Military History/german uniform

Question
My uncle fought in WWII. He brought back with him a german uniform article of clothing that I can not identify. They appear to be a type of calf support, worn above the boots. They are black leather, with 3 buckles to snug down to leg. I can not locate anywhere on the internet. Any ideas on the name for these, and what they may be worth ?  Thanks

Answer
Hello, I'm no expert on German items , sorry , but I have a suggestion what they "may" be , I'm thinking some sort of riding equiptment for the Horse type soldiers the German army had , I would suggest you try these sites(Forums) and a photo would also help in a big way if possible !

Good luck and hope this helps !
