The Gessler Brothers were shoe makers who had their own shoe shop, bearing their German name, Gessler Brothers. They valued the quality of shoes over anything.
The narrator used to go their shop from a young age with his father and seeing the unvarying boos in the window troubled him. For he knew that the Gessler brothers made only what was ordered, reaching nothing down and it seemed so inconceivable that what he made could ever have failed to fit. The question which always came in the young author’s mind was that why would he put those shoes there. There was no question of putting shoes which he had not worked himself.
