The Corcoran Jump Boots were devised specifically for the airborne infantry in 1941. Troopers would blouse their trousers into their boots. They saw action in Sicily, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany.
Corcoran Brown Military Leather Paratrooper Boot
The design of this boot owes its origins to the USA's entrance to WWll, when Major William P. Yarbourgh designed the innovative paratrooper uniform. The boot was calf-length, lace-up and featured a leather upper, a rubber sole and a slanted heel designed so it wouldn’t snag on the lip of an aircraft door.
The classic CV1511 Corcoran jump boot combines vintage military style and design with essential updates to to comfort and durability for the modern person who appreciates the classics, not to mention being proudly American-made. Because it's made down to small sizes, this boot can be worn by men and women alike. The brown, "spit shine-able" full grain leather upper comprises the handsomely rugged profile once sported by paratroopers and airborne infantry forces during World War II, and stands at above the standard full-height to provide an excellent amount of ankle support. Just like its ancestor, this combat boot comes unlined which means that it will mold and shape to the wearer during the break-in period (kind of like an old baseball glove) for a fit that eventually feels comfortably custom-made. And thanks to a tried and true Goodyear welt construction, the oil-resistant rubber outsole can be repaired and replaced multiple times due to it being stitched to the upper rather than glued, which in turn extends the overall life of the boot and allows you to enjoy many years of wear.
Staying true to its roots, this paratrooper boot features a Garrison Army Munson last for a superior fit. Invented in 1912 by Dr. Edward Munson of the US Army, the Munson last was developed to enhance the fit and comfort of boots issued to soldiers, and was the first to even approach this task by adhering to natural foot shape and contour. The result is a last that is roomy in the toe while being tight in the heel, giving these Corcoran boots a stable, locked-down fit with enough room for the bones of the foot to spread upon impact for a more natural strike and great surface contact. This comfortable design is supplemented by modern updates like a Poron cushioned insole as well as a triple-rib steel shank for ample support and strain reduction to your knees and lower back.
