    image.jpg hello,
    I just purchased a pair of gray suede side zip up / front lace up boots. I can't find any information about them. Does anyone have any information or know where I can obtain some?
    Thank you,

    Please show us the label(s). There was a Mr. Jay in my northern NJ town and I *think* I have a handbag from there. I don't remember if they sold shoes, but will find out.

    That's so funny because I bought them at an estate sale in New Jersey! Thank you for your time! image.jpeg

    Do you have any more information about the era of the boots? Was the shop high end?

    Can you please also show a side photo that shows the shape of the heel, and a photo of the soles - that would help with dating. Thanks!

    Yes, that appears to be the same shoe-store logo (see photo here). Re whether it was high end, I honestly never went in there, but I am sure it was closer to high end than the other end. I think it was around in at least the 1960s and through the 1990s.

    Your boots are c. 1970/71 - Its great they aren't PVC or wet-look vinyl, which degrades.
