0.00

Without a doubt the rarest of the rare military issue boot, and certainly one of the most stylish. A brief history: ”These were made in the 1950's and are the US Army's first attempt at a modern jungle boot. The boots are basically WWII Double Buckle boots that have been redesigned with canvas parts for tropical climates. The boots are often seen worn by early advisers who departed for Vietnam from Okinawa, hence the name. At this point, the lug soles were still stitched to the body of the boot. “ Some signs of wear/ repairs on soles but overall in beautiful condition. Great looking pliable leather and canvas, original Goodyear LUG soles. A very high quality construction.

Stamped 1950 Size 10 1/2
12.5" long, 4 1/4" at the widest point of the sole.
