Original 1944 Dated British Army Officer's Field Boots - Size 7M

Code: 55352

SOLD

A good 1944 dated example of the British officers' double buckle boots made by 'K BOOT' in a size 7M.

This pattern of boot was designed to be worn in place of ankle boots and gaiters by combining the two and was popular with officers in the Normandy Campaign and throughout the rest of the war. They are made from a brown coloured leather which has a pebbled finish. They feature a Moc-Toe which is sometimes referred to as an 'apron front'. The front of the boots fasten with laces which appear to be the originals whilst the top closes with a leather section which features two belts and buckles each. The original leather soles are still present and they retain original period metal toe and heel plates. 

inside the boots are clearly marked with the 1944 date and maker's name of 'Norvic' is also present. The soles are stamped with the size of 7M as well as the War Department broad arrow marking. 

The boots are in good condition and display very well. There are some signs of wear and age but on the whole they appear to be fairly sound. They are worn and far from perfect but very original. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that they are a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small flaws commensurate with age. 

A good original pair of wartime officer's boots which are nicely marked.
