Default Tropical boots

A friend gave me two photos he'd taken of a pair of tropical boots but he wasn't certain where he'd seen them years ago. As it can be seen from the photo, they are different from the army tropical boots but have some things in common with them. This particular pair has 8 pairs of eyelets and 7 pairs of speed lace hooks. They are a dark tan in color which might suggest KM use. Unfortunately, there is no photo of the soles and not notations of any markings in them.

Does anyone know definatively what these are?

Hi Ralph,
You are correct...these are the KM pattern tropical long boot. They can be seen on page 114 of "Afrikakorps" by Jacques Scipion (from the French publisher H&C).

Cheers! Wade K.
