    Heyhey esteemed crew - Picked these up not long ago..no brand or info on the inside, just the details on the outsole, brass hardware, soft toe. Any suggestions cheerfully accepted.

    Can't help much, but it looks to me very much like the rubber half sole and heel are relatively recent repalcements, so I wouldn't date by them.

    I've seen B.F. Goodrich soles like that on vintage WW II to Vietnam era U.S. combat boots before.

    I tried googling "Oak Ben Outersole" but that yielded nothing..strange that there are no markings inside..then again it could be that the stamped info has completely faded over time.

    Those definitely look like nice boots.
