Remember the old skates that you slipped on over your shoes, buckled to your ankles and rolled off into the sunset with? Well these are those type of skates. This pair is very heavy and made of metal. They are painted blue and orange with yellow wheels. Made by Globe Skate Corp. in 1966. The patent number (3,279,808) is on the top of the skate, which made them very easy to date. Wouldn't these be great to display or even use? They don't make them like this anymore. There are eight size adjustments that can be made to the skate - Size is unknown, but definitely child to teen. Length is anywhere from 8.25" to 10.75" depending on how they are adjusted. Some moderate paint loss, rust and scratches are to be expected. The wheels are worn and pitted, and the orange stopper on front shows moderate wear. The leather straps are cracked and dry and the buckles are rusty. Skates can be adjusted by loosening the wing bolts, which I was able to do with my hands, but a pair of pliers might work best for tightening them.
