Flight Boot Development - 1939


Production of Fleece-Lined Flight Overboots Flieger-Überziehpelzstiefel Ends


Per LV 39, Nr.575 of 16 June 1939, the Luftwaffe ordered production of the flight overboots to cease.  With war imminent, and with a satisfactory design for regular flight boots in place for nearly two years, the obsolete overboot officially made way for its successors.  No war-time photography depicting the overboot in use has come to the attention of the author.
