SOLD Rare 1920s authentic Roaring Twenties flapper galoshes boots or rubber overshoes on black cloth and rubber with the original Ball Brand box which are old store stock.
A wearable larger size of estimated 7 1/2 to 8. Never used!
These antique 1920s overshoes are black cloth with black rubber bottoms with a small heel height to wear over ones shoes in the 1920s.
They got the name because as seen in the illustration the flapper girls left the buckles open and they made a flapping noise. These vintage galoshes or boots were also rolled down for the younger modern set.
The original box and illustration call them Arctic Gaiters or galoshes.
These genuine flapper deco era 1922 boots are in rare mint condition. No holes or damage to the cloth upper or the rubber bottom. The buckles are in working order with no rust or damage.
The box is now completely damaged but it could be taped together.
I found these in an old general store that had closed in the early 60s and had been in business from the early 1900s. Unfortunately, the store had been broken into and all the shoes and boots were mismatched and broken up. This was the only pair I could find that were still intact.
Bottom length is 10".
Bottom width 3 1/2"
Heel height 1 1/2".
Ankles 9 1/2".
Remember these are to be Worn Over your 1920s low heel shoes.
Since these are original boots from the 1920s I do not recommend wearing them for everyday so as to use to preserve the history of them.
