A real mint example of the arctic overshoes?


Recommended Posts

They look identical to an unissued pair I have. Off the top of my head mine are made by the American Rubber Co. As for Endicott-Johnson, I have encountered that name before in the course of my collecting. I probably have or had a piece of kit bearing that name.

Do you think it's original?

I bought a pair of Canadian marked over shoes exactly the same as the American one's but I only noticed that the buckle set on each boot clip over the same to the left. Do I have two left boots? Did they ever wear mixed boots? The reason I asked is someone told me that there are no left or right boots and they wore a mixed set ie either boot of the same size will fit left or right and that's how they wore them. Personally I would assume this to be wrong but in this game you can learn something new.

BC312, These boots had right and left boots. I think you have two boots of the same side like you have theorized.
