    Default Itshide Commando Sole Boots

    Here are 2 recently acquired pairs of boots both with the Itshide Commando sole. Both pairs look to be unissued and are a size 8m and are WD marked on the inside of the Ankle.
    I cant find out much about them. The Itshide company was down the road in Petersfield and I believe made soles for Aircrew during the war and the soles for the Commando Boot.

    The first pair are like the standard issue ww2 boots but with the rubber sole screwed on and the tongue is sewn up to the 3rd eyelet. These are not dated but are maker marked T&HD.

    This pair I think are Cold Wet Weather (CWW) boots issued in Korea and the like. They are over sized so you can get a thick pair of socks on. They are also padded around the Ankle.

    Here is a side by side comparison showing the chunkiness of the CWW boot.

    Dear Sir, i've got a mint pair of 1953 dated CWW boots too, but too big for me (size 10)... Would you be interested in swapping them with yours? Thanks, Ben
