    Default Do these look right to you? (WW2 German boots)

    Hi all - need someone's input on these - Seller id offering me a pair of "WW2 boots" - I have asked the seller for some pictures of the soles, for now these are the pictures I have on file. My first impression of the size stamp (impression in the leather) is that the font is wrong, the ink stamp inside can be easily faked I'm guessing. I know next to nothing about boots, so any feedback (even minor points) would be helpful - Thanks in advance. Click image for larger version.

    They are looking good, the pictures of the sole will help.

    Hello,
    IMO postwar with added fake stamp (numbers are original to the boots, circle stamp isn't)...save your money
    Thanks

    Agree with above - Fairly modern riding boots with bogus ink stamp

    Definitely not German with a 7 1/2 E size. I guess that if a guy can palm-off something like that I should think twice before I buy a pair of genuine Roman Legion sandals stamped with the Imperial Eagle and legionem Romanam imperialis, size 10D. Dwight
