He says this boot is probably a 'Homer' from Sundry Brickworks Auckland.

More info from Manos:
'The boot is most likely to be made by Sundry brick works, because at the time they made them for celebrations of the birth of a child. The child's name was then scratched into the sole. This particular boot has the initials WL scratched into the bottom.
