"Tough" is the only word that can properly describe this Shoe. The thick resilient Genuine Vulcanized Crepe Sole will stand the utmost in hardest wear and abuse. The extra heavy duck upper, white or suntan, is tough too, and is backed up with a drill lining. Special inner sole for foot comfort. Black rubber and fabric trimming along eyelets, instep stay, ankle guard, full length back stay. Black rubber ribbed toe cap. Nickeled eyelets.
