    I think you will find that these are Bundes issue postwar not WW2.

    I would agree. The swastika is bogus.

    Yep, West German. We wore these type of boots reenacting back in the 70's because real or reproduction WWII jackboots were hard to come by.

    I don't recall ever seeing a swastika marking on any Third Reich period leather item.

    It is true that aircraft mechanics and tank crews wore rubber soled boots ( but mainly the short boot ) but sadly these aren't either ....... sorry.

    But they do look cool. Wouldn't mind owning a pair when I ride my motorcycle! Especially with the metal toe and heal. Could throw some nice sparks in the turns!

    You can plainly see what came to be called the NATO buckle on the Bundeswehr dice shaker of the 1950s and 1960s and such.

    These boots are likely of better quality than wartime Wehrmacht boots or the reproductions of now.
