Good Shoes The Brockton lines of men's shoes are well worth a trial. Quit trying questionable makes. Shoddy shoes and poor leather are often found, but never here. Many satisfied customers testify to the splendid wear of our men's line. Do you know it takes six to eight months to tan leather? Much leather is preserved or embalmed in a process requiring but two or three weeks. These leathers, owing to the chemicals used, are injurious to the feet. Shoes made from it do not hold their shape or wear. Reliable footwear has a value just the same as a gold dollar and it is very rarely you can obtain good shoes for less than $4.00 and up. We do have out-of-date styles at reduced prices. Sample shoes are always in si/e 7B men's and 4A or B in Women's and are usually slightly damaged. Factory damaged and mismated shoes are also sold at a reduction. Comfort, wear and style in footwear command their price. If you want to gamble, play poker. It's more fun and you have a run for your money. Don't gamble in buying your shoes. You haven't any chance to win and the misery of ill-fitting shoes destroys the fun of the risk.
