New jackboots. A pair of mint, unissued, early pattern Model 1939 Jackboots was used for the pattern. These are made from heavy vegetable tanned leather featuring rough-out toe and flesh side shafts. Soles and heels are also leather. Pullstraps are tan cotton HBT web. 7 sided Hobnails and flanged heel irons are correct reproduction WWII pattern.
Yes, these are made in China. Quality is decent.
We are working on higher end boots with wood pegged soles, but they will cost twice as much.
Sizes: These are marked like originals- with lot numbers and metric ("European") sizes. Here's how we converted them. They may not be the same way as YOU convert your East German officer strutting boots...but this is what we did:
US = Metric
8 = 27
9 = 28
10 = 29
11 = 30
12 = 31
13 = 32
Hobnails and heel irons: All boots come with hobnails and heel irons already installed. Yes, these look like W.W.II nails. They are reproductions. Hobnails are like tires, they will eventually wear out or fall out. (If you lose a few hobnails, that doesn't count as a defect. Originals lose them too. You must use a shoe last to install them!

Shafts: 17-18" (44-46cm) circumference, 13"-13.5" (33-34cm) tall, depending on the boot size. (Including the heel, these are about 15" tall in total.) The only detail we could not replicate was the wood peg construction on the soles. I know, we'll be cast into the eternal fires of farb-hell by a handful of devout stitch nazis for this assault on their authenticity. Most of these peg fascists are so damned fat that they risk asphyxiation if they bend over far enough to even glimpse their shoes in the first place much less count pegs. Anyway, who would be so insensitive as to criticize girth? Even alluding to the farb factor of beer bellies is akin to pointing out that Jesus' casting of demons into a few thousand pigs and inspiring them to commit suicide was an overt act of animal cruelty (not to mention the ruin of some poor farmers' livelihood). Anyway...if you're a wood peg nazi, leave us alone. And no, we don't know whether it's possible to drill holes in the soles in order to glue in toothpicks to imitate pegs. (Yes, several future astronauts have really asked this question.)
