HOBSON'S CHOICE

Not exactly made by Will Mossop, but by John White in 1941, these beautiful boots are somewhat of an enigma. Made from ‘rough out’ leather, they bear the War Department’s broad arrow, or ‘crows foot’, stitched into the top surface of each boot. One could speculate that these were for military prisoners, possible Officer Class? John White were the largest supplier to the War Department of military footwear during WWII, but these are the only such example we have found.
