Any idea? =)
I'm not sure, didn't those boots were made the same up to 1950 I believe, tell me if I'm wrong..
From these two photos, it looks like they are private purchased boots not meant for field use as they've got a hard shaft. Only soft shaft were allowed at the front (of course on period photos you can see both worn). More photos would be useful for more accurate comments, especially from the sole, heel, iron etc...

I notice in image eight there is an ink stamp in your boots right next to the pull straps the stamp may have some key information as to when these Knobelbecher boots were manufactured .

Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
As JP said: private purchase Officers boots. I think they are wartime.
