RAF Suede ''Mosquito'' Flying Boots.

A size 9 example of the green suede flying boots known by the name Mosquito, used in hot climates by ground and air crew as they were very comfortable, they have a cloth tie to the top to protect against insects. The condition is very good, they have been worn but as seen from the pictures not that often. The inside has clear WD stamp and size marking with an Air Ministry crown. The leather soles are also stamped with a size 9.
