You can t tell a good shoe from a poor one, very few stores sell
the right sort. If you know M. & K. clothing you ought to know what to ex
pect of us in shoes. We don't buy shoes of every Tom, Dick and Harry, but
every shoe we sell is made especially for us by reputable manufacturers, and
the standard is fixed high enough to warrant us in stamping our M. & K. cn
This means that we stand back of every pair. It also means
that you can deal with us with your eyes closed. It goes without saying that
we carry all the dependable grades and fashionable shapes. A larger stock
than you would take time to look at. More than you'Jl find in any two
stores, and decidedly lower in price.
Wear M. & K. Shoes.
