So, Svec won't be able to finish a pair of GJ boots for me in time, any other sources for a good pair of boots?

Herr Oberfähnrich , or is it " big foot " ? :wink: Well , is it for the event mid January ? I'm afraid I'm only a size 45 , so my spare pair won't fit.....I have that pair of Swiss army boots you sold me a while ago ? There is Joky, and the Spanish company , wehrmacht.es ....they have a pair of Swiss army , size 46..

It's very late in the year unfortunately .. :| And a bit close to Christmas ...have you asked Bruno ?

Stabs Halle,

I'm a Leutnant for the Event, all the Oberfähnrichs for those units were in school during that time. I'll be GJ, but in field dress uniform, so riding boots!

No I need the boots for PE17 I have a pair of Swiss boots, but want the German ones. I'm a 45 as well.

MY rating:

Comfort: 9/10

Leather: 8/10

Attention to detail: 8/10 (would give higher but the green rim around the top should be a different material)

Nail job: 8/10 (Couple nails could have been done better)

Test: 5h hike on a really rocky path that would tear up any normal shoes. And is not really meant for these boots as one is slipping and sliding on the jagged rocks...

Results are minor scuffs on the leather, minor indents on the soles and lost one nail. Overall pretty good for the conditions.

In the end, for €350, I say it's a fair buy and would do it again.
