I was planning to keep them for myself, but decided to sell them instead since I’m getting the tanker boots. They’re not as crazy as the previous pair, more toned down for most of us who aren’t as outrageous. They’ll be up on Ebay in a few days.

Just a little history of the boots. These are original Corcoran boots, made for the US army. They are also pretty well-known as jump/paratrooper boots, and were made famous in the movie Saving Private Ryan. After that movie aired people began snapping up the boots. They’re so sought-after that there are tips out there on how to spot the originals.
