Ever heard of RAF deck boots?
I used to wear blue suede boots in the 80's. Didn't know the RAF was ahead of i's time...

I was going to say firefighter boots and I see someone appears to have told the seller that. They used to be pretty plentiful years back. Snazzy!

Good Afternoon Chaps.

Definately Boots, Crash firefighters. I still have mine. Very comfortable they were too, although they had the same grip as the aircrew boots, so were absolutely useless when you were in mud or snow, or foam!

Accompanied by a wooly green(originally blue) suit, White "bucket of doom" with a visor you couldnt see out of, and underneath it all, a wonderfull string assembly of vest and long johns, and a pair of silver "monster paws".

Glad things have changed.
