One can't help mentioning the jump boots, used by the agents of "Stasi" (The Ministry of State Security of the GDR). Lacing system consisted of ten pairs of round eyelets. Lower lacing provided more flexible and firm fixation on the feet, they are stitched across the surface of the top. The sole and tread pattern of such boots match the jump boots of types from 1 to 4, the sole is glued and stitched to the boots top.

The photos show the jump boots, used in the period from mid to late 1980s. They differ from the NVA jump boots in appearance and made more efficiently and accurately, according to individual sizes and by special order on a special shoe company in the East German town of Suhl. Those, who have used to wear the East German "Stasi" jump boots usually impress the best opinions about them on web forums. In fact, such boots were extremely comfortable and reliable.
