There will be no restock of US Made boots. The factory has decided to downsize and private label boots like ours will no longer be offered. We are looking outside of the US for options, but we have no idea when or if we'll be able to replace these boots.Made in USA
New, ATF reproduction WWII pattern jump boots, made in the USA with Goodyear rubber. As with out other US boots, these are contracted exclusively by us, and they are close to the WWII issue boots as we can get. Made for us by HH Brown, with first quality American chrome tanned leather, finished in the Army *cordovan brown. We spend over a year getting the "Wingfoot" logo trademarked with Goodyear and working with them to get the molds made to recreate it.
How do these differ from "Corcoran" Jump Boots? Mainly on the bottom. The most obvious change are the Goodyear parts on underneath, and the way the edges of the soles are finished. Less evident is the full sole- ours are real leather, while Corcorans are "composite" which has had the unfortunate habit of cracking in half on some boots. (I only learned this last year.) There are minor changes internally, in the lining piece and the finish on the leather is slightly different, hopefully making them easier to polish.
Sizes: Our sizes are accurate as per US government specifications, and it is the same as the US military uses. Do not "order up" as the sizes were designed to allow for the wearing of cushion sole socks and feet to swell. These usually correspond well to most leather work and hiking boots. If you've spent your entire life in Skechers and shower shoes, or are unsure, it's best to visit a shoe store and have your feet measured on a Brannock device.
