WWII  RAF FLYING BOOTS 1936 PATTERN

ORIGINAL WWII BOOTS

Superb original example of WWII Royal Air Force (RAF) 1936 pattern flying boots as worn during the Battle of Britain.

These iconic sheepskin-lined boots are in extremely good condition for their age. The belts and original buckles are strong and durable and the soles and heels appear to be original (see photographs). The leather is nice and soft and supple. The sheepskin lining is also in excellent condition and shows little sign of wear. The wear to the outside of the boots, to the leather, is minimal. There are a few spots of what appears to be red paint on the toe of one boot, but covering these shouldn’t be a problem.

The labels on the inside of these 1936 pattern RAF flying boots identify them as size 9, but they may be more suitable for a modern size 8 given the thickness of the sheepskin pile. Please refer to the approximate (but carefully taken) measurements below to determine the right size for you.

(Measurements taken on the outside)

  • Heel to toe: 11 ¾ inches

  • Width across widest point: 4 inches

  • Top of boot to bottom of heel: 14 ½ inches
