    I need the help from the forum regarding these Soviet wartime boots. At least these are offered like this. I have absolutely no experience with any Soviet shoes and boots so my questions are: are these real Soviet boots and are they wartime? Thanks a lot for your help! It is much appreciated!

    Hello Marcel,

    Soviet footgear is quite a difficult topic to handle, I still have to find an Rkka issue pair of which i'm 100% confident with...

    That said, the first thing I look are the sole's nails. If they're made of wood, then I proceed with the evaluation, otherwise I consider them as postwar made. In my PC screen the nails look's like made of brass or some kind of metal, am I correct?

    Of course, there are also postwar made boots with wooden nails (I think until the 50's), so this cannot be a general rule. But, as far as I know, there were no boots with brass nails in prewar and wartime years.

    By the way, I already saw this pair in the past, I think they are quite overpriced...

    As always, this is just my opinion, let's see if someone else can give you another comment about ;D

    Best regards,
    Gabriele

    Thanks a lot for your opinion Gabriele. Much appreciated!! Didn't know about wooden nails for Soviet boots. These are metal indeed from what I can see on the pics. Thanks for educating me!
