British Boot Combat High, surplus
Issue British Army combat boots. Older model, the kind that actually was pretty stylish compared to modern sneakers. Used.
Very traditional black, full leather combat boots with full rubber DMS sole. Miles ahead of the old "Boots DMS", mainly by the fact that these have a bellowed tongue, so you can at least theoretically waterproof them.
The one-piece rubber sole is directly moulded on to the boot, and will probably never come off. This means it doesn't have any shock absorption features. It's also quite slippery in freezing temperatures. On the other hand it's very tough and has a long service life. Everything's a tradeoff!
Treat these with shoe polish and/or grease. Many times these have some pretty serious layers of old polish on them, because Brits. Just look at our pictures.
Sizes by the recommended foot length in millimetres, with a comparable EU/French size behind. Sizes actually run rather large. It's best to measure your foot and pick by the results you get. Place your foot on a paper and draw its outline. Measure the longest distance from heel to toe. If you fall between sizes, round up.
Real deal Brit surplus
In used, but serviceable condition. The degree of use varies, but all are intact and serviceable. Being DMS soled, these have a very long service life - when the sole slowly wears thin, just get it touched up by a cobbler.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
