Here is the newest shoe from the leather factory, the astonishing Gold Bond, made in Dept 474, under the direction of Foreman Charles Dawson.

These shoes, made in both men’s and women’s styles, are the latest in feather-light construction. They are made in brushed pigskin with a specially light-weight microcellular rubber sole. In addition to lack of weight (which does not take from the strength of their construction), Gold Bond shoes have several other unique features. They are rain repellant and can be cleaned instantly, when dry, with a stiff brush.

See the special Gold Bond displays in British Bata stores.

Men’s designs cost 59s. 11d and women’s 49s. 11d.
