Help with Boots please


Recommended Posts

These boots were part of a mixed lot of items I bought a while back. I have researched them some but haven't come to any conclusion on what they are specifically. I'm hoping someone here could help me out. Unless they are super awesome, I want to eventually sell them but can't begin to start until I know what I have. They are taking up valuable helmet space. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

Look like the post WW2 combat boot.

 

I would say they were resoled at some point.

Nice. I have a pair like the top left. They were from an estate sale. I got the named stenciled M1 liner to go with them. It made a nice display. I think these belonged to ground crew air soldier who was stationed in Burma towards the end of the war. He may have stayed in and got them post war. Thanks for the pics and the comment. Nice boots!

They are the Russet Lace-up Combat Boots adopted by the Army in 1948 to replace all other field footwear, including the Service Shoes, Parachute Jumper Boots and "double buckle" Combat Service Boots. As doyler said, they have been resoled.
