The More You Think
about our men's working shoeo the greater your appreciation of
the, wonderful value, good-fit features, long-wear quality, high
grade finish and good appearance in tvery pair. Then you do''
not wonder at our large trade there's a reason for it. -No
man, whether poor or comfortably fixed, can afford to
'pay for shoes and have them rip and tear the very first time he
gets thqm wet. He would rather pay more and get quality.
Shoes cost more now to build than ever before; hence there
mutt be a sacrifice somewhere. We positively will not cut out
quality In our stock and tell a man "This is tho same shoe at
the same price." Full value here in every sale.
