Lawrence Boots 1958-73

A Word From Our SponsorsLawrence is probably not a boot manufacturer brand that will be strongly remembered even by our older readers. Like many of the smaller sportswear companies we feature as part of the regular A Word From Our Sponsors feature, Lawrence’s heyday came in the 1950s and 60s before their market share was gradually squeezed by the growing clout of the majors.

Lawrence did not boast many notable boot contracts, but did benefit from some well-chosen individual endorsements featuring Tom Finney, Matt Busby and Jimmy Greaves. Examples of these and other Lawrence ads from the 50s through to the 70s feature in our gallery.
