    I can't help you with the value, but they are called "gaiters" and they were used to wrap around the ankles to keep dirt and water out of the boots.

    Are they gaiters? Ralph and his nimble fingers beat me to it.

    These are actually the tops of a pair of US Army double buckle combat boots.

    Sadly they have been cut off and are now for all intents and purposes worthless....

    I maybe had the advantage on you as I used to own of pair of these boots. They were a good practical design.

    So, essentially they are built in gaiters?

    Yes, they are. Very practical. I loved them. Sadly they went when I sold all my US collection.
