Do they have government markings inside. Keep in mind that pacs like this were (and still are) made by companies like LL Bean, Sorel, etc.

I'll have to go with Tom. There are significant departures from WWII U.S. Quartermaster contract production shoe pacs. The differences, and the "Canada" marking would certainly indicate not a wartime U.S. issue item. Jack

If they are Canada marked, Sorel is a likely maker. Been making them for a gazillion years.
