Extremely well made, tough ol' ankle boots, nowadays know as "work boots". No GTX, or unnecessary puffy linings, just thick leather, roomy fit and to top it off, a Goodyear-welted leather sole. Used Swedish army surplus from the times when things like planned obsolescence were not fashionable. God, they had it good in the old days and if someone says otherwise, your mother's a ho.

Extremely well made, tough ol' ankle boots, nowadays know as "work boots". No GTX, or unnecessary puffy linings, just thick leather, roomy fit and to top it off, a Goodyear-welted leather sole. Used Swedish army surplus from the times when things like planned obsolescence were not fashionable. God, they had it good in the old days and if someone says otherwise, your mother's a ho.

Ankle height, old timey unlined leather combat boot with a somewhat wide last and good room for socks. Leather sole, Goodyear welt. They usually slapped on a pair of rubber half-soles on top of these, many of them made by Tretorn. In all of their simplicity these are a magnificent but nonchalant pair of Good Boots. When worn with thick socks and proper insoles these are very comfy to walk in, designed for marching and fighting as they are.

Some small differences depending on the year of manufacture; some have an external toe reinforcement, some have it inside. Some have ski grooves on the back of the heels, some don't. All are ankle height leather boots with leather soles, usually with sewn on/glued rubber half-soles and heel pieces. The half-soles are often surprisingly little used, but no promises whatsoever.

Cobbler-friendly boots

These boots are generally in a bit scruffy condition and might require some touch-up especially concerning the usually oxidated eyelets. Fortunately almost everything in these boots is actually repairable, including the whole sole, unlike most boots made today.

Care

These work well with grease and regular polish. Remember to take care of the crevice between the upper and the sole. An old toothbrush is a good tool for this. We recommend cleaning and greasing the boots once you get them in your hands and decide you're satisfied with them.

Size info

Sizes in the Mondopoint system: user's foot length in millimeters. The sizes run quite big, no need to pick a larger size for extra sock clearance. The conversion to US sizes is made by us, based on how shoe sizes actually relate to each other. (You know, barleycorns, Paris points, and such.)

Some sizes may be available with the European system as the primary. They are tighter than the label would indicate. For these, we made the conversion to a smaller US-size to help you pick the correct size.

Condition

Made usually in the 50s and 60s. Usually these are well used, but also well cared for decades ago when they were decommissioned. Almost every pair has been refurbished with rubber half-soles and heel pieces and then used a bit more. The metal parts, mainly the eyelets, might have heavy oxidation and might require replacing soon - accept this when ordering. This has been taken into account in the pricing.

One-off lot

Once the sizes listed are gone, they're actually gone. No restock!

Elämäni parhaita kenkäostoksia. Valittu koko 41,5 sopi Jalas FX2 -pohjallisen kanssa 42 koon jalkaani kuin hansikas. Pohjasta löytyvän leiman perusteella kengät on valmistettu vuonna 1962, siis kaksi vuotta ennen omaa syntymääni. Paljon on maailma muuttunut vuosien mittaan ennen kuin näiden kenkieni kanssa osuimme yhteen. Tack Sverige och tack Varusteleka.

Tuli postissa käytännössä iskemättömät kengät. Laatuostos.

Sain erittäin hyväkuntoiset kengät jotka pienen puhdistamisen ja kiillotuksen jälkeen eivät vaadi kuin kovaa käyttöä että saa jalat tottumaan kenkiin. Näillä lumisilla keleillä tuntuvat hieman liukkailta, voi olla että vaikka kantalappu on uusi se voisi kaivata vaihtoa pehmeämpään versioon.

Hintaansa nähden oikein laadukkaat kengät. Vaativat ehdottomasti rasvaa ja suutarin kosketusta. Ostin kahdet ja sain kahdet erimalliset kengät. Koko oli sama mutta toinen tuntui silti huomattavasti tiukemmalta. Eka kierros suutarilla maksoi 40€ molemmilta kengiltä. Toiset tulivat tällä kuntoon, mutta toiset menivät uusintakierrokselle lisävenytyksiin ja pohjien laittoon.joten tuli toiset 30€ suutarilta hintaa niin 2 paria kenkiä maksoi yhteensä 120€ eli ihan ok hinta.

Pros:
-Halpa vaikka suutari kuluja tulee.
-Kunnostettavissa vaikkakin suurella vaivalla.
-Kokemus toisista kengistä jotka olen jo ottanut käyttöön että hankinta oli todella hyvä.

Cons:
-Homeen haju on aivan hirvittivä. Onneksi se laimenee nopeasti käsittelyiden ja käytön myötä.
-Kengän kielessä ompelukset jääneet liian kauas ja "kielen" kohdalla on ylimääräistä nahkaa joka rullautuu painamaan todella kivuliaasti jalkapöytää. Suutari onneksi korjaa tämän vian.
-Kengän malli melko matala. Onneksi suutari voi venyttää kenkää mihin suuntaan vain.
-Kengät oli kivikovat tullessaan. Sovittaminen oli mahdotonta ennen rasvausta.
-Toisista kengistä puuttui kumilaput pohjasta. Suutari onneksi korjaa tämänkin.
-Toinen kenkäpari selkeästi tiukempi kuin toinen. Johtuneeko siitä että toiset olivat uudemmat vai siitä että olivat erimallia en osaa sanoa. Suutari sai venyttää toisia kenkiä enemmän.

Tilasin puutarhakengiksi. Outoa vihreetä, rasvan tuntuista mömmöä niiden nauhanreikien ympärillä, tuoksuu vähän sellaiselta rasvaprässikamalta. Sain vikan parin 43’sia.
Kyllä näillä kelpaa kopsutella.
