    Yes they are German. From the height of the boot I would think officer.

    Hello,
    From these pics it's hard to say.
    At best, due to the features they could be pre TR era private purchased boots for NCO....or postwar firemen boots a little bit embellished...tough call from these pics...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I would be more than happy to take more comprehensive images. Kindly inform me what details would be pertinent for an identification.

    Cheers,
    Richie

    How tall are these boots ? Did field grade officers wear these type boots ( with hobnails and horseshoe heels ? IF officers wore such boots , how tall would they be ?
    I have a beautiful pair with smooth leather sides, back and toes but over the top of the arch is a more textured leather ( pig skin ? )
    My boots are 18 inches tall.
