This is a replica of the B5 type boot which was issued by the Army during The Great War. We have copied our boot from an actual surviving pair of originals using patterns of ours (we have been manufacturing heavy boots since 1899).
They are made on the correct 2181 square toe last. The upper is made from heavy gauge, dark brown oiled ‘rough out’ kip type leather. They have a leather insole, a double leather outsole and a military ring tipped heel. The sole is nailed with the military type flat ‘gripper’ studs.
The soles and heels of the B5 boots will be finished with the full metalwork unless specified in the comments box at time of the order being placed.
These boots are not just look-a-likes they are proper hard-wearing footwear made from the highest quality materials and components.
If you have any queries or would like further information please don’t hesitate to contact us.
THESE BOOTS ARE MADE TO ORDER – PLEASE ALLOW 12 WORKING WEEKS FOR DELIVERY.
