Hi and welcome to my auction.
You are bidding on an amazingly comfortable pair of Size 8 WW2 Brown Para Boots.
These are great for anyone into re-enactments as they have all the character you need to be authentic.
Or if you are just looking for that early 20th century explorer look then these are ideal!
When I bought them they were labelled as WW2 American Para boots though there was no proof but if you look at the photos you can see the vintage nature of the sole and stitching along with the rest of the boot lends itself to these being proper vintage!.
The tongue is sewn in all the way to the top as you would find in a quality boot and it is padded with horse hair, again indicating the age.
Near the top of each tongue there is a number picked out in dot holes 42 6 37570. The 0 could possibly be a Q or a G
The lacing system is again a great indication of the age of these boots with the letters STOCKO.
These are very special and I only part with them as they are most definitely a size 8 and as such just a smidge small for me though I have worn them.
Grab yourself something stylish and historic all in one go!
