Size marked 10 - 10 1/2 (US size) although edges can be trimmed if fitting to slightly smaller boots. Original WW2 MADE and UNISSUED. NO wear or damage, a few surface marks however they all have slight curling due to almost 75 years of storage.Take a look at the photos for a shot of the edge of the soles. We will send the flattest we have! Composition material is very hard & stiff so we offer these as a display item rather than to actually be fitted to your boots.
