Shoe brush, dual action
A two-sided shoe brush - the smaller brush is for applying shoe polish, the larger one for polishing.
TACCO Player insoles
The Player insoles were originally designed for sports, and since War is the greatest of all sports, we can recommend these for use with combat boots aswell.
Palc honey leather grease, 50 ml
Proper grease for all kinds of leathers. Essential for maintaining footwear, for instance. 50 ml in a small tin. Smells a bit like honey. Not recommended for anything with a membrane (e.g. Gore-Tex).
Tallipoika leather grease, 500 ml, black
A large half a litre bucket of black leather grease, just as good as any fine brand, but without a fancy name and thus cheaper, a lot cheaper.
Särmä merino socks
If you still use cotton socks, dump them now and get these instead. These are superb for outdoor use, but work just as well as formal wear too! These aren't thick, so they can be used around the year. Made with our own specs in Finland.
SealSkinz Walking Thin Mid Socks
Like with any part of clothing, it's only sensible to separate different layers for footwear too. These offer the waterproof, breathable membrane in sock form. In short, with SealSkinz socks you can turn any ol' boot or piss skater into waterproof footwear. Properly made, well tested, tried and true, SealSkinz is a brand you can trust!
For those with either small or large feet, we have good news! These unissued full leather & solid rubber soled combat boots are a dying breed in the days of cushioned throw-away fluffiness.
Very simple and robust construction: a directly moulded rubber sole, full leather upper, speed lacing and a pretty nice fit. Not much lining, as your socks will do that. The overall experience isn't as comfy as with cushion soled shoes, but in turn these will last a looong time, and even then can probably be repaired to a degree.
First the traditional EU/French size with a letter denoting width. Then the same in Mondopoint system: the exact foot length in millimeters (not shoe sole, the FOOT), then width measured at the ball of the foot. The fit is pretty tight for a military boot - as in, there's not much room for very thick socks. We do recommend insoles to go with these (Jalas FX2 is nice, pick the same size as the boots) as there are none inside out of the box.
In totally unworn shape. Probably made in the 90's or something, just stored away till now. These are the kind of boots that go against all the marketing dogma, as they take ages to wear out.
