H040972 BOOT PULL-ON HOOKS. (Schuhhaken)

BACKGROUND: Besides the helmet, the tall Marching/Jack boots are probably one of the most instantly recognizable items of the German military. Due to their height the tall boots were generally worn with a snug fit on the calves making them difficult to put them on which resulted in the inclusion of fabric pull tabs to the interior of the top edges of each boot. For easy access to the interior fabric pulls tabs special boot pull-on hooks were developed. The boot pull-on hooks were a private purchase item and were widely used.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The hooks consist of two, roughly, 15cm long, vertical, solid tubular steel rods with a nickel/silver plated finish with horizontal extended hooks to the bottom edges and a roughly, 9cm long, lathed, stained, horizontal hardwood handle to the top edges. The tubular rods are inserted into the bottom edges of the handles and secured by a single dome headed rivet. The hooks are both in overall good condition with small areas of light to moderate surface spotting. The hooks have no visible manufacturers markings. Neat personal footwear accessory.
