Särmä jump boots

144.99 USD

Särmä leather belt, 40 mm

Särmä leather belt, 40 mm

22.99 USD

Proper no-nonsense leather belts are increasingly difficult to find these days, well at least until we started making these! This here is just that, a proper no-nonsense leather trouser belt, strong leather with a classical single prong brass buckle.

Bullshit free ankle boots made by the Estonian Foxberg to our specs. Apart from the sole these are much like the US Army garrison boots from the Second World War. Very nice quality, these aren't just for show, they are good enough for real use.

No need to try to reinvent the wheel when you already have something as cool as this, taken straight from the books of history. What separates our ankle boots from the many other modern offerings is the amazing lack of bullshit features on them: no zippers or anything, these are honest classic boots. To keep the cost to reasonable levels these do have a glued on sole, which does the job well. These are very likely of much higher quality than similarly priced "fashion" boots.

  • Glued on rubber sole with grippy tread pattern - probably not the gentlemanliest one out there (they don't make smoother soles in any good lasts goddammit!), but very practical. No real cushioning on the sole.
  • Upper made of smooth leather, the kind that actually soaks in polish and grease. It'll get a nice patina in use and will last a long time. Please note: these aren't PU coated, so the leather looks "organic", this means there will be slight colour differences between different parts of the boot, as much - or as little - as seen in the pictures. Very cool.
  • Apart form the modern sole, the whole boot is modeled after the classic US service boot of World War 2. This means the general construction is pretty damn solid.
  • No lining or membranes whatsoever, these are pretty straightforward. Means they dry faster, and you can regulate warmth by playing with different socks.
  • In the olden days boots like this were often coupled with gaiters or puttees in military use. We have taken this into account with the fit of the shaft.
  • Cap toe construction, but no safety features.
  • Cushion insoles included. These are pretty much the same as on the Norwegian M77 combat boots, which come from the same factory.

Thanks to the solid construction and grippy sole, these can actually be used outside the city too. For those looking for a traditional unlined leather boot for outdoor use, this might be the ticket. When you get back to town, just polish them up before hitting the pub.

Being mainly hand-crafted from real animal and not having a polyurethane coating on them, these might have occasional little signs of manufacturing process and/or natural imperfections. These will blend in anyway as the boots get some kilometres behind them, so nothing to worry about.

As another guy already wrote, great upper, but too soft sole. Already after two months of everyday use, i could see the sole being used, especially underneath the big toe. Bit of a shame. The leatherwork seems fine though and after some tours with leather grease and a few km walked they sit really good.

Hyvälaatuista nahkaa. Ei huono, saatikka itsestäänselvä asia nahkakengissä!. Jos olet tottunut "markettilaatuun" saattaa jopa oudolta alkuun tuntua. Ellei toiveena ole instant puliukko look, suosittelen perusteellista käyttöönottohuoltoa. Itselläni minkkiöljy sekä Chelsea leather food käsittely kolme kertaa jonka jälkeen nahka jo hyvä ja elastinen, lisää myös käyttövuosia kun nahan solukko on neitseellinen ja ottava huollolle. Istuvuus on heti pakasta lupaava, kokemukseni mukaan tämäntyyppisissä nahkalaaduissa ikääntyminen on hyvä asia. Kannattanee valita suhteellisen istuva koko, löysä ei ole hyvä. Nahka tulee mukautumaan. Jos haet maksimaalista hengittävyyttä kesäkeleille, kannattaa nahan käsittely suorittaa minimaalisen määrän kautta.
Työn jälki on hyvä, yhdessä nahan laadun kanssa ei aiheuta kritiikkiä suhteessa hintaan. Käyttömukavuus selkeästi parempi vaihtamalla pohjalliset Jalas fx-malliin.
Miinusta pohjan rakenteesta sekä ulkonäösta. Omaan makuuni pohja voisi olla jäykempi, täysmustana ei tyylikäs. Pohja suhteellisen pehmeä ja voimakkasti kuvioitu joten todenäköisesti liukkailla pitävä. Vaelluskäyttöön löytyy parempia vaihtoehtoja, tosin hintakin silloin korkeampi. Iso plussa tietynlaisesta kunnianhimosta Varustelekalle, laatua tässä on selkeästi haettu. Miinuksista huolimatta en kenkiä palauttanut.

