RAF 1943 pattern flying boots, S8

Code: B27497

SOLD

Stores reference 22c/917-924.  The wartime 'escape' pattern flying boot.  Unknown size, measuring roughly 29.5cm from toe to heel which we think may make them about a '8'.  The suede uppers are very good with only light rubbing and soiling and both buckles/straps are excellent.  Fitted with good working War Department broad arrow marked 'W' zips.  The shoe sections on each boot are good bar scuffing and surface nicks, notably near the toe sections.  Note there are a few broken stitches where the left toecap meets the sole (see photograph).  The boots have old/worn replacement rubber soles and heelplates.  The linings are generally very good if a little soiled.  Complete with insoles.  A good/ good '+' used pair.  Stock code B27497.

NB. some of the 'spots' visible on the photos are actually a result of lighting/lens aberration and not actually on the boots.
