Vintage Pair of 'Cert' Leather Football Boots.
A pair of size 7 unused leather boots in excellent condition. Stamped on the sole with the size 'Jen, Regd., It's a Cert!' also sewn on to the tongue of the left boot is a cloth 'THE CERT Regd' trade label. The toe area on the boots are made of hardened leather with an extra leather strap behind. The six studs on each sole are formed by layers of cylindrical leather discs fastened by three nails. The boots have never been worn and come in a 'Cert' cardboard box (the size stated here is 8 so has been mixed up at some stage) with a pair of 'Paton's Professional' laces still in the paper wrapping.
