Obey Wann posted about a sale for Men's East German Leather Boots for $30 on the Rebel Trooper's forum.

It's an awesome sale, though they are Men's boots so girls would have to figure out their size in Men's. Smile

If I remember correctly, my research into the size differences for these E. German boots (compared to American sizing charts) may make them a tad on the small side. I'm not sure how sportsmans guide did the size conversion. That may be something you want to check out before purchasing, or order the next size up if your feet are pushing the limits of what size you normally wear. That should give you the room to insert some good cushion or gel insoles as well, since these surplus German military boots were not really made for comfort.

Wish I could afford to buy a pair now.

Since these are an inch short, would they pass for pilot boots as well? or only RFT?
