Almost a rarity nowadays - genuine Bundeswehr leather jackboots, or "Marschstiefel". Only a very small lot available.
A very honest, no-bullshit jackboot made of tough leather. The outer soles are hard rubber, sometimes with steel heel piece and sometimes an aggressive looking steel reinforcement plate has been clamped on to the nose. Additionally, the shaft can be tightened with a "democracy buckle" (on the other side of the wall they didn't have those, and neither did Hitler's Wehrmacht, so that's probably the origin of the nickname).
These represent the old way of thinking: it doesn't have to be fast and breathable, it just has to last. Just replace the heel piece and half-sole when they are worn enough and you're good to go again. And well, since these are decades old, used and still in OK serviceable shape, there's no questioning their durability.
Sizes in the standard euro/French system.
Properly used. Means there will be wear on the soles accompanied by any normal scuffs and scratches and whatever. The leather is stiff, grease it up to get it back to shape. Overall these do need some cleaning.
As a special note, the glue holding the rubber tap soles in place might have lost its grip over the years and they will peel off easily. This is remedied by finding the nearest cobbler's shop and having them either glued back on or just getting a pair of new-made half soles clamped on. Simple!
