Kameraden,
Could one of you tell me where this boot falls in the greater scheme or Wehrmacht-issue low boots during the war?

Taller than Schnurschue, yet it isn't one of the DAK issue. Ideas? Thoughts?

Those boots on RAU's site look like the ones by Czech maker JOKY.

One can see his lineup in this thread on Panzergrenadier.net

Alot of his stuff looks good, especially the Gebirgs boots.

According to the thread he has updated the "body" on the Schnuerschuhe.

I really cannot comment on these boots. I only own examples from HG Berger and Grigsby Militaria. The HG Berger boots are my favorites to date. Solid construction and made the right way.
Take it easy~, ゆっくりしていってね!!!

Right SteelPot, but what model of boot are they? They aren't Schnurschue, nor are they Gebirgsjaeger boots, so what are they?

There is one eylet missing per side :wink: The early war (till 1943) shoes had 10 eyelets and 8 hooks per shoe.

i actually just recently received a pair of sm wholesale lowboots. i will soon post it along with the m42 boots (atf and lost battalions made this version aka version without hooks) berger made for me a while ago and along with photos offer my opinion.


i am now currently waiting for berger to begin production of marschstiefels. (many possibilities, perhaps m39, m42, pre-m39[m36], and even the m1866 from the prussian and ww1 era).
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.

I will make the pre and midwar boots and the WWI boots. M1866 as soon as I find enough info about them. I will start this project in November beginning with mid war Marschstiefel.

Hallo!

I just recieved Herr Berger's boots 2 days ago. Not only are they the best reproductions I have ever seen, they feel amazing. A totally different fit then all my Hessen and ATF boots of the past. It is obvious these are superior to anything out there. Herr Berger is doing a great service to our hobby and I suggest everyone in need of boots give him a call. The 260 Euros it cost is worth it 110%. Also, it arrived at my house in 1 week exactly and Herr Berger anwsered all my questions in a timely fashion. I just need some Lederfett and these will be ready to go. Next purchase from Herr Berger will be marching boots!

Berger. They are exactly like wartime boots. Plus they are made in Germany. ;) No corners cut with him. I got out of the hobby, then got back in. This will be my second purchase from Herr Berger, and I am positive these boots will be just as great as my last. :)
