Picker friend of mine came across these goggles. Wondering if they are pilot/aircrew goggles
WW2 Pilot goggles?

The shape of the frames seems similear to Russian or private purchase pilot goggles that I have seen on eBay. However, the strap connecting the two lenses is different from what I think is normally found on pilots goggles and is more like the ski goggles from WW2 so, while I could definitely be wrong, I would bet that they serve some other use other then pilot goggles.

Not issue. Several excellent reference books out there.
Agree with USARV72
THese are typically vintage commercial safety and dust goggles

Those look very similar to a type of goggle claimed to be used by the Luftwaffe or Mechanized Units by sellers. Not sure on the authenticity of their claims but they looks about 90% the same as what you've got there

Yours look just like these, only used. I can see the word "Chicago" on the box, so US, but commercial wind, dust goggles, not military and not flying goggles.
