Early pattern tropical Heer low boots

Well folks, I wasn’t quick enough to get these, but I’ve posted some photos which show in detail a rare pair of
surviving early pattern tropical Heer boots (manufactured by Bata), which were sold very recently via a dealer’s website.

This is the first pair of early pattern tropical boots that I’ve seen for sale on the open market and these were snapped
up very quickly at the price of Euro 1,400.  Despite the damage to the eyelets and speed hooks I reckon this was a
pretty good deal considering the rarity of these particular boots.

Thanks to Dermot (DAK D) for bringing these to my attention smile 

Regards Markus.
