DESCRIPTION

An Original Pair of  WW2 German Air Force Tropical Short Boots (Luftwaffe kurze Tropenstiefel).

Made of cotton web material and brown leather, Tropical boots were designed to better survive the wild temperature variations that occurred in tropical climates.

This pair are stained blue, indicating Air Force issue. When the Luftwaffe first went to Africa, their equipment and uniforms were blue in colour. This was quickly found to be impractical in the desert, and olive green or khaki soon replaced it.

Items such as this continued to be manufactured and were used from that time, in a wide variety of campaigns from Southern Russia to the South of France. Particularly favoured by paratroops and other field units because they were lighter in weight and easier to maintain than the all leather versions.

These are very rare, especially in blue.

Boots have the original soles, with the metal studs, toe plates, and heel surrounds.

Marked 29 over 6 on each sole.

Inside each boot on the ankle reinforcing strip is what appears to be an RB Number (Reichbetriebsnummer - manufacturer's identifier). Unfortunately, it is partially unreadable.

The boots also have their original leather laces.and all the eyelets are present and complete.

A Rare pair of boots in very good used condition.
