Sjef....the only time an airman would need such boots would be if he crash-landed in a swamp!! :lol:

I have looked at alot of these boots over the years and do not remember ever seeing a sole pattern that looked like this linked chain. Also the military boots have a square cut heel and yours look beveled. Check these boots closely for military markings. A UV light might help. This same style boot is still being made today by many companies, probably the best known is L. L. Bean.

That sole has been an LL Bean hallmark for years!
