Korean War US Army Combat Boots
Item #: WR443
This is a pair of US Army boots made by the Light Tread company during the Korean War. They are made of cordovan brown leather and are a size 11 regular. These boots were issued and show honest wear, yet remain in very good condition. There is some slight wear on the soles and heels of the boots. The black stamps on the inside of the boot are not legible, as the previous owner put a paint swatch over them and painted his name and service number in white on it. It is marked CHARLES W KANKAMP US 55448324 and shows up well in the photos. The overall appearance of the boots is exceptional. These boots have 11 eyelets and both have modern replacement leather laces. On the outside of each boot, to the wearers inside, the boots are stamped with the size 11 R and the letters GD within a square. Each sole has the makers label stamp of LIGHT TREAD HT within a circle. The heels are also stamped LIGHT TREAD with TRADE MARK also. The leather remains very supple and smooth. They still retain a shine and could be worn today. If you have a Korean War collection these would really look good in it!
