    I thought there might be some people on this forum that would appreciate these. Not reproductions, genuine article. Made by Bedggood boot company. A friend is selling them for me on ebay, but I am the owner of them so if anyone has any question about the boots you can ask me on the forum or send a private message. Forgot to mention in the auction but these will be shipped with USPS Priority Mail insured.

    Those are the nice and rare-ish brown Aussie 36ers made in Melbourne, VIC. VLJ member Andrew from QLD has a pair if my memory hasn't gone completely fuzzy.

    They should fetch a good price.

    I should have also said welcome Alex. If you're not too bashful scribble a few lines about yourself in the "Member Bios" sub forum.

    Hi Smithy, thanks for the warm welcome. Probably won't be on the forum much though, being that my collecting has an eclectic nature...selling these beautiful boots to help fund other obsessions haha.

    Great Looking boots!
    Unfortunately too small for me. Seems like the average shoes size in WWII was 9 - 9 1/2.
    Larger sizes 11 -12 just are very hard to find.

    Thanks, B-Man. The boots actually fit me perfectly, so I was tempted to wear them on a few occasions but didn't because I would have felt like I was destroying history if I were to wear them out. Got a couple really nice vintage jackets that I wear, but they don't have any military or historical significance so my conscience remains clean :D

    Not getting many bids! They are at $3.77 and only 5 hours left on the auction! Getting a little worried about it haha. Perhaps the last moments of the auction will see some action..

    Damn good price! Someone got a bit of a bargain I would have thought.

    Did see a pair on ebay that had sold a while ago for $240 that were in horrible condition, so was hoping for a bit more than what they sold for, but not too bad a price nonetheless.
