Caliber 35 did a few years ago, but they are apparently out of production. Does anyone else make one?

Why not make your own? Use an old boot from a figure or shape one from styrene stock.

I know a guy that carved one from a potato!

Liang also makes them, but last time I checked they could be ordered only through Facebook:

By the way Liang has also a set of hands.

Hi! My first post here so apologies is if step on any toes but...
The bootprint tools at the posted links are incorrect for WW2 US. No US troops had anything resembling Vibram soles, with the exception of jungle boots. The jungle boots were not widely issued.

Welcome and thanks for the comment but... which link are you referring to? There are three for different brands on this thread!

Every live link in this thread shows US WW2 boots with Vibram type soles. As I said those were only to be found on the scarce jungle boots.
The boots second from left are jump boots. Those on the extreme right are Army combat boots. The soles were the same for both the early boots worn with canvas leggings and the later double buckle boots.

I’m going to hijack my own thread here. Can anyone show me the tread pattern on German boots worn by Leo 2A4/5/6 tankers?

Thanks. Lee

I couldn't find any Bundeswehr tanker boots. The question is...Did those tankers have a specialized tanker boot or did they wear the same combat boots as their infantry?

Problem is that german soldiers have a certain liberty with their footwear. Some purchase civilian boots for convenience.
