    They do not look like anything WWII German military that I am familiar with Nuno. The heel irons look military but the toe taps don't. To thin. The boot tops seem short for an officer and the tightening buckle at the top is not right.
    Just my opinion.

    Hi Nuno, I have a lot of photos on file of original boots in detail, but the pics are not mine to post here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    These boots are not WWII military but can be seen on period photos, especially late in the war. I already posted a photo showing a german officer wearing the exact same type of boots in Lorraine, September 1944.
    Not regulation, but rather privately purchased.
    U-shaped irons on the heels are wider than german issue type, they look more like the czech type.
    Thanks

    So, they are period but private purchase.
    Just not military issue.
    Thank you all.
    Cheers.
