Amongst the hardest to find and one of the most sought after equipment pieces of WW1 are the elusive ‘B series’ boots which were introduced from 1915 onwards by the Army during The Great War. These are the B5’s.
Constructed in a robust pebbled leather this 1917 dated pair are in original untouched condition with perhaps the original leather laces.
The insoles are clearly marked and dated, the upper ankle with the WD arrow displayed in perforations. The soles are original with all the appropriate studs and heal plates in place.
Overall condition is very good. They display light service wear, the leather firm as it should be, all stitching intact and no obvious damage.
A very rare survivor.
