Default Original Wehrmacht Parade Boots

Here are my original Wehrmacht Officer's parade boots. Still in amazing condition.
They're a UK size 9, and really just amazing. I hope you enjoy these.
p.s. I am currently selling them

Sorry, but these look like 1960s East German officer boots to me, although I am not WW2 footwear expert. Heel is DDR pattern and clearly can read "VEB" (="volkseigener Betrieb", a purely communist term) on it.

Hello
I own a pair of East German boots, and these are certainly not East German. The original leather soles are in place and are wooden pegged, the rubber on the heel which reads "VEB" has been applied post-war, evident by the different method of attaching them onto the boot
Apart from that, East German boots have wholly rubber soles (apart from early DDR boots, which had leather soles BUT had completely pebbled uppers with a very soft calfskin lining)- These boots ont he other hand, are smooth, and have a solid shaft peice made from a hard leather material.
PLUS, East German boots have a distinctive poly material pulleys, these pulleys are a completely different material and patterned
The shape of the heel, the stacked leather at an angle, is typical of Wehrmacht parade boots. And most definitely the soles, which are -afforementioned- wooden pegged
A simple google search will reveal the clear differences between my pair of boots and East German boots

Yes the soles are strange, but very early DDR boots had pegged soles and stacked heels. I not mean later versions. Especially from very early period (like for officers of KVP), there is much variation.

You could post in DDR subforum and ask their opinions these boots on postwar East German vs. wartime. Several posters there are very knowledgeable.

Plain German riding boots, made between (best) late 40's and (even) 80's. Don't know what makes them "Parade".

Perhaps,"funny guys" however that offer a full refund on a sale are tough to come by these days...
Don't get "married" to anything you have posted for comments,if I am allowed to use an old Greek saying.

Hello,

Only iditots press "buy now" button, confirm they's offers and then send me messages like this:

"Dear grubhywh,

Hi I accidentally clicked sofort-kaufen whilst on the mobile app
Could you please cancel that transaction

- rory3911"

"Buyer" unable to understand what he is actually doing has been reported to the ebay and these would be relist this Sunday on same, low price.

Contrary to your's pair these are period made boots AND if buyer would be not happy full refund.

Your first post is essentially a sales post, which is against the rules. Messing with someone's ebay sales and then admitting it makes one think.
