    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Looks like something a Russian farmer have put together. I can't really tell if they are issued boot, the leather part of course. I have 2 pairs from WW2 posted here on the forum somewhere, but none of them is Wehrmacht issued boots. They were obviously used here on the front anyway. I think it looks like they have been "re-soled" in some place where footwear was in shortage and used post war. It could be in Germany or Russia, basically anywhere. I don't think a soldier did this or had it done. That is my take on these boots

    These are not German manufactured boots. I don't know what the country of origin might be.
