New old stock (NOS) woman's vintage over the shoe boots in shiny black rubber. Marked size 10, also fit size 9 1/2. Traditional style galoshes with a silver metal zipper closure on the inside calf, they hit at about mid-calf when worn. These boots could have been made any time in the 40s, 50s, or early 60s, and come in their original box.

Made by Bristolite, the same company that made cold/wet boots for the US troops in World War II.

Boot Height: 10 1/2" (25.4 cm)
Inside Length: 11 1/8" (28.2575 cm)
Inside Width: 4" (10.16 cm)

I wear a size 9 1/2 to 10 myself, so I tried some of my own shoes inside one of the boots (cleaned the shoe bottoms off first). A lower profile shoe in size 10 fits, as does a size 9 1/2 Merrell (size 42 European) with a higher profile and thicker sole. Size 40 (European size) eccos are wider through the ball of the foot, but still fit inside the boot.

Lined with what appears to be a thin cotton knit. Second to last photo shows one side zipper open and the wide gusset behind it that protects from moisture getting inside the boot. One price tag appears on the outside of the original box, and another appears on the bottom of one of the boots, which are still crisply textured with no wear. There are little surface variations here and there that occurred in the thick rubber during original production. The zippers work well too.

I happily combine shipping if possible. Contact me for an exact combined shipping cost prior to purchase, otherwise I refund excess shipping cost to your Paypal account after your purchase.
