WW2 RAF Suede Leather Mosquito Boots

WW2, RAF warm weather & tropical climate 'Mosquito' Boots.

Unlined Green Suede Leather, calf length boots with leather soles.

Intended for use by RAF ground crew, these boots were often used by Aircrew as they were found to be more comfortable to wear, in hot aircraft cockpits, being without a fur lining.

Termed 'Mosquito' boots due to the draw-string ties, which were to prevent insects from entering in to the boot.

These boots have Air Ministry stamps inside, as well as War Department reference stamps.

The inside sole is stamped with the maker and dated 1942.

They are in a very good 'used' condition, and are named (some wear to the heels and soles).
