    So I was back in an old surplus storage building today, and found a box full of these oddball shoes. They are all new, C/l\ marked, made in Argentina, and the really odd thing is the soles are made of a jute type string. I sure wouldn't want to wear them with no socks.

    So can anybody ID them as to their service use or purpose?

    Photos attached.
