Post WW2 WWII Korean War M48 Boots 10 1/2R Used Paratrooper Airborne:
A used post WW2, Korean War era pair of M48 boots sized at 10 1/2R. These boots looked dry, sad, and dirty when I picked them up. They have been lightly cleaned with clean water, mink oiled, had brown dye touch ups to scuffs, polished with brown polish, and new leather laces from the military clothing & sales. The boots were not highly polished, simply brown polish applied and then buffed with a shoe brush. The leather laces are the type that today\'s soldiers use on the new brown jump boots. I did try them on for a walk around the yard after polishing and they functioned well except the soles are slick just like the Corcoran Jump Boot, lol. The boots were very dark when picked up and are still very dark, but are brown. The eyelets appear to be black. Overall condition is good.
I added some pictures where most of the stress occurs of footwear. There are a few cracks in this area, but none are through the leather.
