Random Ad - Barratt Shoes 1940's

A WWII advert for Barratt shoes. A difficult time for companies to advertise in the traditional way (buy now or else!). This advert is  asking the customers not to buy Barratt’s shoes (or anyone else’s) because the leather is needed for War use. So why advertise at all? I think they must be trying to store up public goodwill for after the War.
