10th Mountain Division Lugged Leather Ski Boots – 1943

Barker Shoe Co. 10th Mountain Division ski boots. Boots are dated 1943  Produced in Boston.  This example has original waxed laces with metal ends. Also the wool foot bed for insulation. Goodyear heavy lugged sole provides traction when not full of snow or mud. From what I understand the original design had a flat sole, but traction was impossible so they later retrofitted these boots with the lugs. Squared off toe allows for maximum heel lift during cross-country maneuvers.
