The padded canvas boot was probably made for a soldier experiencing trench foot. During the First World War, many soldiers experienced the condition, which was caused by prolonged exposure to the wet, the cold and mud in the trenches. The skin became black and in extreme cases amputation was required. The boot was made in Austria and may have been supplied to a German or Austrian soldier. maker: Unknown maker Place made: Austria
