Many American manufacturer competed for lucrative government contracts for Service Specification shoes and boots and for entry into this demanding area of the trade, “Mil-Spec” footwear, then as today, products had to pass rigorous testing for durability, resistance to petroleum products, anti-sparking properties (in high fire-risk environments, for instance, on flight decks or motor pools) and anti-skid properties of its Vulcan heels (for instance, aboard ship), not to mention smart appearance and easy maintenance so important to military personnel. This is such a shoe, simple, straight-forward, handsome and indestructible; a true “find” for any gentleman.
