Default Black SS boots with stamp inside

Today I have got this original SS boots. They are stamped inside with SS runes. Inside the boots are white painted. It´s typical SS or Leibstandarte?

IMO those boots show a number of specific characteristics that are found on SS officer high boots that were contracted for sale through the SS Kleider Kasse. There are also some differences compared to others that I have seen.....but the examples of real ones have been so few that it is hard for me to make too many conclusions. I think that yours may be a little earlier....maybe late 30s.

The exact details in the way these boots are made is the distinction (IMO) of the specific SS contract boots as opposed to simply private purchased generic officer high boots for any service.

These are the only that I recall seeing with the white "painted" inside lining....but the others have a white suede type (split leather) lining, the markings are the same although some will have the VA stampings along with the SS and the RZM and some will not have RZM if later I guess.

Heel irons are different as these are the wider ones....the others are like issue EM marching boots...narrow rims. The nails would have probably been added after the sale as the owner wanted.....black leather inside breeches tabs are typical on these SS contract types....but not unique to them. The shape, the seams, and how the top outside is sewn to the inside layer seems to me to be almost unique to the SS officer contract boots.
