We have an idea. Instead of throwing worn quality socks & other clothes away, why not just fix them? This German army patching thread will provide you 20 metres of extended life for your garments. Save many a buck by spending just one!

After a long break, the East German foot wraps are back in stock! We used to sell these as shoe polishing rags at some point. A surprisingly good model among its peers. Sold as single pieces!

Finnish M05 liner socks

Finnish M05 liner socks

5.99 USD

The new basic sock of the Finnish Defence Force. These socks work well with any lined boot and together with a thicker pair of socks they make any non-lined leather boot much more comfortable.

Jalas Fantom Drylock

Jalas Fantom Drylock

144.99 USD

In Finland the comic character "The Phantom" (you know, the butch guy who runs around the Bengal jungle in purple tights) is immensely popular. In fact he's so famous that Jalas actually went and named a boot after him. And a top quality boot it is too! We are especially thrilled, as these fit our wide, hairy Finnish hobbit feet well.

Looking for the best reproduction of the Finnish "Blood Scoop" ever made? Look no further, these are made in Germany by an old headwear manufacturer! Needless to say, the quality is absurdly good.

Särmä merino socks

Särmä merino socks

9.99 USD

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.

Norwegian M77 combat boots

Norwegian M77 combat boots

126.99 USD

In the modern world of membranes and the usual cushioned-for-her-pleasure type approach, the Norwegian M77 combat boots are a refreshing relic from the old days. Stayed virtually unchanged from the year they were adopted, 1977, they still are the standard issue footwear in the Norwegian army. This shell style construction also makes them pretty modular, as you have total control over sock choices.

As the weather gets cold and nasty, so do cotton undergarments. The answer is to switch to merino wool. These have a nice, snug fit for best functionality. We had these made in Lithuania just for us.

Särmä TST boot socks, merino wool

Särmä TST boot socks, merino wool

12.99 USD

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.

Grub's Snowline 8.5 winter boot

Grub's Snowline 8.5 winter boot

81.99 USD

Seriously proper winter boots by the British company Grub's. Someone did something wrong and ended up offering these for us for a price we couldn't refuse - for the customer, this means well over 100 EUR boots for way less! These are the kind you definitely want when the temperatures start reaching down to zero and below. As a side note, these have been seen in use by the Finnish Border Guards, to give you some perspective of the quality.

If you never had the privilege of using proper grandma made woollen socks, here's the next best thing: ye olde thick woollen socks made in Finland in a very traditional workshop!

Complete with toe and heel reinforcement, made of 70% wool and 30% polyamide. The polyamide content is not a cost saving measure, but a very practical way to increase the life span of the socks drastically. These are very hard wearing, and every finished sock is individually inspected at the factory.

The manufacturer recommends washing by hand, but a 30 degrees Celsius spin in the washing machine is OK too.

Pro tip: you'll get the most out of thick woollen socks by wearing a lighter woollen sock under them.

Made in Finland by Helsingin Villasukkatehdas

Yes, these are made right here some 20 km from our store in a very traditional small sock factory, with British machines dating back to the 1920's (but made to work with electricity in the 50's, blasphemy!). These are so Finnish made we almost can't believe it ourselves! Here's the home page, if you don't know the language, look at the pictures.

Toi varmaan sentin paksuinen rantu suoraan varpaiden päällä on tosi jäätävä kenkien kanssa. Himassakin töpsötellessä tämä ompelusauma raapii mukavasti jalkaa, mutta sen kanssa vielä pärjää. En ole ikinä käyttänyt kenkien kanssa yhtä epämukavia villasukkia. Muuten laatu vaikuttaa hyvältä, mutta mikä ihmeen idea tossa saumassa on... Ei mummon kutomissa sukissa moisia ollut.

I believe these are very good as a an outer layer sock. They are hard-wearing, and I do not find them particularly uncomfortable. A bit expensive maybe but, like I said, they will definitely not wear out any time soon.

Mahtavat villasukat! Puen aina paljaaseen jalkaan. Lämmittävät ja hengittävät. Toimivat sekä tennareissa että vaelluskengissä.
