    James Dean personal leather boot. (ca. 1950-1955) Vintage original black leather western-style left foot boot with low heel, leather sole, and interior web pull straps. Size "9", which is known to be Dean's size. This was one of Dean's personal well-worn boots originally given to his friend and fellow actor, Jack Simmons, who played the part of "Cookie" in Rebel Without a Cause alongside Dean. In the Paul Alexander Dean bio, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, there is chapter dedicated to Simmons in which mention is made that Jack was in possession of this single Dean boot. The lining in the interior is loose, and the maker's name is illegible, although "Madison Avenue" can still be read, which coincides with Dean's Manhattan residence, where he lived while attending the Actor's studio. Upon Simmons death in October of 1994, this boot was part of Simmon's collection of Dean artifacts, which included photos, autographs, scripts and other ephemera associated with the late star, and was previously authenticated by the James Dean Foundation. Exhibiting age, wear, handling, some cracks, breaches and rubbing. In vintage fair to good condition. Comes with a COA.
