Vintage Leather Football Boots.
A pair of used black and white leather football boots. The toe area on the boots is 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 sole of the boots are fitted with 6 leather studs, each stud is formed by layers of leather cylindrical discs fastened to the sole of the boot by three nails. Nice decorative size 7 football boots from the early 1950's.
