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.
Nothing but leather, polyurethane and steel here. Being a very traditional design, the M77 may lack a waterproof membrane (which would fail at some point anyway) but makes it up in long term durability. Just keep the boots well greased and change socks if they get wet and you're pretty much good to go. Or if you need proper waterproofing, get a pair of SealSkinz waterproof socks.
These boots have front lugs and a rear groove for use with ski and snowshoe bindings. Compatible bindings include army models as made by Asnes and Rottefella, to name a couple.
The price comes not from sexy brand names or other nonsense, but of the quality of the materials and workmanship: the leather is proper thick with no PU coatings whatsoever and the sole is one block of high-quality rubber moulded directly to the upper. All the lace hooks & loops are likewise made of quality metal. As the PU sole has no air pockets inside it, it's possible to glue on more stuff if it eventually gets thin, however, it is pretty thick to start with.
First the standard French/EU size, then recommended foot length in millimetres. Measure by drawing the outline of your foot on a paper, then measuring the distance directly from the big toe to the centre edge of the heel.
The sizes run large. Additionally, the last is wide. These are designed to be used with double or even triple woollen socks and this is taken into account in sizing!
Yes, the Norwegian army gets its footwear made there. Hey, why not, the manufacturer knows its stuff and Estonia is also a NATO-country. These have the Norwegian shield logo on the sole, denoting they fill the army quality standards.
