    Authentic and original Government Issue Tankers Boot of the late variety, Circa 1945 or earlier -the type began in 1934- cloth lined, rubber heeled (now replaced). These boots were much in demand for civilian use after the war as they more closely resembled pre-war civilian men’s shoes than other military footwear. Unfortunately, due to the relatively short life expectancy of tankers, not a great many of these boots were left after the decisive final battles of the war. Such as do exist in good condition today have disappeared into private collections of war memorabilia. This is an eminently wearable boot with tremendous historical significance.
