There was a time when Bostonian produced shell cordovan shoes.

    Yes, you can still find both brands occasionally on eBay, and I believe that's where you've come across them.
