M1935 German Officer boots.These 100% leather boots are made especially for us in Germany by one of the last makers of real leather riding boots in Europe. These fine leather riding boots are made of genuine cow hide leather, lined with calf’s skin and come complete with leather soles heels. They have a beautiful, smooth polished finish and at almost 20 inches tall, they are perfect for wear with Riding Breeches. The perfect boot for any officer or Cavalry impression. Shafts have approximately 16 inch circumference and approximately 20 inches tall.
Officers’ boots were knee-high and more form-fitting, and (as usual) often private purchases of superior quality. They were to be worn with breeches; however, these technically were not “riding” boots, differing somewhat from the Reitstiefel worn (with spurs) by regiments with cavalry traditions.By order dated 31 October 1939 most officers in the front lines wore the shorter EM boots with Langhosen or Keilhosen, but some ignored regulations and wore their kneeboots anyway.
