Used E. German Officer's boots

Thanks for the update. Just ordered a pair. Very versatile item. Could be used for XWing pilots, TIE Pilots, Imp Officers, Han, Darth, ohter imps...

....thank the maker that there was an East German Officer with size 13 flippers. :p

Hopefully, they're in good shape.

Thanks for the heads up Weaselfinger.

Sorry the pilots wore mid calf boots with a buckle at the top. Its acceptable for a pilot, and a great price, but technically not screen accurate for them.

How do the sized run?
Are they true to US sizes or is ther some sort of conversion needed.?

I wear 10.5 so I know the 11's would fit but would I benefit from larger boots?

Man, $33 shipped. That's a steal. Thanks for the heads-up.

After marching three miles in stiff Russian boots that were apparently made for goose-stepping , I'd err on the side of caution. :D It's a lot easier to put in an insole and wear two pairs of socks than it is to have the boots stretched. The US sizes on the site have already been converted but they should be pretty close. They'll probably run a little narrow though.

Yeah, I wouldn't expect "buttery soft" leather either....I'm going to work in some mink oil or similar stuff to soften these up before wearing...

These boots aren't bad at all, I got a brand new pair from an army/navy store in 96 for $5 bucks. The leather is not super hard, they are actually pretty comfy. I use them now for Vader display, the only thing that I don't like about them is they have a peagravel texture to the leather .

oooh, these are tempting . . .

I have a pair of pepple-grain russian goose-steppers that are looking pretty good with my Luke ROTJ costume (or the 90% of it that's done as of yesterday, at least), but these would look a lot better.

OMG. They actually had my size 12's in stock. ordered, confirmed, PAID FOR.

Don't hesitate, guys and gals... this is a rare opportunity at this price.

...must...read...fine...print... :)

Okay, they're 15 1/2" high, which makes them a little short for Solo boots. But at $25 a pair, that's still a great deal.
