M-43 SERVICE SHOES
Last couple to clear. Normal price £374.99. Not to be restocked next season.
The M-43 Service Shoe is really what we would call today an ankle boot. It was in fact the standard issue combat boot issued to G-Is, standardised in June 1943.
Made from a 'Rough-Out' hide (Rough-Out meaning the hide was turned inside out - leaving the nap side facing outwards, with the top-grain on the inside), the M-43 service shoe superseded the earlier 1939 model service shoe.
