Almost a rarity nowadays - genuine Bundeswehr leather jackboots, or "Marschstiefel". Only a very small lot available.

A very honest, no-bullshit jackboot made of tough leather. The outer soles are hard rubber, sometimes with steel heel piece and sometimes an aggressive looking steel reinforcement plate has been clamped on to the nose. Additionally, the shaft can be tightened with a "democracy buckle" (on the other side of the wall they didn't have those, and neither did Hitler's Wehrmacht, so that's probably the origin of the nickname).

These represent the old way of thinking: it doesn't have to be fast and breathable, it just has to last. Just replace the heel piece and half-sole when they are worn enough and you're good to go again. And well, since these are decades old, used and still in OK serviceable shape, there's no questioning their durability.

Size info

Sizes in the standard euro/French system.


Properly used. Means there will be wear on the soles accompanied by any normal scuffs and scratches and whatever. The leather is stiff, grease it up to get it back to shape. Overall these do need some cleaning.

As a special note, the glue holding the rubber tap soles in place might have lost its grip over the years and they will peel off easily. 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!

Mullon just tällaiset, ja ovat maailman lujimmat nahkasaappaat jos näitä hoitaa asianmukaisesti. Omani ovat olleet minulla 30 vuotta, ja ovat edelleen yhtä hyvät kuin ne käytettyinä ostin. Ovat aikamoisen kovat kopurat, ja näissä saa olla mahdollisimman hyvät pohjalliset, ja menee hieman aikaa, että mukautuvat jalkaan ja jalat tottuvat näihin. Omani ovat myös kapealestiset, joten eivät sovellu kovin kylmään. Ja jos saappaasi ovat varustetut sellaisilla pohjilla kuin ensimmäisessä kuvassa, voin sanoa varmuudella, että ovat liukkaat talvella, mutta tähän auttaa kun suutarilla vaihdattaa pitävämmät pohja- ja kantalaput. Nämä ovat paremmat kuin suomen armeijan nahkasaappaat käytettyinä, jotka minulla päätyivät roskiin, koska hiersivät kantapäätä. Jos haluat saappaat jotka hoidettuina kestävät vuosikymmeniä, niin voin lainata Tuntematonta sotilasta ja sanoa, että Täs Siul on Sellaaset, kunhan vain koko natsaa.

These boots are awesome! Super heavy leather and overall bomb proof construction. Mine look better than the ones pictured. Very dry, soaking up grease like nobody's business. Like the Finnish jackboots they really need the Jalas insoles to be comfortable. Great purchase!

Absolutely met expectations as far as material quality, but arrived with one heel quite loose and a nail sticking through the half sole around the instep, only just barely poking through the insole (and didn’t get through my wool socks at first try-on), found it when I pulled the (very worn) insoles and it snagged.
I bought size 42, as I wear 42’s Doc Martens and Keens, my feet are short, closer to 40’s but also very wide ducky things so I’m forced to size up - the 42 jackboots are longer than my Docs but narrow, almost too snug through the bridge with double socks. Maybe German dudes usually have narrow feet? Leather is heavy and stiff, drinking the grease like an Icelander drinks Brennevin. Once they’ve formed to my feet I’ll probably revise this review.

These jackboots are grade 2 boots. I bought two pairs recently. The soles are okay, but the heels are worn to a certain extent. The leather, especially on one pair, is stiff and shows repairs, scars, deep cuts, and so on. I used a lot of premium neatsfoot oil to soften this old leather. I'll have to restitch some pieces with a good thread using saddler's techniques. It's up to you to decide whether it's still worth buying these jackboots.
