A pair of vintage Swedish Army riding boots. We estimate that they are from the 70/80s and they are in great condition given that they have been around for decades.
The black leather is well polished and it's clear that their former owner have taken good care of them. The leather has a few scratches visible on the pictures and adding outsoles to them is probably a good idea. We believe that the boots have been cropped at some time, based on the fact that we have only seen higher variants from the Swedish army before. The work is well done and the current length sure makes them more suitable for everyday use!
Regarding the size the boots have no markings that we can decipher but there is a pair of leather soles in them that are sized EUR 44 / US 10,5. Douglas wears US 10 on Red Wing and other boots and these work for him but would probably fit best if you are a US 9,5 and have and have narrow feets.
The outer sole measures 31 cm from heel to toe and the sole measures 11,2 cm at its widest at the front of the shoe.
