    I did not think US paratroop boots were hob nailed. They could be German?

    Sorry they are not US jump boots.
    Wrong heels.
    Wrong toe stitching design.
    US jump boots were never hobnailed.

    Good ID'ing there Tom. I was leaning towards German because they look like the old Danish army boots. Danish army use a lot of German equipment. There is a saying in the Danish army "if it's not German, it does not work".

    Hello Everyone,

    Thank you for replies. Gentleman who found and sold me boots wasn't sure what is this or maybe..?(good that cheap price) I had small hope that maybe if these are not US, maybe and somehow these are WW2 German. Thank you for good lesson regarding para boots.

    Cheers