Muuten oilisivat varmaan hyvät, mutta koot loppuvat liian aikaisin ja kenkä on jalkapöydän päältä matala (isompi koko voisi auttaa)

Meinasin eka ostaa "brändi"maiharit, kun lyhyempi vartisia kaipasin. Onneks tajusin, että olen urpo jos näitä en osta. Kannattaa. Ikinä en ole ostanut näin hyviä nahkakenkiä. Korkeudeltaan vertaisin nilkkureihin, oma pelko että liia pitkä varsi, mutta juuri sen nilkan peittää kivasti. Sisäpohjanpituus taulukkoo ja omaa järkee kannattaa käyttää, niin löytää sen oikeen koon. Oma jalka ei oo mistää siroimmasta päästä ja koko vaihtelee 41-42 riippuen, kuinka levee lesti. Nyt tuli arvottua koko 42 ja istuu niin pirun hyvin, on tarpeeks tilaa. 41 koko olisi ollut liian tiukka jalkaan. Todella mukavat jalassa, ei purista mistään ei edes kantapää hankaa. Nahkakengät kestää, kun muistaa huoltaa niitä ja nämä kannattaa omistaa.

I was looking for some kind of substitute for my old Chilean combat boots in urban use and these ankle boots were in my sights for quite a while. They are pretty well made, but not up to milspec levels. Despite the quality leather upper (showing it was made in a proper country and not in nondescriptland), the carrarmato sole, for all its unnecesary blockiness, is rather soft and tends to worn off rather quickly. Besides, the pressed fiberboard inner sole doesn't seem to make the cut for a boot that pretends to have mixed use. While they will do their job on the countryside, in their current form they're more suited for daily winter city use, than for heavier uses like hiking and stuff. A Goodyear welt and leather inner soles would be the thing, and conversely would hike the price a lot. Still, properly greased and waxed, they will maintain your feet dry on a rainy day and you won't be shy of any muddy waters that comes by your path. Along that, you have top grain leather that takes very well shoe polishing, looking good even on a suit, coupled with the lack of lining, since you won't have a mini sauna on each feet everyday you decide to use socks. In this use I'm quite satisfied, and I've bought these after buying the brown ones before. Yet for heavier use I'd rather sacrifice some surplus boots than these.

Puolitoista näillä on menty kesättalvet työmatkat, kauppamatkat, koiralenkit, soittoreissut, vaellukset, baarireissut ja niin edelleen. Puolisäännöllisellä laiskalla lankkauksella (sillä saksalaisella halvalla armeijalankilla) ovat pysyneet kohtuullisen vedenpitävinä ja talvella tuplasukalla lämpöisyyskin on riittävä. Paukkupakkasella tietty sitten jotkut karvavuoritalvikengät tulevat kyseeseen. Jalaksen skifipohjallisten kanssa oiva pari!

Paksu matsku vaatii vaan hiton pitkän sisäänajon, mutta kestääpähän sitten. Pohja ei suostu kulumaan. Edes kengännauhat eivät suostu katkeamaan käytössä, mihin olen tottunut yleensä kenkien kanssa.

Kevyemmät ja notkeammat miltä näyttävät (ainakin jos on omistanut paramaiharit). Tuntuma alustaan on hyvä, pohjan materiaalivalinta on onnistunut. Työn jälki on erittäin hyvää ja saumat ja liimaukset vaikuttavat oikein kestäviltä.

Imevät uutena melkoisesti rasvaa, eli jos purkin pohjalla on vain jämät, kantsii tilata samalla lisää. Alkuperäinen värikin häipyy aika nopsaan, eli lankkia on hyvä myöskin olla valmiina. Valjasrasva tummentaa ihan aavistuksen verran, saksalaisen lankki pikkuisen enemmän.

Lesti on leveä ja kun kenkä saa vähän liikuntaa, se alkaa muotoutua ja asettua. Eli se miltä uusi kenkä tuntuu kaupassa, ei ole sama kuin miltä hyvin sisäänajettu kenkä tuntuu. Kengässä ei ole ilmeisesti mitään kummempia muovivahvikkeita.

Oikein mainiot vanhan ajan varsikengät ilman turhia kikkailuja. Ainoa pieni naputtamisen aihe on, että nauhat voisivat olla asteen tummemmat, mutta kyllä ne siitä varmaan menossa vähän vaihtavat väriä.

