A tiny pair of football boots that hung in a family car for over 60 years have been restored after their owner passed away.

The handmade boots were bought for Ron Nevill by his wife to celebrate Tottenham winning the double in 1961 and were hung in his car ever since.

Epping Forest Guardian:

After Ron died last year his son Barry did not want to throw family memories away.

However, the years had got to them and they were in a terrible state.

Epping Forest Guardian:

Barry took the boots to Epping Shoe Repairs in High Street, Epping, who stitched them back together.

Epping Forest Guardian:

Barry said the repair work was as good as anything on the Repair Shop.

“I can’t thank them enough, real craftmanship is not dead” he said.
