A pair of Austrian Bundesheer combat boots of a bit more modern manufacture. If you like your shoes warm, stiff and with good support, get these. In the world of GTX footwear boots with leather lining are a rarity.

  • Full leather construction
  • Waterproof membrane (for which we can't give a 100 % functionality guarantee)
  • Slightly stiffer sole than usual (3/4)
  • D-ring lacing on the lower part, hooks on the upper
  • Bellowed, padded tongue
  • Proper good fit
  • Enough room for double socks
  • Weight about 2.3 kg for a pair
  • Sizes run slightly small!

Sometime during the 2000's the Austrian army got rid of their old school full leather combat boots and like many others, started fielding modern GTX boots instead. Although not as cool looking as the older stuff, these are definitely more ergonomic.

These look like most run-of-the-mill combat boots made today, but made to be suitable for the uneven terrain of Austria. This means they're a bit stiffer than usual and give a great support for your feet. A broken ankle does not affect only one soldier, so it's to be taken seriously!

The tough construction makes these rather heavy when compared to civilian stuff. However they're pretty heavy duty and very affordable for what they are.

Size info

Manufactured to European size specs. The sizing is somewhat tight so if you're often between two sizes, strongly consider the larger one in this case. Here's a table to help you compare it to true US sizes.

Conversion table

EU-sizeLength of footUS-size
36227 mmUS 5*
37233 mmUS 5.5
38240 mmUS 6.5
39247 mmUS 7
40253 mmUS 8
41260 mmUS 9*
42267 mmUS 9.5
43273 mmUS 10.5*
44280 mmUS 11
45287 mmUS 12
46293 mmUS 12.5
47300 mmUS 13.5
48307 mmUS 14.5*

* This size falls in between half and full sizes of the US system and our chart indicates the larger US-size. The rounding is just 2 mm (0.08") so the boot is still going to be large enough.

Care and maintenance

Wash with gall soap (aka. bile soap) or just your regular hand soap with lots of water and a brush. Don't dry in sunlight or high heat, do take out for a walk. When the boots are moist, they are most hospitable to shoe creme. This gives you a basic level that you can finish as you please.

Remember to use only products meant for GTX boots!

Warranty info

These are not covered by the manufacturer at this point. However, you should not be disappointed with these. If you run into a lemon, let us know and we'll sort it out.

Austrian military surplus

Used for sure, but in a good condition and serviceable with lots of miles to go with the treads. A note about the membrane: as these are used and we don't have the time or resources to soak, test, dry and polish each and every pair, we cannot give a 100 % guarantee of functionality for it. That said, it will probably work just fine.

Some pairs may have a small tag-hole punched through at the top of the shaft or tongue. Most also have a white X made with a crayon to the toe box or heel. It'll come off with use, brushing, and care.

It is worth knowing that military surplus boots don’t usually come with insoles, and even if they do have them, they are often used. So, get a good pair of insoles at the same time. For example, from us.

Mahtavat kengät, minun kokemuksella lähes täysin vedenpitävät. Kuntokin on kiitettävä kunhan saappaat lankkaa hyvin, kenkien mukavuus on myös hyvä. Tosiaankin pohjallinen meni heti vaihtoon, mutta se olikin odotettavaa.
