These vintage boots are European, made in the 1930s-1940s. I was sold they were reindeer fur when I bought them, and the look consistent with that to me. They have pegged leather soles and rubber covered heels. The square toe looks like ski boots of the period, but they do not have the grooved heel sides that I generally associate with that style. The sole measures 12-1/2″ long and 4-7/16″ wide.
