Grafters UNISEX Original Leather Monkey Boots Black Wine & Light Brown
The history of the monkey boot goes back a fair way; to WW2 in fact when they were worn by the Czechoslovak army. In more recent times the boots were adopted by Carpenters and Roofers, the unique toe cap design enables work to be carried out comfortably in a kneeling position. The boot is still today a popular style amongst British subcultures.
The problem with monkey boots is that they are extremely hard to get hold of. Never to be seen in a high street shoe shop, they are only ever found up side streets in cluttered army surplus stores. These are the original monkey boot sold over decades and can happily be called "our BEST sellers". Get with the trend and treat yourself to an all time classic by buying monkey boots.
insoles should to be fitted as these boots are about a half size bigger than normal..

And the right size of boot for my comfort and safety, the sole has to be flat, my natural foot is 28cms long while my false foot is 26.6cms long. This is a genuine request.
