    No idea why as I certainly dont have the space to store them all and dont collect boots as such but must have bought around 20 pairs in the last few months,French,Czech,German and various others.

    These can go if anybody interested. In better condition than they look and just need a bit of TLC to get them up to an acceptable condition for wearing/use or ideal as is for a Gulf War display.

    Hello all!

    I wrote a review about French Military boots BMJA Mle 52 - "Rangers marrons"

    Since 1950-s the French army boots are used to be called the "Rangers", because of their resemblance with the American military boots model M-43 (model of the year 1943), which were issued the US paratroopers and rangers during the landing in Normandy. In French slang, "Rangers" also called "Rangeots" or simply "Rangos" (the pronunciation of these words are close to something like "Ranjo").

    The American military boots model 1943, which has became the prototypes of the French "Rangers", are already very rare nowadays, and in their outward appearance they look very similar. The main differences of the American boots from the French ones:

    - The out-soles are relatively smooth, with not protruding "mesh-like" tread pattern and American manufacturers labels (sewn along the welt of the sole and padded with boot nails in the instep area);

    - Leather upper is softer and made more carefully(such boots rub the feet less and are easier to "break in");
    ...
