REPRODUCTION & VG Cond Afrika Korps 3rd Pattern Tall Desert Boots (Size 45). This is a pair of the REPRODUCTION "3rd Pattern" Afrika Korps tall desert boots. Being a novice collector at the time, I assumed this were genuine WWII DAK issue. However, subsequent investigation online and from experts such as Bruce Herman of the Grenadier Auctions has led me to sadly conclude that these boots were likely fabricated in Czechoslovakia due to the water stained soles and a number of other indicia like the grommets on the underside of the speed-lace hooks.
Oh well, live and learn. However, the boots were well made and are a "human size" 45, which is equivalent to an American size 10.5.I, in fact, tried them on once and they were indeed 10.5, which is my shoe size. I've taken what I hope will be an adequate number of pictures which show the details of the boots.
However, if anyone out there would like additional images of particular aspects of the boots, I would be happy to add them or send them to you. I'm a militaria collector like you and I do this as a sideline to my own collecting.
