These are the typical German boots that were worn circa 1939 with 34 cm tall shafts. Inventory will almost always show none in stock as these boots have so many options that I cannot stock all. Please see "More details" page and "Detailed discription" for more photos, information and ordering instructions.
We have finally perfected our WWII German boots. Our standard boot will be a 1939 vintage pattern with shafts of 34cm height. Circa 1942, the shafts were 28 cm high. Before 1939 they were 38cm tall. Our boots are made out good sturdy veg. tanned leather that is tough as nails. It has been heavily oiled to give flexibility where needed. These boots are not floppy and soft. These boots have the correct rough side out vamps, and polished side out shafts. Correct overlapped seam at the back, with four rows of stitching. Cloth pulls on the sides. Pegged soles, with a heavy "clump" type half soles attached as per the originals. Comes complete with horse shoe type heel irons. The heel irons we use are not original in style for these boots. I have a small limited supply of the thin West German heel irons I can install on these. They are real close. We cannot afford to buy original pieces to install.
Hob nails can be included with these boots. I do not have period correct German hob nails for the second world war. I do have hobnails that can be installed into the boots if you want the real feel of marching in hobnailed boots. They are not the eight sided German nails. They are available as an option below. If you have period correct nails that you want installed into your boots, I can do this for you at no extra charge. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me you are providing your own nails and then mail them up to me at:

You need bare minimum of 80 nails to do the job. On larger sizes 80 nails won't do the job, try to get a hundred pieces, as I cannot put them as close together as the original nails were and they will wear very fast..
Boots were originally brown, then re-dyed black. These boots are as close to the real thing as you can get without wearing the real thing. I now only offer them instock in brown only. I am tired of guys whining that my colour of black is not their colour of black. I'll still dye your boots for you. There is a surcharge for this, as it's a nasty, dirty process. I put a very thin coat of a black finishing dye on the shafts, and polish them. it allows the brown to bleed through and give the impression that someone spent alot of time trying to blacken these boots ( someone did, ME.) from brown and this finish will have to be looked after. You'll actually have to polish your boots! If this isn't the colour of black you want. Do it yourself.
SIZING. All men are not created equal, especially in the calf area. These boots come in a standard calf size for every size, shown below.
- Size 7, 15" around the tops
- Size 8, 15" around the tops
- Size 9, 16" around the tops
- Size 10, 16" around the tops
- Size 11, 17" around the tops
- Size 12, 17" around the tops
- Size 13, 18" around the tops.
- Size 14, 18' around the tops.
- Measure around your calves 14" up from the floor, and see if you match these numbers or are smaller. Remember to wear your trousers and measure around them also. If you are too big or too small to comfortably fit these you have the option of changing the calf size for your boots to get a better fit.
1. Select you size from the drop down menu. These boots are not available in half sizes. I am like the army. Two sizes, too big and too small. Select the closest. I suggest rounding up the half size. Click on the size to lock it in
Decide if you want me to hobnail your boots. Select the correct option Click on the option to lock it in.
Decide if you want the boots to be blackened by me. Write "Blackened" in the box that asks "Blacken your boots". There is a $25 extra charge to have the boots blackened. If you do not want them black leave this box empty. Any entry in this box will cost you $25.
If the standard calf sizes do not match up to you, too big or too small and you want to change them to fit, enter the calf size you want in inches into the box marked "change calf size to". There is a $25 extra charge to customize the fit. It pays me to hand cut out the uppers to fit. But, you get a boot that has a good fit in the leg. If you do not want to change the calf size leave the box empty. Any entry in this box will cost you $25.
