Meaning of numbers on boots

Post by Pointless2Play » 30 Mar 2020 00:45

Hey guys!

I was interested in buying some original German boots. Now I found this on the inside of the boot

I was thinking, maybe it's the measurements but I'm not sure what anything would mean past the 43. I was hoping anyone of you might know this.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Finn S.

The image doesn't work, but it sounds like the shoe size. Most men use between 41 and 47.
