Alpina Desert Black
We suggest you get these too
Woly Protector 3 x 3 impregnation spray, 300 ml
This Woly preservative is designed to be used with all sorts of leather and textiles. This stuff is both dirt and water repellent.
Särmä merino socks
If you still use cotton socks, dump them now and get these instead. These are superb for outdoor use, but work just as well as formal wear too! These aren't thick, so they can be used around the year. Made with our own specs in Finland.
SealSkinz Walking Thin Mid Socks
Like with any part of clothing, it's only sensible to separate different layers for footwear too. These offer the waterproof, breathable membrane in sock form. In short, with SealSkinz socks you can turn any ol' boot or piss skater into waterproof footwear. Properly made, well tested, tried and true, SealSkinz is a brand you can trust!

Shoe brush, dual action
A two-sided shoe brush - the smaller brush is for applying shoe polish, the larger one for polishing.
Palc Shoe Polish, 50 ml
The Spanish Palc charmed us with their shoe grease, so we decided to get proper good shoe polish from the same manufacturer. No kidding, this stuff is grand!
Särmä TST boot socks, merino wool
The Finnish army boots socks are real good, but make them out of quality merino wool and they get even better! Just like our army issue socks, but a little better in every way. The natural moisture wicking properties of merino wool make these a viable option for around the year use.
Holy shit, they took the classic US Jungle Boot, brought it to modern age, coloured it black and removed the drainage holes! Thus is born the perfect warm/mild weather boot as the name implies, but in black for general use. Too good to be true? Well it is - this is a one-off surplus lot from a Slovenian army boot purchase, because OF COURSE it is.
Modern, shock-absorbing sole construction, leather lower, nylon upper & tongue, sensible quick-lacing system and good adjustable fit for thin socks or double socks, whatever the situation demands. Very little lining with no membranes at all, making the boot more breathable and versatile for different conditions. Add waterproof socks and gaiters and your feet will stay dry even in wet weather. While these are not really meant for winter use, they do work in that at least better than your average floppy sneakers!
Sizes in the Euro system. The last could be described as quite wide. The size range we got is rather limited especially in the usual men's sizes. For women and men with small feet these are a godsend.
Manufactured by Alpina
Made in Slovenia. These are apparently "2nd quality" which seemingly manifests as some cosmetic imperfections, nothing major, especially in boots made for rough use anyway.
