    No.

    Wartime boots were always brown leather.

    Cheers, Ade.

    60/ 70 jump boots... As has been said, wartime boots are brown, marines you really need boondockers!

    As said, brown was used by paratroops. I like these, though I have a black pair I wear regularly I believe they were made by Corcoran, with a steel shank in the sole and reinforced leather toe.
    Also, I noticed the laces are barred on yours nice touch.

    Here's a description. The brown pair on the left are made by Corcoran and the pair on the right are Goodrich and worn with leggings:
