    I was able to bag a pair of late 1940's/early 50's Thorogood workboots on Ebay. They were deadstock and are basically brand new. Look very much like WWII issue ankle high dress shoes, except these have cork soles. I normally take an 8E or 8 1/2E, this pair is 8D yet they're only slightly firm...
