WW2 German leather ankle boots. 

These are high quality reproduction German Army boots hand made in Europe using traditional skills.

The Schnurschuhe,ankle boot was introduced in 1937 and where initially issued for walking out dress and where not fitted with hob nails. Early in the war the German ankle boot was allowed to be used for use in barracks, drill and work wear. 

It was not until 1941 that the ankle boot was allowed to be worn as a combat boot.  

The ankle boot design varied a little during the war the height from heel to the top of the boot could be between 14 and 16 cm high, this one is 15cm high.

The WW2 German Army leather ankle boot or "Schnurschuhe" have the following original features:

  • 5 lacing eyelets and 4 hooks for lacing.
  • Toe area is reversed leather (roughout or flesh side).
  • The sides and heel sections are smooth leather.
  • The side panels are sewn to the front toe section with double white stitching.
  • Leather vertical strip on the back of the heel reinforces the back and joins the two side panels together, for comfort there is a second strip of smooth leather on the inside.
  • Leather sole is stitched and pegged onto the boot.
  • Heel has metal horse shoe.
  • The rest of the boot has the correct shaped hob nail studs and a correct shaped toe clip/plate.
  • The leather has been left in the natural colour so you can easily polish to which ever colour you want, because they are natural colour they show marks easier until you apply the polish so there may be some marks on the boots from when they where made or from shipping, which will be covered once any polish is applied.
  • Hand made in Europe.
