Guys;
I have seen a couple of pairs of boots on ebay that the seller calls MVSN boots, but they look like RN deck books or RAF boots. Black with no cap on the toe, that type of thing. Did the MVSN have there own boots or is this just someones idea of "its ebay so who really cares"? The seller is out of Italy, and does have nice stuff every once in a while, but I am just not sure of this. What do you guys think?

Anything is possible, but these don't have any design/features that I could say make them Italian. I have seen the combination of eyelet and speed lacing before, but never with an eyelet above the speed lace. The heel cap isn't a typical Italian shape. The lack of the toe cap. The boots look very modern.

Overall, I have found Dharma a good vendor. I have purchase items from him before. But there is nothing that indicates that these are WWII Italian. The price is even scary to me. That being said, I certainly have not seen everything made for the Italian military in WWII. I would pass just because of the uncertainty. If I did buy them, I would do so knowing they are an inexpensive pair of boots that likely aren't WWII Italian.

My opinion.

Pista!

The same Seller sells also English Shoes. And they are similar ( if not the same) .. I used for MVSN Reenactment British Shoes with Italian Vibram Sole ( Carro armato).

Has anyone bought boots from M1 Enrico?

I've bought a helmet from him and I was very pleased. I'm also going to order a Sahariana and an M42 cap from him in the future. He told me that this tailor in Italy makes all the Italian uniform items from him.

These are the same boots Sartoria Equipe offers. I don't know if Enrico buys his boots from Remo, or whether they both buy from the same cobbler. I am pretty sure that the uniforms are also from SE.

I don't know whether there is a difference when ordering from either SE or Enrico (which is cheaper/faster). If Enrico keeps a stock of items, he might be quicker.

The boots are excellent BTW.

Pista!

Yep, it's confirmed! Enrico gets his uniform items from Remo!

I really like the boots, they look ace, I'll probably order a couple this spring.

Glenning,

Do you know how much Enrico's boots cost?

I looked on his website and couldn't find a price for them ...or anything else for that matter. :unsure:

Amici,
Too bad things didn't work out with Mattermore Harness, he made a pretty good if not perfect M1912 boot, and at that time was working on making Alpini ones also. Looks like nowadays the only source for boots is Remo and the SE..

I have recently read several positive comments from German reenactors about Matterhorn Harness (aka Civilwar Boots) on AHF. It is possible that Tom has gotten his act back together. I don't know. He is definitely still in business.
