Will be later


Gaiters to German WW2 ankle-boots. The pre-war gaiters had no reinforcements inside, but the bottom of the early gaiters was trimmed with a leather stripe. Later, a model appeared with crescent-shaped leather reinforcements where the gaiters are torn by the boots. Also, a rigid insert in the middle appeared later, so that the gaiters did not wrinkle when worn.

Unpainted original aluminum buckles are used. Thick reliable tarp. The stamp with the name of the manufacturer and year 1940 + size (in Roman numerals I, II, III, where I is the smallest).

Price for a pair (set for 1 person).

How to choose the size?

You need to put on shoes, trousers and measure the circumference of the leg right above the boot (on top of clothes!). For measurement, a flexible meter or belt (rope) is suitable, which must be tightened as tight as you are going to wear gaiters. Gaiters are regulated by leather straps with just 3 holes, so it is very important that the resulting circumference hits one of the spaces suggested in the table. Otherwise, the gaiters will be small or, even worse, large (they will hang out).
