My Uncle's Vietnam Boots




















The perfect boot. Made in the USA - quadruple stitched and stamped 1968. My Uncle Buford Shields Bray passed these and his Jungle Boots onto me years ago. These spent time on Saigon soil from 1968 - 1971.

Those are perfect. I just wish they weren't so 'chic' right now.

Indeed. Fashion is very cyclical that way and the fashion masses will soon be tired, yet a gain, of that military inspired look. I, however, will soldier on, undaunted, by any current trends that may try an sway my boot choices.....
