Original 50s or 60s corkys .paratroopers boots With original soles and heels .The uppers are in great shape with no rot or dry cracking. Great candidate for a retread and years of use. The size of these old quality USA boots is exactly what the tag says it is. Remember those days

Will ship on your dime.

Same here.... as a private I developed the skill (using just Kiwi black from the PX) to put a spit shine on them Corcorans to where the entire boot looked like it was wet, and you could see your reflection in the heel and toe cap while holding it arms length away.

It came in handy as a Drill Sgt... I remember once, when a new private accidentally dropped his K-pot right on top of my toe-cap and actually dented the top.... they were sweet, resoled with Vibram treads.... uuugh!

:s0058:

My biggest pet-peeve (concerning boots) was when people would call them “Cock-rans” instead of “Cor-co-rans”.... illiterate dummies. :rolleyes:


Several years later (2nd) ex-wife threw my beloved pair out one day..... I should have ended her right there on the spot. o_O



Sorry, I digress. :D
