Soviet officer's field boots #2
Soviet officer's field boots, a nice pair of traditional military / old time footwear. Made thick and strong leather with nailed-on sole, with rubber tap heels. One-off pair! Russian leather boots are usually made of very strong materials, with a traditional look to them.
These extend just below the knee. Inside the shaft these have a partial leather lining. This kind of quality cannot be found these days from any store, you would have to order a custom pair. We would suggest having a cobbler install a pair of low-profile rubber half-soles on the front. This would virtually eliminate the wear on the leather sole. These boots are all ready for such a procedure!
The size is 40 (255 mm), with a Russian "wide" last. User's recommended foot length 255 mm. Measure yours by placing your foot on paper and drawing the outline. Then measure the longest distance from heel to toe.
No insoled included. These have room for double socks. In the pictures you can see the template insole which we used to determine the inside length of the shoe (plus just a few millimetres to both directions).
39 cm circumference on the mouth of the shaft. Height from ground to top 44 cm.
Used, but pretty gently overall, with good supple leather. The heel rubbers still have plenty of life to them before they have to be changed, but we would recommend installing the rubber half-soles on the front, as leather is pretty slippery and wears way faster than rubber.
We occasionally get random pairs of Soviet/Russian boots in stock, these are sold as one-off pairs so you know exactly what you get.
