"Safe Shoes

Style GM

This comfortable and dressy Oxford is made of Sorosis kid with front and lip of patent leather. Its heel is 1 1/2 inches high.

Sorosis Safe Shoes are so fashioned that they cannot injure the feet that wear them. Some shoes are really dangerous because they do not conform to natural lines of normal feet but do conform to eccentric lines and oddities of shape that happen to be considered highly fashionable.

The Sorosis Shoe Establishment produces many millions of the most intelligently made Safe Shoes and it also produces the most distinctly fashionable shoes that are in the market."
