    I saw this ad some time back and wanted this pair of boots. I was able to make this close estimate to the ones in this ad from 1935. I finished these up some time back and have worn them quite a fair amount. I know the cats paw brand heel and builtrite sole are not period correct and should be leather but I cheated a bit.
    I had to alter a last for this project also. I was going to go with the toe, heal and shovel plate that are pictured for options until IO went with a rubber sole, I think I will make a new pair some day and get these options on with a leather sole, however I don't see these wearing out soon.
    turned out pretty swell I think
