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.

Särmä ankle boots

Särmä ankle boots

117.99 USD

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.

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 hi-leg boots in brown. Apart from the sole these are much like the US Army jump boots from the Second World War. Very nice quality, these aren't just for show, they are good enough for real use - made in Estonia just over the Gulf of Finland!

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 "jump boot" from the many other modern offerings is the amazing lack of bullshit features on them: no zippers or anything, these are honest classic hi-leg 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, but the rubber is quite flexible.
  • 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 jump 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.
  • Gusseted tongue well over the ankle. This coupled with the proper leather means these can actually be waterproofed to a certain extent.
  • 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.

Ajoin kengät fiksusti sisään kahdeksan tunnin kävely- ja seisontatyövuorossa, seurauksena reilu 10 rakkulaa. Rakkuloiden parannuttua ja kenkien pehmettyä nämä ovat kuitenkin olleet käytössä mukavimmat kengät mitä olen koskaan omistanut (crocsit ja uggit vaviskaa). Kengät olleet päivittäisessä käytössä niin toimistolla, sienimetsällä kuin ns. kenttähommissakin nyt 2,5 kuukautta. Kengissä käytetty nahka on paksua ja tasaisen laadukkaan oloista enkä ole saanut pintaa rikki vaikka vaihtelevissa maastoissa ja sääolosuhteissa on pistetty menemään ja ikävänä tapana kompuroida omiin jalkoihin ja kaiken maailman kiveyksiin.

Käyttömukavuuden lisäksi nämä ovat mielestäni kauniit ja omalla rosoisella tavallaan sopivan naisellisetkin verrattuna moniin muihin maihareihin. Eivät hiosta sisähommissakaan ja pitävät vettä aivan kuten luvattiin. Ei ole vetoketjuja heikkona lenkkinä, vaikka pukeminen ilman niitä vähän hitaampaa onkin. Vaikuttavat tähän mennessä kaikin puolin laadukkailta. Jos selviytyvät vielä liukkaista talvikeleistä ja kestävät kohtuullisen ajan käytössä, on tämä kenkä sellainen, joka tulee varmasti hankittua toisenkin kerran.

These boots seem to be really well put together although the problem that I did find was that the rubber tread is showing significant wear after only 6 months of on and off pavement use. This does not meat my expectations because of the price point of these boots and the fact that the treads my previous Asolo boots lasted for 3 years.

Puolikkaan koon omaavana ehkä vähän harmittaa, etten voinut saada ihan "täydellistä" kokoa. Yhden koon pienempi koko oli liian pieni ja koon isompi taas vähän liian iso omaan makuun. Talvella villasukka välissä on auttanut ja paksummalla pohjallisellakin saa helpotusta, jos on ohuempaa sukkaa alla. Pientä hölskymistä toisinaan havaittavissa. Ekan vuoden jälkeen ovat vielä kuin uudet, olen huoltanut kenkiä tarpeen mukaan harjaten ja lankaten. Öljyä käytin vain kerran, kun ostin nämä, jotta nahan sai pehmeämmäksi. Kengät ovat olleet lähinnä kaupunkikäytössä.

Parhaat kengät mitä olen koskaan omistanut, samalla osti Varustelekasta kunnon pohjalliset niin näistä vihkiytyi uudet jokapäivän käyttökengät. Ei tarvitse olla todella paksuja sukkia jalassa kun näitä käyttää. Kengissä muuten ei ole mitään valitettavaa, mutta todella isona miinuksena tuli pohjan kestävyys. Vuodessa sain pohjat kummastakin kengästä puhki käveltyä ja kantapäistä kuvion aika hyvin kulutettua. Suutari reissu maksoi 70€ kun piti pohjat vaihtaa kokonaan oli mennyt kengän välipohjakin rikki. Olisin odottanut kovempaa laatua, koska aikaisemmat maiharit mitä olen omistanut niin ei ole ollut tälläisiä ongelmia kuin vasta vuosien käytön jälkeen.
Nämä on parhaimmat kengät mitä olen koskaan omistanut, mutta kannattaa varautua pohjan vaihtoon jos ostaa nämä.
