Shoe brush, dual action
A two-sided shoe brush - the smaller brush is for applying shoe polish, the larger one for polishing.
Woly Protector 3 x 3 impregnation spray, 300 ml
This Woly preservative is designed to be used with all sorts of leather and textiles. This stuff is both dirt and water repellent.
Haix shoe care for Gore-Tex, 75 ml, black
Using regular shoe polish on Gore-Tex footwear might be a bad idea - some of the brands out there might block the membrane. Here's a safe bet, and made by HAIX, too.
Jalas FX2 insoles
The insole of the latest Finnish army combat boot is a giant leap forward from the old stuff. This is yet another step forward, with an additional cushion in the ball of the foot. "The best thing since sliced bread", as one of our employees has been heard exclaiming. Repeatedly.
Tuisku original anti-slip pads
Rubber thingies with metal studs which you pull over boots to increase traction on slippery ground. Available in different sizes.
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.
Särmä TST boot socks, merino wool
The Finnish army boots socks are real good, but make them out of quality merino wool and they get even better! Just like our army issue socks, but a little better in every way. The natural moisture wicking properties of merino wool make these a viable option for around the year use.
Särmä premium merino socks, heavyweight
Our vision of serious socks for demanding conditions like hiking and military use. Lightweight, durable & moisture wicking, well fit for summer, or winter too if you wear thicker socks over them - the knee-long shaft will also come in handy. Will not roll up in use.
Mil-Tec shoe laces, polyester, two pairs
Basic shoelaces made of polyester. Available in different lengths. You get two pairs per pack.
You take a sneaker, a bunch of German engineering, a traditional combat boot and mix them together. The result: hi-leg boots that work like running shoes, made extremely well of modern materials. Of course these also have the essential Gore-Tex membranes and stuff, and the fit & form are of course top notch. Upper made mostly of leather, this is the more "traditional" model of the Black Eagle lineup.
Black Eagle is the newer, athletic, sexier and lighter product line from Haix. Excellent fit, very intricately designed sole and tested materials make a versatile lightweight boot. It's also antistatic and has no metal parts.
- A large portion of the upper is made of leather with synthetic fabric on the tongue and a part of the shaft. Ankle protection on the sides.
- Moisture wicking Cambrelle lining on the inside.
- Hidden between the top and bottom layers is the waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane.
- Quick lacing with tunnel loops and lace locks. These are made of strong plastic.
- The lacing knot can be hidden inside a small flap on the top of the tongue.
- Height of the shaft 17 cm on the lowest part.
Probably the most intricately designed sole of Haix lineup - contains overall 10 components of cushioning and stiffening parts in a well balanced mix, and the outer sole not only has a good grip, but provides further protection for the nose. Haix advertises a nice grip on winter season too.
The insoles are equally fancy with some shock absorption and moisture wicking properties. Wash them in 30 degrees Celsius occasionally.
Brush dirt off, wipe with a moist rag and treat the boots with membrane-compatible shoe polish. You can also use protector spray if you wish, but it doesn't really nourish the leather. Never use regular shoe polish or grease with GTX boots, those might clog the membrane. They do treat the leather itself, of course.
It's best to take the insoles out of the boots after use to accelerate drying. We suggest not to dry the boots near a strong heat source as the materials might not like it.
You might want to try some proper nice socks to get the most out of the boots and minimize the chances of getting blisters.
First the UK size, then comparable Euro size in the brackets. The last width on these is somewhat closer to regular than wide. In other words it should fit most people.
