Vintage Rossiter boots on eBay.au

Size listed? Of course not. They don't look tall enough, but there's only one picture.

Hmmm. Nice catch.
These don't have belt loop tabs, but otherwise can accommodate the 2 sets of straps. Soles look to be resoles - pretty thick looking to me.
They're a great find - just make sure they aren't fleece-lined like most Rossi boots that show up online.

It also looks like they might be too short as Madmaximages said, but that could also just be the angle from the picture.
I just sent the seller a message asking the size and how tall they are. We'll see if they respond.

EDIT - I just heard back from the seller. These do seem to be the correct height. The size is UK/Aus 8, which supposedly translates to a U.S. 8 1/2. Probably too small for me since I usually wear a 9 (I have small feet, but not THAT small) but I'm now going to ask what the actual heel to toe measurement is. If I think I can squeeze into them, I may bid (unless they fit Scag66, since he chimed in first I'll back off if he wants them). And I know they won't fit Madmaximages (plus he's already got a pair of real ones...)

Cheers. :)

If you get the boots and need measurements for replacement straps, let me know.

Wow, those look like a totally different pair than the ones listed in the auction. Congratulations. Nice work.
