I asked the seller if there are any markings inside the boots. The auction is over but I'm not buying it anyway. I'm just interested for research purposes. I hope he gets back to me. Can't hurt to ask.
Yes, that is my daughter, Lin-Lin. She is 2 1/2 years old. That was her outfit for the International Day Festival in Fayetteville, NC. The Philippines was the host country this year and led the parade. She got to ride on the float.
I make sure she learns all about her heritige. I also really want her to speak tagalog. So Mom and Grandmother don't speak english to her.
Hey how about that, I have a 2.5 year old too. She wears me down. We're doing our best to keep her bilingual but her first instinct is to speak in English at home. Although it's funny how sometimes she would say something in both languages just to make sure we understand what she's asking for.
Every single Fil-Am friend of ours regretted growing up not being able to speak the language. Good luck and keep it up.
Maybe I can also use leather lace up leggings on top of my jump boots to simulate 1931's.
I saw that before but it takes 8-9 weeks to deliver. I do have time on my side since the Reading WWII Weekend isn't until June. A stupid little thing like toe caps will bother me to no end. I might as well bite the bullet.
I got my spurs but they won't fit my repro 1931 boots. The heel is too long/deep for the underneath strap to reach around and back up to the spur. I tried them on my Corcoran jump boots which are identical to 1931's except for the shorter boot top. They fit.

The third faint "strap" interesecting across his chest is the pistol rope as you can see is much thinner width hanging around his neck falling and intersecting in the direction of his right side hip holster.
