Exclusive to The Tank Museum, military history fans can now add tank-themed footwear to their wardrobe.
The trainers showcase iconic tanks from the Second World War, including the Churchill Mark VII Crocodile from the Museum’s own collection and M4A3E8 Sherman ‘A Paper Doll’ tank.
Lucy McCalister, Marketing & Communications Manager, says: “We are delighted to launch these fantastic new trainers in association with I Love A Hangar”.
Made solely for The Tank Museum, the trainers are made to order and shipped straight from production to the customer.
“Tank fans can choose between two different iconic tanks, with a choice of high and low tops, to ensure maximum comfort”.
The Churchill Crocodile was a British flame-throwing tank and was introduced as one of the specialised armoured vehicles developed for D-Day under Major General Percy Hobart, known as ‘’Hobart’s Funnies’’.
Visitors to The Tank Museum can see the tank that inspired the design on display in the Museum’s Tank Story Hall.
The M4 Sherman, officially the Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by Western Allies and the US in World War Two. The M4A3E8 named ‘A Paper Doll’ served with the 68th Tank Battalion in Germany, 1945.
Trainers, tank slippers and more tank merchandise can be found on The Tank Museum’s Online Shop.
