The truth about
Selz Royal Blue Shoes
We can tell truth about Selz Royal Blue Shoes,
and be sure it is the truth.
They're made of the kind of leather you'd pick out
for yourself if you knew all about leather; in a way
you'd make 'em if you knew how.
We can fit your feet with Selx Royal Blue Shoes
better than you're used to; they will wear longer
than you're used to, and be good looking as long
as you wear them.
