For sale here is a great looking pair of WW2 German Black Leather Fur Lined Pilot / Crew Cold Weather or Altitude Flight Boots. The boots are a matched pair and are in amazing condition.The boots doe show age, wear, use, and some slight surface cracking, and a few scuffs, but rate very fine. Each boot has a functional Rapid zipper complete with leather pulls. All straps are complete and should be functional.
The only major issue that i can find is that one of the loop straps that holds the upper strap in place is broken. The brown fur inside is in good condition, but does show some soiling and wear, but it is not coming out. Both boots have a maker tag on the flap inside of the zipper, and both are marked LBAB 37, which i assume is the maker and date of 1937. Both tags have been written on and have the name Joe C. The left boot maker tag is damaged.
It should be noted that i have not worked all buckles or zipped the zippers all of the way down for fear of breaking something. I got these from a friend of mine who did wear these to ride motorcycles years ago. They feel plenty strong and supple to wear, but i would always be careful with the straps and zippers.
I wear a size 13 shoe, and my foot will fit in this boot without socks, so you should be safe if you are a US 12 or 12 1/2. The outside bottom of the boots measure 13 1/4" long and are 5" wide at the widest part of the toe. The soles show wear and age, and appear to be marked Wilop in the tread. This is a great and large pair of early Luftwaffe Flight Boots. They will be hard to upgrade and look great.Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
