Default Luftwaffe Tropical Leather and Canvas High Boots

Is there anybody who could share photographs showing German soldiers wearing Luftwaffe tropical canvas and leather high boots;the ones with laces up to ankle height and a flap-over arrangement for the calves with a strap that buckled on the outer side?
The only ones I've seen show inspectors checking them out in a depot but I haven't seen a single one of them showing these boots being worn by soldiers!
Thanks in advance
Manuel

Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe - Volume 2 (Angolia & Schlicht) shows a pair being worn. There is other interesting footware in that photo also.

Manuel, when you look through books on the DAK you begin to see that these boots were worn a lot.

Hi John,
I should double-check then,because in spite of having quite a comprehensive library I've only seen two or three pictures of DAK soldiers wearing them!
I'll thumb thru my ref books tonight and who knows....other interesting photos and details may pop out !
Best
Manuel
