    They certainly appear to be so. Nice find. I have a pair that was originally owned by a fellow named August Leibolt who was a Luftwaffe officer (anti-aircraft I think) who was captured in the Normandy area. After the war he moved to the US. He died about 2 years ago.

    Hello,
    The boots that opened this thread are certainly german but not regulation. It is a pair of privately purchased boots patterned after the regulation type. The reinforcing leather band at the rear is external (it should be internal) and the heel is not exactly shaped like a regulation heel....A good pair of boots anyway...

    The other boots are also privately purchased, Officer type with soft shaft...
    Thanks

    Right JPhillip. Leibolt's boots, as I understood it from the person I got them from and who was a friend of his, had them made.
