Jugheads new boots

I remember a story where Jughead is wearing a new pair of boots. I think it was  Archie who was admiring them. Jughead explained the construction in great detail including how the leather was "chewed to a delightful softness by Eskimo maidens" and the heals were made from the hooves of Tibitian mountain goats. Is there anybody  who can help me locate this comic? Thanks!

Those things are stumpers, all right. I think I remember reading the story, but couldn't tell you the title or where (probably a reprint in a digest).

The quote you gave makes it sound more like an older (early-1970s if it's the one I'm thinking of) story by either Frank Doyle or Samm Schwartz, although if it's a longer story it could be one of those late-'90s ones written by Craig Boldman (it's his kind of plot, to have Jughead obsessing over some particular new quirk of his, for a single story) and drawn by Rex Lindsey. Without some other detail like whether the artist was Samm Schwartz or Rex Lindsey, it'd me tough for me to narrow it down further. Sorry I could't help.

Nostalgic

Thanks for taking the time to provide your insight. It would have been
from the 70s for certain. I like Jughead's take on things
and his sense of humor. Thanks again.

I can help you with this one since I have this one in my collection: it's simply called "Boots" (creative today, aren't we?), and it was originally published in JUGHEAD #115, Dec. 1964, indeed drawn by the great Samm Schwartz. GCD and digest printings of the story credit Jim Ruth for the story, but I think the great Frank Doyle actually wrote it, although it's possible Schwartz took Ruth's script and revised it a bit as he was prone to doing.

Wow, impressive. Every once in a while I come across a credit (almost always a writer) for someone who I'm totally unfamiliar with. In this case, a good example, Jim Ruth. Don't know a thing about him, and have only rarely seen his credit on a story. There have been maybe half-a-dozen or so names I've seen in credits that I'm entirely drawing a blank on, which indicates to me that their tenure with ACP must have been relatively brief. It isn't just the older stories, either... occasionally one pops up from the eighties or nineties stories. Actually, I'd probably be more likely to know who it was if it was an older story, at least if the writer had worked for other companies. And now that I think about it, I guess it's because ACP tended to employ writers (and sometimes artists) who didn't work for any of the larger comic publishers.

Thanks! About Ruth, I think he started writing for ACP in the mid-70s, and it seems he stopped writing for them in the later part of the 80s. His entry on the Jerry Bails "Who's Who" website doesn't list much for him unfortunately, other than that he had photos in an issue of MAD and that he apparently worked for the defunct Cartoonist Profiles magazine in the 80s.

I've also seen the name "Tom Ruth" show up a handful of times on GCD, don't know much about him either than that he apparently worked for Western Publishing for a while in the 60s and 70s, and apparently did scripts for Archie in the 60s. Don't know if he's related to Jim or not.
