Hello everyone welcome back to lovestodream
Facts:
Here a little about buster brown shoes
Child's Buster Brown lace-up shoes, c.1905
It is a rare treat for the collector to find a pair of children's shoes from 100 years ago in such excellent condition. Everyday shoes like these were generally worn out and replaced as needed. Ironically, they are rarer today than fine period shoes, which were often saved.
The Brown Shoe Company was founded in 1878 by George Warren Brown. He believed St. Louis could become an important center for shoe manufacturing. His small company gained national prominence after acquiring the rights to the name of the popular comic strip, Buster Brown, from its creator at a meeting at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904.
Buster Brown, the mischievous cartoon character, and his dog Tige were well known to children of all ages; and to their mothers, who purchased shoes for them. This brilliant marketing move gave instant name recognition to Buster Brown shoes.
The picture below is a period advertisement for Buster Brown shoes.

Quote:
By~Victor Hugo romantic Poet 1802-1885
I met in the street a very poor young man was in love.
His hat was old,his coat wore,his cloak was out at the elbows,
The water passed throught his (shoes) -and the stars
throught his soul.
Here a funny quote:By~ John J.Plomp
The one thing children wear out faster than (shoes) is
parents.
