Subject: Lil Abner boots

Written By: fburke on 09/04/04 at 4:18 pm

Somebody awhile ago was looking for Lil Abner boots.  I have looked for years and came across some made by JGEAR shoes and boots at website jgearusa.com under Thorogoode boots and they call them roofer boots.    http://www.jgearusa.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=JSAB&Product_Code=633&Category_Code=MB.    I don't know how to link an address but there it is.  They are a little different because the toe is a dark brown and when we were kids they were much lighter and looked better but thats the closest I ever came to finding them.  Check it out and see.  If you find any better please post  FXB

THE FIRST LIL ABNER SHOES I EVER SAW WERE MADE IN THE MID FIFTIES, THEY WERE ABOUT 20 INCHES LONG & 8 INCHES WIDE.  THE SIZING WAS DONE ON THE INSIDE. THEY WERE MADE OF A COMPOSITE MATERIAL & WERE GREY , YOU PAINTED THEM WHATEVER COLOR YOU WANTED. I THINK THEY WERE SOLD BY FLAGG BROTHERS.

This info is great.  In 2002 I was determined to find these boots (I wore them mostly every day back in high school) and received the following info:
"Yes, back in the early 80's we were owned by a shoe company called BATA out of Canada. You might want to try them."  This came from Weinbrenner Shoe Co.
Also:
"The Roofer style has to the best of my research never been manufactured in a women's size range or style.  There might be another style you are thinking about." 

Try:  Goldman Brothers, I believe in Hicksville, NY @ 516-931-0441 (this is where my trail ended since they only carried men's sizes starting at 6
