This piece is in good condition; there is a 2.25" x 1.75" hole in the left sole and a 1" x 1" hole in the right sole. There is some minor ethnographic wear and soiling. The leather is soft and flexible. The soles are made of stiff hide. Acquired from a private collection in Texas. Signed "Jannis Day" on interior. The owner has authorized us to lower the price from $675 to $600. This is a wonderful collecting opportunity.
