Vintage Pair of 'Kikorf' Leather Football Boots.
A pair of size 10 leather boots in very good condition. Stamped on the ankle area of the boots is 'Kikorf, F. H. W Regd, "Continental"'. The toe area on the boots are made of hardened leather, as it was the normal play to toe-kick the football rather than use the instep as in today's game. The six studs on each sole are formed by layers of cylindrical leather discs fastened by three nails. The boots have never been worn, have extra zigzag stitching on the sides and come with 'Paton's Professional' laces still in the paper wrapping.
