They are indeed "Metalglass 800" and I should have been on the 198 like you but the 203 was a never used demo and was a few bucks cheaper
If I remember correctly, the boots that I used with those SL's in 1966/67 were the Henke "Speed Fit" race boots. They were a hybrid combo of plastic and leather with a "custom" foam blown inner liner.
Prior to that I was on very base model Raichle (sp.) ... all leather with real buckles ... all before those two were lace ups; what a treat not to have to lace up twice per foot.
... the "good ol' days" ..... wet feet and laces ..
