Hello! Vietnam boots from Goodwill, great buy! NEW, I think! High Tech! haha Steel plate in bottom for protection from Punji Stakes, (see 4th photo), Canvas sides for faster drying after walking in Rice Patties or rain. ALSO see brass squirt holes in 2nd photo! if in water it would squirt out after finished walking through. Last photo is enemy making punji stakes! I heard they would put feces etc. to cause infection?! I do not know but even with steel plates in bottom you could get stuck in side of leg. They would put in hole and then camouflage the hole. Pardon my spelling! Many of us left boots on night and day, never know when you have to run!
