regarding irish skinhead back in 69/70 a book "where were you" about Dublin street style from 1950 to 2000, have some pics...
This is the BCH, the mid-80s shortlived successor to the DMS & puttees. Funny reading from ARRSE as per usual. Boot Cardborad Horrible.

Only singing Beatles lyrics to annoy you Queenie
James i would like to get hold of a pair of ankle DMS, Great for running in, Better than Trainers i found, The High leg that came into service in the 80s, caused so much damage to lads Achilles, awful boot, I manage to get hold of a pair of American Rocky boots in a US Base PX shop which i had for ages.
For comparison purposes
The differences between NIPB and BCH were that NIPB was basically an extended version of the DMS and had a softer leather shaft than the cardboardy shaft of the BCH.
Also the BCH didn't have a toecap or the low heel section and a had much less rounded toe shape than the DMS/NIPB
Another difference is the grip.The BCH had the new style grip, whereas the NIPB had the standard DMS grip.
BCH - Mark I
Selhurst Park, C1973 - DMs sprayed silver.
Sorry, no info:
Current issue, if anyone's interested
Rupert, Rupert the Bear everyone knows his name.....
We were not that scruffy,plus the Hammers sign would be up somwhere.
If the sprayed Boots were at Selhurst,no wonder the Ground is half deserted!
The 3 with the short strides on - that's 4th June 1974 in Belfast.
I've got a pair of Jaytex ruperts in a similar but smaller check to the ones in that '73 pic - straight leg sta press, 17 inch bottoms.
Sprayed up Martens - popular early 70s footy attire when ye boots were no longer fashionable - spray them silver, have a scrap, all the paint falls off, spray them gold for next week - great.
Were these anything like the Ruperts you had,Roy?I have tried to get my Brain into gear-nothing!
Ah!Moon Boots!!-or so they were nicknamed.
