During WW2, leggings were as distinctive a feature of the G.I's appearance as the M-1 helmet. Here we have three typical variations on that theme.

 

First, with regular rough-out service shoes.

Ian, that is a nice display and also good reference for newer collectors / reenactors.

 

If you still have all 3 of those put together can you add another photo please. I would like to see a side view of all 3 together to compare lace patterns, height of leggings, etc. Thanks, if possible.

Thanks Johan. Don't they say that there's one part of a woman's brain which thinks about shoes 24/7?!

Ian, Thanks for posting these! Maybe you, Johan, me and a few others could put together a reference on footwear? I believe WWI Nerd started a thread on WWI footwear that was incredible, but I don't think it was ever added as a reference. What do you think?
