They have also been stored correctly. The leather retains an aged patina that would have been spoiled using black boot polish, however, if you desire that'shiny look' they would buff up a treat. Leather soles are very good. They also appear to have the original, rubber heels manufactured by BERSON of Germany. My husband took them in to a cobbler's shop for an opinion (no work carried out) and the gentleman said they were remarkable for their age and would probably last another 70 years.
