Default Marching boots

Saw these for sale and it surprised me to check these were made in just one piece of leather. The rest of the details seem german military to me. What are you thoughts?

I have a pair of NCO boots which I would say have identical soles. Interior looks good. Mine are labled Wasserdicht near the bottom. Very dirty kind of hard to see detail. I would request a front and rear view standing up.

IMO WW2 German manufacture. But better close up pictures of soles are needed.

This boots have nothing to do with the hungarian army, actually Honved army rarely used any high boots except mounted units. (...and except officers of course) But those were totally different and had obvious markings. I do not know what this are, but they are definitely not hungarian ones.

I don't doubt you, but every roof in rural Hungary are still full of such boots, they were mass produced till the sixties for civilian usage. Army boots are always clearly marked and were not made in this style. Anyway they can origin from Hungary of course, but have nothing to do with the official ww2 boots.

Are the soles German? They seem to be.

Nice to see there's some discussion on these.
What caught my eye is what I thought were german soles with german military nails/irons.
Then again I was surprised to see they were made in one piece of leather sewn at the back by one line of sewing.
Seller claims there are no markings but under that ammount of dirt you never know.
Alas no more pictures as boots are gone now.

Totally agree with J. Csernus.
Hungarian 38 M. "short legs" boots are totally different and no other types were issued.
