Embekay vintage ice skates UK size 9 Leather skating boots Mobbs Bros c 1930s
A pair of vintage black leather ice skating boots. The blades are marked: " BRITON " James Howarth MADE IN SHEFFIELD." The boots are marked: EMBEKAY. Black. Leather soles. Leather lining. Felt and cloth padding on the tongues. Hard to be sure when they are made, but I would guess probably 1930s. Embekay was a Mobbs Bros brand of sporting footwear.
UK shoe size 9
The soles measure 11 1/2 inches x 3 3/4 inches on the outside.
Weight 1820g approx.
Vintage skates, in good condition, but not perfect and in need of a clean.
Please remember that these skates are probably nearly a century old, and do NOT conform to modern safety regulations.
They are NOT safe to wear on an ice rink, and are sold purely as collectors' items.
There are some scuffs and scratches on the leather, from normal use.
The metal skates appear to be replacements - there are holes visible on the soles, presumably where the original skates were fixed to the boots.
The metal blades are dirty and a bit rusty.
The laces look far more modern than the skating boots.
