I strongly suspect (read: am not 100% certain) that those boots are the same model as sold by Landser.

It seems you're probably correct! I searched Landser boots discussions and indeed these seem verbotten!

They look great, but the cost is beyond the means of most re-enactors.

the gebirgs and lowboots look good, but the jackboots look to have fat ankles and pebbled leather from the picture i saw. Is this a custom-boot firm; do they have an english pg? I can't read czech.
I live the war in my head and I am the walking dead when i'm alive. Everyone's a critic, but they live their lives in their heads and they are dead just like me, so i say let them 'live' until they die by me dead walking over them.

on the russian site some if you use google translator you might not be able to zoom in on the boots to view extra angle pictures. to remedy this, you could try just ww2.ru and using some memory work or going on their ENG on the top right corner get a modest translation so you can navigate to the boots and zoom in on other angles of whatever boots you happen to be looking at.

btw their jackboots, some may say are wrong from the horizontal seam on the shaft, but i know for a fact that some models had that reinforcement horizontal-seam on the shaft. I hope someone orders their boots, along with the czech boots so we can get a better view of the finished product, thus introducing new high-end boot makers as opposed to being left to cheap chinese sturm/atf, or resorting to more durable postwar conversions since the death/decline in availability of long-gone high-end boots. R.I.P (RAU/ZM [polish made], old ATF, Mattimore, Grigsby, LB, SS Room[they only have a few sizes remaining last time i heard or they rarely update their site])

and if you really want to get the infamous polish-made jackboots you can try here, but i don't know if the firm is still taking individual orders, but someone sometime ago got a custom early-war pair of polish-made jackboots from this source:
