    They sure ain't "Kommis"...they could be everything but a pair of WH/WSS/LW/KM(etc)-issue boots!

    They could be anything from any era...they sure ain't WH-issue!Any "private purchase" pair of boots could be of any vintage and If I had to put up an officer rig I'd either go for a pair of WH-issue Reiterstiefel or,if it's a 100% combat rig,a pair of any other style of footwear!
    If you want to know if they would look OK on a mannequin I'd say no...too strange-looking and not that "martial".
    "Private Purchase" boots without a 101% certified period of manufacture are just another old pair of shoes to me!

    When it comes to boots, Manny is the first person I would ask. So I would agree with his comments 100%.

    Cheers, Ade.
