Nice pair of German World War 1 / World War 2 Period Officer's Boots with Hobnails (Stiefel für Offiziere). Besides the helmet, the blackened leather boot is probably one of the most instantly recognizable items of the German military. Officers and certain senior NCO ranks were responsible for purchasing their own uniforms including footwear. The Officers and certain senior NCO’s could choose to purchase their footwear from the armed forces clothing depots or to privately purchase footwear of higher quality. This is a nice army issue pair of, tall, black leather boots (Hohe Stiefel). The boots are faintly marked inside the shafts. The boots might even date from the WW1 period. Complete with hobnails. The boots are in used condition and are showing normal traces of usage. Nice pair of period black tall leather army boots!
