    The easiest way to find if they are Vietnam period is to look at the heels-99.9% of Vietnam period boots have an approx 1 inch row of vertical stitching to each heel.

    I say 99.9% of the boots as have found 1 maker who didnt have that feature and spent quite a lot of amusing time listening to an "expert" rant and rave that they were Post Vietnam issue boots as ALL Vietnam period boots had the stitching to the heel Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    another way is the type of soles or tread pattern

    if they are GI issue with the early style vibram sole you know they are Vietnam era, they stopped making those around 1967

    I have tried a several times to post photo's , but it won't work, even down loaded something but still no luck . I'm using an Apple if that makes any difference . I'm getting pretty feed up . Is there any other Camo sites where photo posting is easier ?
