Heer / Waffen-SS Gaiters


Heer / Waffen-SS Gaiters


Regulations in November 1939 shortened the tall leather marching boot in an attempt to conserve leather. In early 1940 the lace-up ankle boots were first introduced as a further leather conservation method and by 1941 the ankle boot was issued to all new recruits in place of the marching boot. By 1943 with escalating leather shortages the gaiters and lace up ankle boots were issued to all replacement personnel and manufacture of the tall marching boots was discontinued altogether.


This pair of gaiters is made of olive green / field-grey canvas with machine stitched seams, black leather and metal fittings. In overall very good condition with light signs of age and use.


Very nice pair!!
