HOMEFRONT Ladies Rubber Overshoes

Post by lt.luke » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:43 pm

I think these are restriction period Ladies' Overshoes. The maker is Endicott Johnson Corp. The tag, a bit curled, but in VERY nice shape, crisply readable, is FORM 295 reads:

"DEFENSE" QUALITY
ENDICOTT JOHNSON CORP.
Johnson City, N.Y.

To help conserve rubber, a minimum amount of crude rubber is used in this product.
Except for workmanship, usual guarantees do not apply.

To get maximum wear--
1--wash rubber surface to remove dirt, fats, oils or acids after use.
2-- Dry out linings under normal temperature before putting away.
3-- Store in a cool, dry place away from direct light.

After duration, this trade-mark --PARACORD--
will again be the Sign of Extra Quality and Outstanding Features

Shoes are NOS, or appear so, with very supple, pliable rubber, clean soft fleece type lining, 2 snaps per shoe in perfect working condition. They are size 1 1/2, so they might be best suited for display rather than use.

Tag can be removed for shipping at buyers request, the paperclip holding it in place is clean, and could be new. There is no box, but they will be packed carefully for shipping. Overseas shipping OK, but I'll take a little extra care packing these, so any interested buyer should understand that they may cost a little more than usual.

$50 plus shipping.
