    Default Boot Identification?

    I bought a pair of barely used leather sheepskin lined open fronts on consignment today, was wondering if anyone recognized the brand logo.... they were being sold as "HB" boots, but it looks more like an "F" to me than an H. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Here is the logo

    That pretty clearly reads HB to me; If you saw an F like I did when I stared at it hard enough, then the rest of the word spells "flob"
    And this is the story of your red right ankle.

    based on the color of the elastic, I would guessss they're made by Hulsebos (?)

    It is not Hulsebos' logo; which is JH for Jan Hulsebos.

    And I see H B too.

    I definitely see an HB. Not sure what brand that is though.

    I would venture HB should have been HR....For Henri de Rivel. Unfortunately, many vendors outsource their work to China etc., and you would be amazed by what can be lost in translation.

    The HDR stuff I have is branded as such: HDR, in a non cursive font. Plus I don't think HDR makes boots...

    HDR does make boots but they are not stamped like that.

    Is it possible that someone had them "monogrammed" with their initials, which were HB?
