Default Help Id Late War Luftwaffe Gamaschen?

I have these spats I could use some help on. I have never seen them before, but maybe someone here has. THey are made of heavy, low quality wool like on the Luftwaffe M43 greatcoat. The only markings inside are "2" for size. They go over the top of the shoe, up to the knee. I can only suspect these are for cold weather? Possibley an Eastern front accoutrement? I am not sure they are German, but wanted to know if anyone has seen them before or has a set. Opinion and help wanted.

God Bless

Hello Gerard

I have never seen these either , for cold weather is the best possibility.
However ,I can't tell you when they were made. Could have been used during the war by a driver ,or a pilot ,could have been made post-war ,by a civilian.
They do appear well made,but they seems to be complicated to produce ,if late war. Are the web straps wartime produced ? they kind od remind me of the post-war webbing ?.
I wonder ,if someone would have a picture somewhere
