Are you disgusted by the prices of WWI German mountain boots??!! These things were always around in the past and nobody cared much about them. Lately they are all $800+, and are hard to find. This is a good size 11 solid pair of WWII German mountain boots, but, there is always a but, they are very slightly mismatched. They are the same size. I bought them from the vet's son who wore them for a while. The color of the cloth @ the top is a but different, and the number of grommets is also different. My guess is that the trooper had 2 sets of boots which were almost identical and the sets got mixed up. From a display standpoint, they look fine together. The leather is very solid. The soles are a bit dry, and some of the central nails are missing, but mostly on the one boot. This is the perfect set of mountain boots for your display.
