German WW2 Boots - Need advice

Post by AusA380 » 08 Aug 2018 13:57

Hi everyone,

I'm looking at buying these German WW2 boots. The date marking has worn off on them, so I was wanting peoples expertise to see if they are genuine WW2 era German boots (I'm not sure what to look for with boots). The hobnails look the same as I've seen with other boots. The other boots I've seen online have a rectangle or U shape stitching for the pull tabs, where these have a single stitch line. Could they be a private purchase? If they appear correct for the WW2 period, i'm still interested in purchasing them!


Thanks

They look like they have all the proper pattern/hobnails, etc. to be WW 2 jack boots.... but without any definate markings difficult to be 100% sure. The stitching on the pulls don't tell much either. Planned use and price would be my primary concern.

Thanks for the reply! I plan to put them on display with the other items in my collection, definitely won't be wearing them haha. I've attached a photo of the rear of the boots - There is a single interior stitch down the rear, which I believe is correct? Instead of the strip that is external and has stitching down both sides.
