1951 ARMY ISSUE SERVICE BOOTS KOREA WAR ERA

Today is a very cool pair of 1951 Korea War Vintage Army Service Boots
Dead Stock, un issued!    GoodYear Wingfoot 
 Here's what they looked like when I got them.   Old, dry but in perfect shape.
 Look at those soles.   Never once worn.
 Made by the Knipe Bros, Inc   July 17th 1951.   11 D
 Here's the leather after 63 years.   I gave them a very healthy dose of Obenauf's Oil.
And her's what they look like now.  Like I just opened the box.   These are amazing boots.   If you can find a pair in your size get them.  You'll be very happy.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
