Vintage Rubber Boots, Deadstock, from JunqueGypsy.Etsy.com. REDUCED from 25.These are very cool! From the deadstock of a department store which was open in the 1940-50's, boxes and boxes of various styles and sizes of black gum rubber overshoes, made in USA, were found in a small town main street building about to be remodeled. Gum rubber is not even used in today's production of poly-plastic boots.This listing is for a pair of woman's or kid's pull-on black rubber ankle high overshoes. They are ankle height, with very streamlined design. They have pointed toes and sleek lines around ankle. Soft and pliable black rubber, these have never been worn and were still in the original box with tissue paper. The bottoms have no slip ridges.Bottom is marked MADE IN USA size 2 (don't pay attention to this hard to figure out vintage size--check the measurements), with a logo SNL and LACROSSE . A size 5.5-6 women's shoe fits inside these. Or, you could wear them without shoes to slog around in the spring rains and mud.Measurements: 10 in long, 4 in wide, measured with tape measure on bottom of sole.I wear 8-8.5 USA woman's size, and I can wear these without shoes, just socks.***These are the only pair of boots of this style that came in the deadstock boxes. And FULL DISCLOSURE: one of the boots has a tiny .5 inch spot at the side of the toe where the seam does not seal. These have never been worn, so that must be a factory flaw. Husband says it could be sealed with rubber patch kit, but I will leave that up to buyer. See last picture, and zoom in for a good look. They are priced accordingly.Other styles listed are herehttp://www.999999999/shop/junquegypsy/search?search_query=rubber+boots&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search****I have many pairs of black gum rubber boots with some additional sizes and styles from this deadstock store inventory find. Contact me if you would like me to check for specific sizes/styles for future listing or custom order. Some of these are flat bottomed, some are zipper closed, and a few are ankle pull over shoe type. The largest size of all these styles is marked 5.5 and most are much smaller: 1.5-5 sized. Some of these say Convex on the box. The heeled model is listed herehttp://www.999999999/listing/66210544/granny-galoshes-boots-rubber-deadstock?ga_search_query=heel%2Bgaloshes&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5556085These would make a great prop. I also have a big box of mismatched singles. Figured I'd eventually list the singles for decorator or altered art purposes. Contact me if you are interested in that possibility.
