|Title||Boots, Brown Leather, World War II|
Brown leather cavalry booots. The boots have brown laces that go through holes in the boot extending from the ball of the foot until slightly above the ankle. Above this, the boots have 10 small, metal hooks a shoe lace could be laced around on each side of the boot. The boot tapers at the ankle, widening up the calf. The sole of the boot is stiff with a "CAT'S PAW" logo on the heel. On the interior of the outside edge of the shoe is a black stamp that reads, "SEPTEMBER (7?) 1933 8 D 2035 5 INTERNATIONAL (????) CONTRACT (?????)" with the rest being illegible. On the inside of the boot is a long tongue that runs the length of the leg.
Note: donor form said that shoe laces were missing, so these may be replacements when used on exhibit.
