A catalogue to my exploration of the Vintage world.

Here’s the oldest pair of boots I own, these date to around 1900-10 and the style is called balmoral boots. They are quite rare because they fit like a modern 9.5-10 which is very large for this era, it leads me to assume that the people back then weren’t all as small as we think, the clothing that is left over is generally smaller because the larger clothing was taken by museums and costume places or was worn so much it fell apart. These boots are in great condition for their age and though the leather looks cracked its just worn but still very soft and pliable
