Finnish army leather jackboots. Getting hold of surplus leather jackboots is getting increasingly difficult these days. Used, abused, serviced when necessary. All good to go! Some boots are in unissued condition, these are listed separately: get them if they're your size!

The Finnish army has emptied stocks of used boots, but we found these elsewhere, of course for a higher price tag. Well, take it or leave it, these are still pretty cheap for what they are. No more will be made, and the prices will definitely not decrease.

The FDF jackboot is a very typical, well made and hard wearing example of its kind. These were on issue for a very, very long time, but some years ago released to the open market. Now they're getting increasingly difficult to get hold of, especially in popular sizes.

As said, the model is very basic: leather uppers with a leather sole and rubber outsole & heel piece. All put together with a clear example of a Goodyear welt. The leather in the boots is thick and of excellent quality, the stitches are made with strong thread, not some thin polyester string. Although they make pretty good boots today too, the craftsmen sure did make them tough in the old days and being surplus, these are pretty damn affordable for boots that will last a long time.

These are compatible with the old school ski bindings, by the way.

Size info

Sizes in the normal French (EU) system. These are designed to be used with footwraps or thick double woollen socks, so we suggest sticking to your actual size. If you plan to use these in extreme cold, take a size bigger to allow for a third layer of extra socks. In addition, the last is quite wide, as in all Finnish army footwear.

We heartily recommend Jalas FX2 insoles to go with these, they make a world of difference with these to people used to modern shoeware. Pick the same size as the boots. Conveniently, the measured lengths of the Jalas insoles gives some indication of the inside lengths of the boots themselves (the total inside length, remember to leave some room for your toes if you were already ordering by these numbers):

Condition

In used condition, but sometimes we get unissued boots from other sources (these are very rare nowadays!). On the used boots the part that takes most of the punishment, the sole, is repaired when necessary before these were put away. These came to us as they would have been issued to the troops in a real SHTF situation, so these are combat ready by the Finnish army specs! This means they may not be pretty at all, but are fit for purpose.

Made by Finnish army contractors, like Sievi, Jalas and some obscure company called no less than KKK. Probably some others too.

Ostin lähinnä huumorimielessä SA-kaupasta kun kerran sai halvalla. Ajattelin talvivaelluskengiksi, koska normaaliin vaelluskenkään ei mahdu kahta sukkaa+villasukkaa ja "lämpösaappaat" on huonot kävellä vaihtelevassa maastossa. Olen käyttänyt saappaita eri olosuhteissa/lämpötiloissa ja yllätyin kuinka hyvät monot ovat kyseessä verrattuna niistä kuuluihin arvioihin! Tilaa riittää joka on iso plussa talviaikana. Jos vielä käyttää paksua jalkarättiä (hyvä viritys talvella) niin ei tule ahdasta. Vaelluskenkien nyörien säätämiseen ja hampaat irveessä narujen kiristämiseen tottuneena saappaiden säätämisen helppous yllätti. Tiukka nilkka pitää saappaan tarpeeksi hyvin paikallaan. Pohja ei ole paras mahdollinen muodoltaan, mutta se ei haittaa niin kauan, kun ei kulje tasaisessa maastossa. Toisaalta liukkaus on toinen ongelma. Jos haluaa käyttää jalkineita kesälläkin, niin pohjallisen lisääminen pienentää tilavuutta juuri sopivasti kesäsukille.
Jos haluaa käytää 30€ hienoihin ja "ihan jees" retkikenkiin, niin suosittelen!

So glad I took the plunge and ordered a pair as soon as they came in stock. They have just arrived with me and they fit perfectly! I don't think I've ever had another boot feel so right on my foot before. The sole is unworn and the leather in good condition while being soft and supple, these should last me many years!

I am from a far away land where nobody wears shoes, which has blessed me with obscenely wide feet- which makes it very hard to find wide enough boots. I was amazed at the wide foot and the quality of the boots, especially the almost brand new heels. When i first put them on I didn't find them the most comfortable, but after fishing around inside the boot I removed what looked like the bottom of some poor Finnish soldiers feet, realizing that they were the soles, I swapped them out for a new pair and it completely transformed the boots! The leather is thick and soft, and came out great after a quick rub down with some boot wax. Absolute bargain!

These are impervious to weather. Had them for a year. Very comfortable boots. I'm a size 12, and I found the 42's tight on more than one pair of socks. Thinking about getting the tread replaced with something... treadier. All in all a solid boot.

Went by the given sizing table and got a pair that fits perfect, though just as scuffed as expected. Was able to dance to eurobeat in these, 5/5 would recommend.

5/5 jalkineet, monta vuotta säälimätöntä käyttöä. Varsinkin talvella ihan mahtavat. Näissä kengissä huolto ja huoli maksaa itseään takaisin ja saappaan rasvaaminen onkin suorastaan meditatiivinen iltapuhde. Näitä kannattaa ihan oikeasti käyttää jalkarättien kanssa, parantaa mukavuutta huomattavasti.

Kyllä ennen osattiin. Heitä ne avaruuslenkkarisi mäkeen.

Koot aikakaudelta jolloin 45 oli todellakin 45 eikä mikään tuluskukkaro! :D
Nykyään joudun uusia kenkiä ostaessani ottamaan suoraan koon 46, ehkä jopa 46 2/3 — näissä 44 on riittävä jos ei ole tarkoitus kaksia villasukkia sisään ahtaa :)

Riittävän tiukka nilkasta että pysyy jalassa hiukan hankalammassakin maastossa, pahaan kivikkoon kyllä ottaisin varsikengät.

Meidän piti ottaa aina varajalkineet kun täsypakkauksen kanssa liikkeelle lähdettiin — yön yli reissuilla yleensä vaihdoin lantsarit jatsareihin viimeistään ensimmäisenä yönä; hiosti huomattavasti vähemmän ja hoidettuna piti vettä riittävästi.
Joku skappari joskus katsoi kun muut kumi-, meikä nahkasaappaissa; mutta vain kerran jouduin vastaamaan kyselyyn ja vastaukseksi riitti kun väitin lantsareiden hörpänneen suovettä :D

Aivan mahtavat saappaat. Hyvässä kunnossa ja rasvaamisen jälkeen hyvän näköisetkin. Näillä kävelee vaikka Suomen päästä päähän. Niin ovat mukavat jalassa. Koko on vielä mukavan reilu joten saa villasukan hyvin mahtumaan jos toisenkin!!!
