Weird. They do not look like a german army issue paire (sole, stitching, overall shape). I'd say they are for workers with added RbNr stamp.

Could they be occupied Czech production? Single sole and size number make me think so.

Can be postwar production from wartime material in Baťa /Svit factory in Zlin,where the WH boots was produced.

Hi.

To me the stamp does not look from the photos like post war added.
Could indeed be a production of some occupied country.
Here's a pictures of a rotten shoe that I found many years ago with other rotten textbook German ones in a barn.

I don't think the RBN stamp is post-war added too.

Here's a boot that obviously (imo) has been produced in occupied France. French style upper and German style soling.

Hi.
I did not found any German WWI uppers in this style.
Tongue is made like the French ones have.
Did Germans executed tongues in such way as well?

Here's a peculiar boot that was recently found in Estonia. Made in Riga in 1944.
