Swedish M90 combat boots, with safety toe
Apparently the Swedish army issues a safety boot for hazardous tasks. Despite the bulky looks, the boot is comfortable, at least with the right sock choices. 2nd quality class, these have some surface imperfections that won't hinder use.
Definitely made for field use: utilitarian looks, thick leather, no membranes whatsoever so you can grease the leather and keep it in good shape, speed lacing and proper tread pattern. Naturally the boot also has a composite toe cap.
In case you are unfamiliar with standard leather combat boots made in the Nordic countries, remember that these are meant to be used with at least double socks for a proper fit.
For some reason the Swedish army contracted the manufacturing to the Finnish company Sievi.
Note! Although these probably work pretty well as safety boots, they have removed the shown brown safety boot certification tags from these at the factory, which probably means these not certified safety shoes (probably because of the surface imperfections). For this reason we will not sell these are actual safety footwear either, but more like army surplus. However below is the list of features these have.
- Theoretically meets the safety classification S2:
- Basic requirements
- Closed seat region
- Antistatic properties (A)
- Energy absorption of seat region (E)
- Water penetration and water absorption (WRU)
- Not sold as actual safety footwear!
In reality this means the punctual quality control of peace time. These have some surface imperfections on the leather, mainly something that could be described as scratches and dings. Nothing major, won't affect the use one bit. Normally these would go for like 150 EUR, so it's a good deal.
Your foot length in millimetres (Mondopoint). First of all, these are quite wide, so we are confident you don't have to concern yourself about that when choosing the size. Just look at the millimetre size; this is the suitable foot length.
When you pick the correct size, you'll get 15 mm clearance for the toes. I.e. if your foot is 270 mm long, pick size 270.
Finding our your foot length is very simple, draw your foot on paper and measure the length from the heel to the big toe. If you have to round, round up (result 267 mm for example = pick 270 mm).
If you are shocked and confused, we have given approximate French/EU sizes too.

The safety toe really complements the M90 boot, and the comfort is even better than quality working shoes.
For best fit and comfort, get a pair of Jalas FX2 insoles to go with these (size system matches well). Regular shoe store insoles wont fit due to extra width.
