Russian "BTK" desert boots, surplus
The new Russian "BTK" series desert boots are a mixture of rubber, nylon and leather, without membranes of any kind. These have something very traditional to them; compared to Western boots these lack the certain futuristic hi-speed low-drag appearance, instead they look like real deal army boots. Not necessarily a bad thing, yes?
Sole made of one piece rubbery material, the rest is leather and nylon. The leather is thick, strong and supple. Inside you'll find a mesh lining. Traditional lacing, of course. The general fit is a bit on the roomier side.
Care. Hmm. These are probably meant to be cared the same way as Western desert boots, which means brusah dirt off and that's it. Of course any leather benefits from oil and grease, but applying those on pale leather will darken it and maybe even make it splotchy. So, this we leave up to the user.
Sizes in the traditional EU system, with the user's recommended foot length in millimetres. The last is quite wide, even from the toe - these are not fancy oxford shoes, but a pair of barbaric military boots!
Used. Because of the tan colour, any stains or dirt show up pretty well. These are however quite intact and in serviceable shape. Selling these to the civilian market is of course forbidden, but for the right amount of roubles an enterprising storeman could maybe lose them.
