Austrian Army Lightweight Leather Combat Boots
Genuine Grade 1 Austrian Army lightweight leather combat boots. These boots have been checked, and if required repaired and so are perfectly good and very hard-wearing items.
- Cushioned Sole
- Closed loop and speed lace system
- Lots of tread remaining on sole.
Please note that we may from time to time have difficulty fulfilling certain sizes of these boots. In this case we will provide an immediate refund.
Please also note, on the sole or tongue of these boots will be a figure 8 which is the Austrian military's method of stating the width of the boots, this is not the boot size. The boot size will be in Euro sizing - eg. 39 or 41
4 stars for the product, there were just minor scuffs but I did not expect them to be pristine anyway. Shipping was also good, but not perfect for there was no tracking data or a firmer expectation when it would arrive here in the UK. Overall a good shopping experience and I can fully recommend it.
The boots were exactly as described and in perfect condition. Shipping was very fast. Unfortunately they were too big for me and had to return them. I got the refund on THE DAY they received the boots back. Really amazed by the company's quick and reliable service. Would recommend to anyone!
10/10 product and service, product was in great condition and shipping was amazingly fast. Would order again.
Received these within a few days of ordering, condition of the boots is near perfect with some signs that a few dents might have been fixed up in the past, after a good clean and polish they look practically brand new.
I got these because I wanted a backup to a pair of Austrian paratrooper boots I have from the 90's, these ones are more modern (2014?) but are visually identical to those, they are however a little lighter overall. They'll obviously run a little big because they are designed for use with very thick socks, so keep that in mind while purchasing. (I'm a 9 dead on, and a pair of these in 9 does run a little big on me even *with* thick socks. Mostly solved with thick insoles).
Great quality item, will last a lifetime if treated correctly.
Very comfortable, and absolutely ecstatic that they arrived before Christmas. I've been complimented and asked where I purchased them from. I'd definitely buy from you again 😉
Can't fault the product or the service. Second hand boots but in really good condition and they went the extra mile to get them out to me before Xmas. Many thanks to them.
Ordered the boots and they arrived within a few days - really good condition and very comfortable.
Amazing !!!! Can honestly say I was more than chuffed when they arrived. Fit perfect,comfy and just what I was looking for. Well pleased.
I wear my boots everyday and they're comfy as. Pair of insoles in and you're good to go! Shipping was fast, I find them a bit squeaky but that's not an issue, that's probably just until I wear them in. Would definitely buy again!
the best and most beautiful boots the Austrian army ever had!
The pair that arrived is in perfect condition!
Thank you very much, I am very happy!
(shipping was fast too)
Like these boots very much, excellent quality for the price much better than expected!
I have been away so just received the boots. They do not have a stitched tougne which is required to aid the water proofing. I'm looking to wear them in shallow water for work.
Can you advise an alternative e and I will return these. Thanks.
The product I bought it's very uncomfortable, it's has like a nudge on the right boot.
I will return them when I have time,
Unfortunately I have been working, so not time to think about it too much, but certainly when I will be home from work I will return them.
Perfect pair of boots. Both smart and rugged. I bought one pair for general wear and they were so good I bought another pair straight away for work (gardening). They came incredibly quickly, well-packaged, polished, and in a cotton boot bag. Boots had minimal wear and are clearly very well-made. As long as these boots are available I doubt I'll buy any others. Creature of habit! Thank you very much to Forces Uniform and Kit for being such a great company to deal with.
Very pleased with these. A good combination of comfort and durability. Very good value for money, and delivered very quickly indeed.
Need durable, comfortable boots? Buy these.
Really solid well made boots. Ordered these to replace some very worn out Dr Martens. I have had a couple of pairs of German para boots in the past, which were great, so I thought I would give the Austrian ones a try. These boots are just as good! I am usually a uk size 11 and the euro 45 fitted perfectly. Have used FU&KIT in the past and as before service /delivery etc all great. Many thanks
Great condition perfect fit
Great boots but sizing was an issue for me, I ordered size 6 (my size) and they were enormous, reordered the same boots in size 5 and they are a perfect fit. Boots hardly been worn, impreywith the quality.
Very good quality and hardly used. Really comfortable from day 1.
Insoles are leather and are starting to mould to my feet nicely.
I'm a size 10 usually but ordered this in a size 9 which was perfect.
I can't think of another boot which is better value.
Ordered some of these and they arrived fast. Condition is good with a few minor cuts and abrasions to leather and some tread wear. They are very well constructed boots that should last a good long time if looked after.
I take a size (uk 10.5/11) (euro 45/45.5) ( metric 290mm) and these are are a perfect fit, sewn in label reads eu 45.
For comparison, these boots are far superior in build quality to my full grain leather Dr martens which cost around £100 new. These Austrian combats are comparable to the UK service issue late 80s high combat boots that I wore in the 1990s. Tough, heavy duty, build to last.
Overall very pleased with service quality and value.
