I picked up these Red Wing boots at an estate sale a while back, but C was too narrow for me to wear so i'm thinking of getting rid of them.
I've worn Red Wings daily for about 15 years...i've been through about 15 used or vintage pairs of different types. I've never come across any quite like these so I was wondering if they're anything special.

The patina is the richest i've seen in Red Wing leather...dark red.
They seem delicate compared to old Irish Setters i've had....more dressy.
They have the Neolite and Armor-tred neoprene soles.
There is no tag on the inside tongue like most old Red Wings and doesn't look like there was.
The insoles have a logo that's hard to make out but looks like hands shaking.

are these early 50's era? any idea of a value?
if i'm in the wrong forum for this type of thing please let me know.

thanks,
spit

I got my red wings in college, we just put a dark towel underneath us.
