 The M1940 First Pattern Tropical Boot (Model 1940) is a combat boot of German origin.[3]


The M1940 First Pattern Tropical boots were the first model of tropical boots produced by Nazi Germany. They were intended for the arid conditions of North Africa and as such were used during the North African Campaign. The M1940 Boot was the basis for the later M1941 Second Pattern Tropical Boot.