Nyt viitisen kuukautta näillä tallustellut ja todella hyvät kengät. Yksinkertaiset, tyylikkäät ja erittäin varmatoimiset. Ei ole paljoa nämä jalassa tarvinnut murehtia mistään astumisesta.

great boots for the price, with some room for improvement. I have used them for everything from the described pub visit, over walks of a few dozen km, to parachuting.
Suggested improvements:
-using thicker leather
-using harder rubber for the soles. They are pretty worn off at the ball of the foot and after a year.
-ditching the “rubber stitching” on the soles. I makes them use kinda cheap. A goodyear welt would be great and I would pay more fro an MK III including that.

- lankannut en oo vielä näitä, koska ihan valjasrasva antaa näille hyvän punertavan ruskean sävyn & suojan
- vastaavan sävyisiä kenkiä oon nähnyt puolet kalliimpina, todellakin
- lenkkeilyyn en ottaisi, mutta nämä jalassa lyhyemmät matkat maastossa ja city-elvistely käy hyvin:)
- suosittelen

Työn jälki hyvä ja materiaalit kestävän oloisia. Nahka kauniin ruskea ja muotoilu klassisen kaunis. Kestävyyden ja korjattavuuden haittapuolena tulee se tosiasia, että nämä ovat aika jäykät ja kolhot. Paksu pohja tekee kengistä painavat ja nahka tuntuu vuoden käytön jälkeen edelleen liian jäykältä lähteä pitkälle kävelylle näiden kanssa.

Kengät ovat olleet nyt pari vuotta ympärivuotisessa käytössä. Talvella kenkiin ohuempaa villapohjallista, jotta jalkaan menee villasukat. Kesää kohti pohjallinen vaihtuu paksumpiin ja muotoiltuihin. Kertaakaan talvella ei ole tarvinnu olla varpaat jäässä.

-Ompeleet ovat kestäneet, vaikka kengät ovat olleet mettäkäytössä ja niillä on painettu menemään rakkakivikossa.

-Kenkiin käytetty nahka on laadukasta ja kestää kovemmankin kulutuksen kunhan muistaa hoitaa kenkiä käytön jälkeen.

-Vedenpitävyys on sen hetken mitä lankki ja rasva pysyy kengän nahassa. Kengät kuivaa suht nopeasti verrattaessa kalvollisiin vaelluskenkiin. Ennemmin pidän märkiä kalvottomia kenkiä jalassa kuin kalvollisia.

-Pohjien liimaukset ovat pettäneet kertaalleen, mutta kengät ovat olleet muussakin käytössä kuin kaupungilla patsastelussa. Suutari hoiti pohjat paikalleen 10e laskuun. Pohjien vaihto onnistuu myös suutareilta.

Kokomitoitus vastaa numeroita. Lesti on leveä. Oletus lienee, että näiden kanssa käytetään paksuja sukkia. Pohjien voimakas profiili on hieman ristiriidassa kengän hillityn koristelun kanssa, vähän kuin sisäkengät olisi istutettu ulkokenkien pohjiin. Erityisesti pohjien feikkiommel oli melkein liian paha yksityiskohta kenkien pitämiseen, mutta yritän sulkea silmäni siltä. Pohjien väri (musta) ruskeissa kengissä ei ole tyylimielessä kovinkaan onnistunut; jos pohjamateriaalin saisi vaaleammasta materiaalista ja matalammalla profiililla - ja ilman valeommelta, tulisi viideskin tähti lisää. Työn laatu tuntuu hyvältä.

These boots made their way to Canada much faster than I expected. The leather seems to be holding up quite well, and they are quite comfortable for extended wear. I highly recommend these boots to anyone looking for that red leather look to pair with jeans.

Nää on nyt ristitty ihmekengiksi. Voi kahlailla allikoiden läpi, upota pitkospuilla ja kulkea päivän rankkasateessa, ja sukat pysyy silti kuivina. Siis mitä kaikkea nää oikein kestää! Liian väljinä hankaa nilkat rakoille heti, mutta sukkien määrää säätämällä saa istumaan jalassa kuin valettu, siis kuin olisi omat kaviot :) Yllättävän kevyet kulkea. Mun parhaat retkijalkineet.

Tänään ostin kengät ja ensivaikutelma oli, että nämä on hyvät, kun vaan muokkaantuvat omalla jalalle sopivaksi. En usko, että tuossa kovin kauan menee, kun istuu jalkaa hyvin. Jos jotain toivoisin lisää, niin se olisi varren takaosaan pieni nahkalenkki, joka helpottaisi kengän jalkaan vetämistä. Voihan sen lenkin teettää jälkikäteen. Mutta näillä kengillä todennäköisesti tallustelen tyytyväisenä.
