    Stoked about this estate sale find. I need help with any info. You know you find something in the box and you think it would be easy...not with these. I cannot find anything about the Manufacturer or year. The original price tag is still on the box and is 4.95. So my guess is 20s but I am not sure goodyear was doing shoe parts until the 30s. They have never been worn and besides the cracking sole rubber, I would say they are in museum quality. I have my shoes down pat down to the 60s but this is over my knowledge base. Anyone that would like to weigh in, be my guest.

      I saw that but the company was in St Paul Mn. I have found the Freeman-Thompson shoe company in St Paul But no real info. Not sure if the joint name would have come first or later on, the box and shoe only says thompson.

      There is also mention of the Thompson Shoe Co in Montreal:

      What impressed me with that advert above though was the picture of a very similar shoe.

      Yes they do favor in appearance. This one is turning out to be a good One. I have been digging for 4 hours now.
