Heer Issue Winter Boots

 

 

The felt and leather boots were originally introduced after the first devastating winter in Russian as the standard leather marching boots didn’t provide the warmth required in the extreme cold. The felt and leather boots came in two styles with a lighter weight style which offered warmth and enabled the wearer to retain a degree of mobility and a second heavier felt and leather over-boot intended for wear by stationary guards and sentinels.

 

The boots is made of coarsely woven, grey wool and leather. Stacked, pressed leather soles and heels with metal fittings. Inside still with original canvas constructed pull tabs. Length is 31cm. This is a perfect matching pair in very good condition.
