Young military officers look with great interest to the high-topped leather custom boot. A number of officers early in the war who are of the upper classes pay for their own special boots before going to the front (same thing happened during the Spanish-American War). The illustration is a very fine quality. (Doughboy /WWI /Military /Footwear /Fashion /Uniform /Patriotism) Light damp staining in the corners. The whole body of image is fresh and bright.
