This week I saw an auction with a fixed price about this boots and it was instantly sold, luckily the seller had another one and I was quicker this time.

The seller got this boots right out of an barn from a friend in Sweden.

Amazing craftsmanship and I guess after some wear and break in he will look awesome. The only thing which troubles me is the leather sole and the iron  parts on it. See the image of the heel, it has a iron rim like a horseshoe. I think about putting a rubber sole onto them, what do you think?

I managed to get some more of this boots, a model from 1943 a bit different design,  leather and I modified it now with a rubber sole.

The only reference I could find about a similar boot is:
Swedish army boot from 1943 on Fedora Lounge. 

If you are interested in this boot, check this seller on ebay.

      not just an eye catcher although a ear catcher, jolly jumper style :) thanks for the advice, since I have no intentions to put them in a showroom i rather put rubber soles on them just to avoid to do the splits soon.

    i will, i will ! Actually they are easy to wear not stiff and hard to break in. The only thing is they are quite wide, so I need thick socks and it feels that there is a bit to much space on the heels.
