Replica 1939 Pattern RAF Flying Boots.
Whist we normally stick with original items here at the Oldnautibits HQ, once in a while replica kit comes in, such as this set of RAF 1939 pattern boots. This pair has clearly never been worn and whilst they look a bit 'fresh' at the moment a bit of use would make them look more authentic and with 75th anniversary of VE Day celebrations and the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain both this year these could be the ideal way to complete an RAF outfit without breaking the bank with an original set-even if you could find a pair! Like the original item these feature a black leather shoe section, a stitched leather sole and a beige canvas leg section. Inside, again like the issue boot, they are fur lined and the top of the leg is secured by a black leather strap. No size is marked but we have test fitted them here and believe they align to a UK 7 or EU41. Whilst the pattern is not completely authentic they look a lot more convincing than the British Army canvas legged Mosquito boots which are often sold as substitutes for the '39 pattern. Ideal for re-enacting, film work, dressing a mannequin or just to complete that RAF fighter pilot look for the 2020 Goodwood Revival! We have just the one pair available and when they are gone they are gone.
