British Cold Weather Combat Boots, Gore-Tex, surplus
Winter is coming, embrace it! These Cold Weather Combat Boots with Gore-Tex lining are a top choice for winter conditions. Narrow sizes available! All in unissued shape.
When the ground is cold, your feet can lose quite a bit of heat by conducting it to the surface. These military boots feature a thick PU outsole with insulating layers to keep your feet warm. The tread is coarse with a soft compound to maintain grip in freezing conditions. Apparently the soles are meant to be used on snow only - walking in normal conditions will wear it out very fast.
The instep has regular grommets, followed by locking tunnels (not hooks!) and speed tunnels. This allows you to adjust the boots quickly to your feet. The shaft ends in comfy padding and has a sturdy leather pull-loop.
The toebox has a semi-rigid reinforcement and the tongue is thick for further comfort.
These shoes come in three last widths: Small, Medium and Large. They are the same as the US-designated Narrow, Regular and Wide.
In a nutshell, narrow versions have the width of one size down on the regular scale, wide ones have the width of one size up. I.E. a pair of boots in size 9S are as long as a 9M but as wide as an 8M. A 7L is as long as a 7M but as wide as an 8M.
If you regularly try to fit boots and shoes and feel that they don't hug your feet tight enough, and when you finally get a good fit your toes hit the front, then you'll probably be happy with the narrow S-lasts.

These boots are lined with Gore-Tex, so be sure to avoid just any leather care products you might have laying around. Use only shoe polish made for Gore-Tex footwear to avoid blocking the pores on the membrane.
Being full-leather boots, these are easy to clean with lukewarm water, mild soap and a brush. Treat with an impregnation spray while damp, let dry and finish the job with the creme or polish of your choice.
The service life of any footwear can be extended by alternating between two pairs of boots to let one pair dry for a full night and day before wearing them again.
British army surplus
Made to very high standards with a genuine Gore-Tex membrane, high-quality leather and painstaking double-stitching all around. Unissued condition, most of the boots came to us in their original boxes. If you have concerns about the sole, one option is to take the shoes to a cobbler who can grind down the tread pattern and glue on harder rubber for more durable traction surfaces.

Pidän tällaisen tavaran myymistä hieman ”moraalittomana” ainakin tuohon hintaan.
