    Default WW2 Jump boots or not?

    Hi, can you guys help me with these pair of combat boots.

    They resemble ww2 jump boots in several ways, they donīt have the heel cap which extends up the backays on Russel boots , they have the half sole and double stitching, they have holes between the double stiching in front, and of course marked 1942.

    What do you think? I would be very thankful for your input

    Hi snixprix

    These look like a very nice pair of WW2 CORCORAN PARATROOPER JUMP BOOTS mate.
    As usual, I am willing to stand corrected as appropriate by others more knowledgeable than me.

    Regards etc

    I'm pretty sure your right jimpy, all Korean war boots were made like this, but without the little panel in the middle on the bottom & I'm pretty sure they had 12 lace holes, not 11. you win today's grand prize.LOL
    regards marty uupppsss forgot Korean boots had smaller heels.

    Yes, those are correct WW2 jump boots, and in great shape for the age.

    by looking at some in ebay, those are brand new, but then on ebay every pair from Korea are listed as para boot's , but they are not, they are ground pounders.
