    It was a nice outfit M-o-M but I believe you were a little late and the poll was running.

    Thanks for the support, guys. I am happy with fifth in that esteemed company:)

    I was a mere handful of hours behind time, when most of the US was asleep. And some other guy who entered out of time got his entry counted. Swizz, I say!

    Did any of you guys wear 5 eyelet boots? old steel toes seem quite common in this configuration.

    I can't remember how many laceholes my first pair of cherry reds had, but they were comparatively short.

    52BEF44C-5BE1-434F-9530-FC5CD939A7C1.jpeg My dad had a pair of these “ joe ‘awkins boots in the early 70s. As I got older ( and he had them issued for a number of years).
    Anybody know who made them?
