Timely Leather Facts
For Shoe Buyers
(By W. II. SMITH)
Mgi. MumifiiutiiiiMs Shoe Sloro
Kverett II. Dunbar, the "fololo-i
gist," in speaking of Iho life of leath
er fiom his extended experience In
the slum tiudc, snys: I
"Wo all make mtntakes. Tho shoo
nnd leather trade makes a hlg nils-)
take when It warrants any kind of
leather to wear for a certain period,
particularly when it warrants upper
leather not to break before the sole
is worn through. Hood outer soles,
such ns should be put Into men's
shoes today that retail from (3 So
to ?.r per pair, nru worth Hi", to 3D
cents per pair. With fair usage they
should last three mouths, for an average.
"Hut some persons aro harder on
their shoes thnn others. Take a per
son whose feet perspire freely. Hi'
will spoil any upper leather that Is
made in less than three months. Tho
ncld that escapes from his feet will
itiln the leather, it will harden It,
and make It crack.
"Then the dealer and the manu
facturers are fortunate If they es
cape without 'cracks' from the went-or.
"During my enreer as a custom
shoemaker I made k number or tests
of the life of leather, when worn In
shoes hy different persons. I made
two pairs of shoes, the uppers nl
which wero cut rrom the same
Frcncli calfskin. These shoes were
worn by 4two men, each of whom
have their shoes practically the satno
wear. One man kept Ills shoes look
ing good for nbout a jear. The up
pers were In particularly good con
dition at the end of that time. Hut
the uppers of tho other pair or shoes
were In very- oor condition, almost
r.o good, nt the end or three months.
The life wns gono from them and
they were-jitllt jiuil brittle. The per
spiration of the feet of one man con
tained uric ncld, nnd uric acid Is a
foe to leather. That is why one pair
of shoes wore three months. The
leet of the other mini perspired In u
normal manner nnd did not spoil his
"It Is a mistake to guarantee that
shoes will wear for a certain period.
That guarantee Invites unfair treat
ment of thn bhoes. Tho wearer of
shoes should feel u responsibility for
tiient. Kncli person should have moro
than one pair of shoes, cpeclally in
wltiur time When shoes nro wet
the should bo dried gradually, not
quit My, nnd In an oven. (Julck hoat
spoils leather. Oood enre of shoes In
winter lime will prolong their llto."
People should take thn snmfl care
or their feet as they do of their
hands. If the did, thu lift) or thu
hoelnau would be easier, nnd tho
Lomfort of thu wearer would be In
ereased 100 per cent.
Take, for Instance, patent leather.
The average Khoc-huvcr, as a. rule,
knows nothing of the tannage or this
leather and Its prepaiatlou for thu
market; nil they care for Is tho er
ica on the foot. Hut If It should,
is Is often the case, crack, they seem
to ihink that the shocmnn should
icctlO tin' brenk. They don't stop
to think that the varnish that rov
ers the natural leather is baked onto
the leather and that by bending the
foot the varnish and leather may not
bend at tho same time,' nnd the
crease formed receives an unusual
ctrnln, causing u crack.
The manufactuiers of this leath
er have no means of knowing whe
ther or not this leather will crack,
and the best they can do Is to get It
as near perfect as poJblblo, with thu
loiisequcnce that they do not guar
cilice It to tnelev" of shoes. They,
In turn, . i.. neu,ly perfect as
hileme w unit, it is then sent
to the retailer, who takes the entire
lesponslliillty upon shipment from
the factory. It, therefore, devolves
upon the retailer to sell them with
out a guarantee.