A great boot very comfortable , in good condition without a lot of wear , very happy
Look nice. Ordered 7, Boot Label says 8/41, invoice says uk 7 ... they are way too massive for me. I'd say they are a UK 8 . Didn't return them. Prob stick them on eBay or something.. as an 8. Other than that.. they are as worn as the pic shows, good enough for the money and arrived very quick.
The leather is so soft and I am very happy to replace my Doc's with these boots. There is a scratch on the leather but for the price, I do not mind at all.
Great boots, like slippers compared to a new pair of Docs. A good solid sole with plenty of life left. Thanks
Impressed by the great quality of the boots - clean and free of scuffs and scratches and with good tread on the soles. Delivery was prompt and easy to track along the way. Really good value for money. I immediately bought a second pair for a friend.
Love the leather combat boots that I got from online FU-Kit website. Fit perfect and in brill condition. Thank you
Minimal wear, very comfortable & high quality. Would recommend to anybody.
Really well made, comfortable and well fitting. Well worth the money
First Class service & First Class boots !
A few minimal nicks & wear you would expect from a Grade 1 boot...the one's I received were made in 2015 but look like they were worn for less than a month ! Years of life left in them !
Size 10 UK ordered & perfect fit, also ordered the Austrian full lined boots but took a gamble on a size 11 UK, again, a perfect fit so recommend a size up if you order them !
I’ve recommended this to my friend’s son!
Hi on the 1st of October I placed an order with you for a pair of army boots.Today I found out they went to 76 church road instead of 78 .Our neighbour sent them back .Thank you .Kind regards J withers
Excellent service, and really excellent quality boots, will definitely be happy to buy more in the future
These boots are excellent. Very traditional bombproof construction and very comfortable. Can be resoled so will probably last forever if looked after. Minor disappointment is that the tongue is not fully sewn in but I don’t intend to go wading so this won’t be a problem, there’s loads of overlap so no crap gets in. Excellent service too!
What can I say I have been trying get some of these boots in my size (47) for ever and they are worth the wait I used them for a festival and of course it rained and rained feet were bone dry not like Gore-Tex year before which leaked Gore-Tex boots have a shelf life these will last forever 10 out of 10 buy some quick
Arrived quick, looked basically new and fit like a glove. They're quite sturdy yet light - an absolute pleasure to wear. They're bit squeaky but that's because I forgot to get some fitting socks.
All in all, can't be beat in quality and service! Get this gem!
Bought these for everyday wear. Supple worn in leather throughout. Light and comfortable. Fits true to size. Mine came with a leather insole that can be replaced. Beats a pair of modern DM´s every day of the week.
These boots really are amazing, and light! I mean, it's in the title but I thought it was gonna feel heavier than this, I could skip down the road in these. In fact, I think I will.
Excellent service and purchase. Will use again. Congratulations Forces Uniform & Kit.
Great boots. Very comfortable and condition is like new! Price is excellent value and the shipping was super quick. Highly recommend :)
these boots are wonderful and i love them
I bought a pair of these boots a few weeks ago, they arrived in two days the fit was perfect and condition was excellent , I can't fault them extremely good value for money
I am so happy with these boots. Even though they are stated as worn, they look brand new. Made with fantastic quality leather, they look super stylish with pants and dresses. Amazing delivery, they arrived within a few days of ordering. I will definitely be purchasing more products from Forces Uniform and Kit.
Bought for event security work. I had bought a pair of British Army assault boots from elsewhere which I thought I'd broken in but shredded my feet after a 5 day event. Replaced them with these Austrian boots and there's no comparison. Add a some decent insoles and these are a way better boot. Will be buying another pair.
Arrived almost spotless. Very little wear on the sole. Fit like slippers.
Very comfortable and sturdy just what I needed.
I have purchased both the heavyweight and the lightweight Austrian army boots.I am ex British army and I think they are both very good boots,I bought mine mainly for walking and I am very happy with them,I would suggest that you buy a size bigger than you usually order.
Considering the age and the fact they are used these boots are in really good condition with plenty of life left in them. For the price, an excellent buy.
My boots arrived very quickly and I am thoroughly satisfied with them. Although used..they are in near perfect condition with a great sole and heel still intact. Because the weather has been hot recently I have not had chance to use them for any long walking yet...but the fit seems perfect. I am over the moon with them and would definitely use this company again.
The product is great value and if it wasn't for the fact the leather was soft you would think they are brand new, great for the price.
I was a bit apprehensive about buying these boots, used and all but surprise surprise I love them. All the hard work's been done already, the leather is soft and whoever's or however they're polished, they shine all over.
My main worry was whether they'd be suitable while riding my motorcycle but again, they're great and perfect for what I need.
I will buy more in the future when needed and overall I would recommend to anyone.
