Shoe & boot manufacturing in Brazil was very popular in the last half of the 70's and all through the 80's. Here's a bit of interesting info, I found about Acme -
In the 1980s, the Tennessee boot companies came under significant labor organizing pressures from the International Rubber Workers and other unions. At the same time, the removal of protective U.S. shoe tariffs opened the U.S. market to low cost footwear from Brazil, Mexico and the Far East, while at the same time, EPA regulations began to severely damage the fortunes of leather tanners in the U.S. The domestic boot manufacturers, faced with rapidly rising material costs, labor issues, and a flood of low priced import competition quickly scaled back operations, and by the late 1980s, most were a shadow of their former selves.

Here's the link i found if you'd like to read more about Acme Boots - http://ask.metafilter.com/121067/How-do-I-find-out-more-about-the-Texas-Brand-Boot-Company

brand - Acme, tag reads - Genuine Leather Uppers, Balance Man Made, Made in Brazil, tagged size 7 M, and fit like a women's 8 to 8.5.

Please let me know if you have any questions and would be happy to send additional pics. In order to avoid returns, I've tried to describe the item as accurately as possible. But will gladly accept a return for any misrepresentation within 14 days after it's been delivered - buyer pays return shipping.

In most cases, your purchase will ship the following day after I've received your payment.

International shipping will be sent Priority. Estimated arrival time is approximately 10 - 30 business days, in most cases, but because of customs, they can vary quite a bit from country to country. And this does not include additional time spent in customs. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
