We are looking at the same thing. And not seeing the same thing. Page 57, in Mr. Arendell's book. Right hand side. Above the Alpini soldier.

I will look again at Russ's book page 57. When I check it last night, I didn't see a toe cap that was as extreme as the one on Tom's boot. Note I am using the word extreme to indicate the degree to which the cap varies in size from the standard.

I will give it another look.

Pista!

Here is a comparison of the toe caps. The first is from Russ's Italy at War; the second is of CW Boots; the third is a scan of what Hunter posted earlier from circolare n. 28.

I will not offer any more comments. I will let the members here decide for themselves.