I hate buying clothes/shoes online and wasn’t 100% sure if I wanted to get these due to them being grade 1 and not being able to check them out first. I brought them with the intention of wearing for hiking and festivals, however I like them so much I’m gonna order another pair or maybe the German ones. The company have polished them which was nice and has saved me a job. They look like they have been worn for maybe a week or two not even any ware on the soles. Don’t bother buying Dr Martens that are cheaply made with poor quality leather, if you want to pay for a brand that’s down to you. These are much better, good quality leather and still have the new leather smell about them and at initial glance look like Dr Martens. I can’t comment on other people’s purchases only my own so I don’t know whether I was lucky but I will be using this company for everything in future.
I actually bought these for a costume party, but they’re astonishingly good quality for the price. I haven’t worn them for a long time, so I can’t speak for their durability, but they seem very well made, the leather is supple, and although apparently “used” they’re almost box fresh. Maybe I got a freakishly good pair, but I have boots for almost ten times the price, and I can’t see any difference. Remarkably good, and I will be wearing them long after the party I got them for.
Bought as a present to replace a pair of old para boots that had worn out. They turned up very quickly. They look great, plenty of wear on the tread, the leather is in excellent condition. They are very soft. Apparently they are really comfortable straight away and not too heavy. Great for motorbike which they were bought for. Not a bad word to say about them. Great value for money.
Great boots. Great value for money .. what more can I say...
Good price/quality ratio.
If they ever tear down I would with buy another pair from FUaK with no hesitation.
Great condition pair of boots, really happy with them, they do run slightly large, but two pairs of socks and they fit perfect. For this price you won't find better, I will always come back in the future
5 Stars because for this price it would be an insult to give any less. :). The upper leather was very good quality, with very few marks. Sole, while used was used very lightly and still has years of use in it. Be careful as the sole is not a non-slip variety and can be a bit slippery in wet city conditions. On the other hand the sole is quite tough giving the boot extra grip off road. This will never be dress boots, but ideal for camping and trekking trips. My foot is quite wide (XW in fact) but the fit is decent because the boot was already broken into. I particularly enjoy plenty of heel support and how high the boots are. Any downsides are balanced out by the build quality and waterproof reliability. I have literally walked into puddles almost ankle deep and my foot stayed dry. I am so happy I am considering getting an extra pair. You can't not buy them as long as you don't mind second hand. About that, my boot arrived squeaky clean and polished. No sign of previous owner or any bad smells. Win all around.
Really nice quality boots in very good used condition. Can't really go wrong at this price.
I love these so much. Exactly what I expected 10/10
When I received the boots I thought they were new - they are in superb condition. The hook and eye combination makes for a very snug fit which gives excellent ankle support. I have added shock absorbing insoles which ensures that the boots worn for between five and six hours on a hard surface are very comfortable
Pretty much exactly what I wanted. They run probably half a size to one size big
Boots de bonne qualité et presque neuve !!
Livraison trop lente pour le prix.
Satisfait dans l’ensemble.
Fantastic pair of high quality boots that arrived very quickly. Would highly recommend. The bag was an unexpected but pleasant surprise too.
Looking forward to taking these out for a stomp around the woods. Great boots. Great service.
I ordered two pairs of boots, one came in new condition, made in 2011, the other pair had obviously been worn but still in great nick, made in 2003.
The leathers good n thick cowhide which takes leather grease/polish very well.
The soles are welted with the tried and tested commando soles so they should never fail n come away from the upper.
These should last a lifetime.
Both pairs after a bit of leather grease and a brush up look brand spankers, smart looking boots, fit well to my feet and the soles have plenty of life in them the rubbers still flexible and gives plenty of grip.
The nicer pair are now my day to day boots for out n about in town, the other pair are for camping/hiking and bushcraft.
£56 quid (including postage) for two pairs of very well made high quality boots in almost new condition, both pairs should last years and years of everyday use if looked after, but will certainly take some abuse.
Very happy customer and they even came in a nice new drawstring canvas bag which now lives in my bushcraft bag
Boots game really fast - they were exactly as described and even came with a forces uniforms and kit dust cover - absolutely would buy again
Fit seems nice and virtually brand new soles on them, and the heavy weight ones I bought at the same time.
Feel quite comfy aswell, have yet to try them out actually walking anywhere as yet but being already broken in and very well constructed etc I think they'll be well suited to anything and everything I can throw at them, they certainly look and feel like they'll outlast me several times over.
Excellent boots which are very comfortable - as they have already been broken in - many years of use left in them and a real bargain. Delivered quickly with helpful order progress updates. All good thank you.
re-soled and obviously had plenty of wear, nevertheless pleased with them. Lovely leather and comfortable. Very good service from FU & K as I have found previously.
great boots, tts is fine.
I don't go out of my way to write reviews normally but these boots are great. I've just unpacked them and tried them on, they feel really comfy and the condition of them is amazing! I doubt these have had more than a couple of miles on them. Bloody brilliant.
The boots look wonderful and they smell wonderful too. I am only sad that boot tongue seems so fragile. It isn't damaged but just touching it makes me afraid that it will tear soon.
the boot blew him out off his field of comfort. he is so full of smiles xx
This are great boots there in great condition the only wear might be on the soul of the boot but okay
