Re: Real WW2 Officers jack boots?
This type of high/riding boots has been made for decades (from the 20's to the early 60's)...so it's very hard to determine if they're from the TR period or not...
This said, there's one feature that i dont like very much on the boots shown here. For TR period boots, i do prefer when the leather part that comes from the foot is sewn over the leather part at the base of the shaft....here that's the opposite (see red circles on photo)...So far, boots i've seen with this feature were Reichswehr (a small part of the privately purchased boots made ) or post WW2....
