GI Bunny Boots with Valve— Used
These Bunny Boots are the last remaining genuine extreme cold weather boots from this era. Made to similar specs as the Mickey Mouse boots, these will keep you warm and dry even when the temperature is in the negatives. They have a pressure valve to release pressure from the rubber at high altitudes, like in a plane or mountain. These boots are ideal for ice fishing, hunting, and other activities that require prolonged exposure to sub-zero temperatures.
These Bunny Boots are used; although they are in very good condition, they might still show moderate wear and age signs.

A theory on the origins of the name "Bunny Boot" is that they make the wearer's feet look disproportionately large, like Bugs Bunny's. The extreme cold weather boot is actually nicknamed after the snowshoe hare, commonly found in Alaska. During the fall, the rabbit's fur changes color from brown to white, allowing it to blend in with its winter surroundings. As winter gets closer, more and more rabbits appear with their new white "boots."
