Red Wings brand pair of size 9 men's Gore-Tex boots. The boots are well worn in the soles with smooth tread and the leather is dry and cracked around the joint of the boot foot. Dust and dirt have collected on the boots, but the boots are not shedding debris.
This is one of the last pairs of boots worn at Ground Zero by construction manager Brian Lyons, who worked on the rescue, recovery, and reconstruction of the World Trade Center site.
