Bundesmarine jackboots, surplus
Although traditional leather jackboots weren't a large part of the image of the Bundesrepublik Deutschland, nothing stopped them from making them. These are German navy issue boots.
Don't be fooled by the approachable looks - these are very German, with their impeccable quality, full leather construction and hard soles. They can be instantly recognized as West German boots from the tread pattern and "democracy buckles" at the mouth of the shaft (NVA and Wehrmacht boots generally didn't have them). Some have the old BW sole, some have the newer model 2000 sole. Both can be repaired or replaced by a proper cobbler.
For maintenance we would recommend occasionally applying polish or grease. Considering their utilitarian general style, grease would probably be the better option. That's pretty much it. Don't overdo it, a modest layer is usually enough.
First the boot's inside length from heel to toe in millimetres, with corresponding euro sizes in the brackets. If you are not sure what you're doing, order by the EU size. These are somewhat generously sized, with room for insoles and wool socks, as one would expect from proper ol' boots. Don't even try to use some tennis socks with these. In fact, if you have any, ditch them and get wool socks anyway!
In used, but serviceable condition. While the uppers are all good to go for a loooong time, the glue holding the rubber soles in place might have lost its grip over the years and they might peel off. This is remedied by finding the nearest cobbler's shop and having them either glued back on or just getting a pair of new-made half soles clamped on. Simple!
