Woman’s Russet Leather Boots

Description

At the beginning of WWII, women of the Army Nurse Corps wore black or white lace-up oxford shoes. Nurses flying air evacuation missions or working in the field needed heavier shoes and boots. Initially they wore men’s boots and shoes but by 1942 versions were developed for women. The boots shown here were similar in style and color to what men wore.
