    Ankle boot markings...???

    Hi all:
    I have a pair of German ankle boots. I'm hoping someone can help me understand what the markings/stamps on the inside mean.
    The longest string of numbers is on the upper inside of the boots. The shorter number is stamped on the inside bottom/sole.

    Heel protection plate marking

    Both the heel plates/protective rims are marked with numbers: the right boot '17', the left boot '18'.

              Further info required

              If these are not German boots, what kind of boots are they and how can one determine they are not German?

                Recomend to use search engine here to find ORIGINAL german M37, M37/43, M37/44 or M44 boots to see how german made boots look like.

                You will find plenty of examples to compare with those boots.

                Those are definately not german made boots; might be some foreign made boots , as german army used many occupied countries army stocks.
