Are You Hard on Shoes?
Many a woman thinks she is hard on
shoes when the fact of the matter is her
shoes have tricked her. If your shoes
go to pieces unreasonably soon it's
the fault of the maker. To meet
competition he has skimped and
scalped and substituted inferior for
honest materials till there's noth
ing left but looks.
$2.00 SHOE $2.50
is built to fit the foot snugly and comfortably,
as every good shoe should. It is built along
the most fash; ?nable lines, as you have a right
to expect. It wears like iron?which cannot
be said of some shoes at this price.
The parts that show are honest
on their face and give to the foot
a trim and stylish appearance.
The parts that take the strain
and wear?away inside and out
of si^ht?are just as thorough, just
as honest. Look up our dealer
in your town and let him tell you
how we can make such a good
shoe for the money.
