1947 Dated RAF/ Navy Pattern Ankle Boots
A well worn pair of ankle boots, of the type used by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy, dated 1947.
This particular pair came from an RAF National Servicemen, and have had studs fitted at some point after issue. The leather uppers and overall condition is good throughout, the soles have unfortunately been well worn and the studs have left holes having either been removed or fallen out over time.
They feature seven pairs of eyelets to each boot and are complete with their original laces. The internal soles are maker marked and dated 1947. They are stamped both internally and externally as a size 8 with the broad arrow mark.
Whilst the condition of the soles is not so good, the overall look of the boots is clean and would display without showing the wear.
