Solid Leather, Strongly Put Togethei
The heels, soles, and counters—the hidden but vital parts ot
our shoes—are made of solid leather, strongly put together. Good,
honest wear is built into each pair.
In each style—the finest footwear and the heavier shoes for every-
day vise—we put the maximum value at the minimum price, giving you a lull
hundred cents in every dollar, while furnishing extra good shoe:’.—
High in Quality; Low in Price.
We challenge the shoe world on value and price, and stand squarel” 1
each sale with a “money-back" warrant of quality.
A solid leather shoe, when well wrorn, is easy to repair and greatly increase the
Wear. This will make a great difference in the cost of shoes for your family each year
