HERE'S THAT FAMOUS
WOLVERINE WORK SHOE!
; ; , ,
it wears a
stays soft and
VOU'VE probably read the
. advertisements about these
famous Wolverine Work Shoes in
your favorite farm magazine. Now
we've secured a stock of Wolverines
in .all styles, ankle lengths to knee
highs. And we invite every work
hoe wearer to come in and tee
the perfect work shoe.
We've investigated and tested
ibis line and every word they
ay about Wolverines is true. They
do dry soft alter soaking and stay
oft despite all weather conditions.
The uppers are almost Impossible
to rip and tear, for the 4-pIy
thread is sewed deep into the sur
face. The uppers are alio scuff
proof and stand up longer against
acids than any work shoe we
know. Last and equally important,
Wolverines are made of Shell
Cordovan Horsehide a leather
that outwears any other work shoe
You'll be under no obligation
if you wish to drop in and ex
amine a pair. And once you try
Wolverines, yon'll never switch to
any other grade of work shoe.
