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
Boots arrived expediently when i placed my order. Arrived in excellent condition, considering they have been used in the military for a few weeks. My only issue was that they are at least one size large. I dont own many large wool military socks, so when wearing with normal cotton socks, these boots need to be laced tightly.That or purchase thick insoles.They arrived with plenty of thread left on the soles, and they where polished before being shipped.overall high quality Austrian made boots, and for the price, hard to find better.
The boots arrived quickly and were completely as expected - amazing! Ordered another pair immediately as the price, quality and style suited perfectly. Fast efficient service, no complaints, highly recommended.
Sized down from my usual 44 1/2 to a 44 and they fit great, im happy with the purchase
Very happy with my purchase, boots are like a dream :) , solid, comfy and cool design.Price is very resobable. Ordered already another pair.
Boots arrived in great condition, I was buying as a cheap alternative to Ann Demeulemeester combat boots and they did not disappoint, very lightly worn/very few scratches or markings, polished them upon receiving and most flaws were buffed out using a good quality brush and polish. The only thing I would suggest is going 1 size smaller than your true size, as the toe cap is quite large. I have wide feet and could still have bennefitted from this. However an insole should fix this issue no problem. overall a great pair of boots for a very reasonable price.
Quick delivery. Soles more worn than expected. Lace broke first time using. Had a pair of these before. Very good boot. Can be resoled numerous times. I brought a size up to allow for comfortable insoles and thicker socks when required.
Very comfortable and hard wearing
unbeatable value. Perfect fit and prompt delivery.
very pleased with the service and the items, both very high quality even though they are used, would thoroughly recommend
Great boots. Army boots are the only ones I can wear all day. Great value and great condition
Quick and efficient delivery, items were better than hoped for boots as good as new and look great on will be purchasing more items from this site
A big thank you
Boots arrived very promptly, even though they were used they are in a great condition, very clean and with no visible damage or wear and tear. They are comfortable and high quality, I am more than happy with this purchase!
Austrian light weight combat boots....
Great boots excellent value and speedy delivery....buy with confidence highly recommended
Fantastic quality boots. Used - but they're in great condition. They came in a lovely cotton drawstring bag. The boots are very comfy to wear fully laced to the top or just tied off around below the hooks with the top open. I'm generally slightly bigger than a size 9 (UK 9.5) but I ordered 9 after reading the other comments here and they fit me well in ordinary lightweight socks and even hiking socks. I will be seeking another pair when these wear out. Looking forward to trying them out somewhere a bit more challenging than the high street. Only downside: not so good for driving in.
Bought these for a midwinter trip to Iceland. Sturdy, comfortable and perfectly sized. Highly recommended
You may think that these boots are larger than the size indicated. However the sizing is correct i.e. a size 42 insole is correct for a size 42 boot. However, unlined boots are made using the same last (wooden template) as used for making lined ones, consequently unlined boots have a void where the lining would be. The best solution is simply to wear 2 pairs of socks and this also allows some degree control over the insulation. For example, Summer: pair of lightweight hiking or sports socks over a normal pair of socks. Spring and autumn: medium weight hiking socks as outer pair, Winter thick heavyweight wool sock as outer pair.
As soon as I picked one up I realised just how much lighter these are than traditional army boots (much more like a modern hiking boot than military ones).
The leather is relatively thin but of an exceptional quality and very supple, There were no insoles, but the insoles are something I normally replace. In terms of warmth and waterproofing well there really is nothing more than a relatively thin layer of leather. No lining ,no membrane and no padding.
Having worn these for half a dozen times in dry weather and having applied a couple of coats of Nikwax waterproofing wax for leather (comes in “toothpaste” tube) and paying particular attention to the stitching on the sole, I decided to see how they would handle some real wet weather.
I went on a dog walk for approximately 3 hours in steady to heavy rain on wet muddy grassland covered in puddles. When I got home socks,insoles and inner were bone dry and I could not find any evidence of any water ingress or even the slightest trace of moisture.
I am not suggesting these are a wet weather boot but they performer much better than I had expected and considerably better than Goretex lined fabric boots I have used previously (and which incidentally cost almost 4 times more than these).
Bought in size 9 and with the addition of a pair of gel insoles have proved to be supremely comfortable. A few minor but anticipated blemishes on the uppers. A lot of wear still left in the soles. Arrived boot blacked up and ready to go. Again, superb communication and delivery time from Forces.
Great product, good value, had to exchange for a smaller size and the replacement came within a few days.
Exactly what I was looking for
Ordered a pair January 2020.
I had to return the first pair as I later learned that, despite being listed as my size, these army boots are intended to be worn with thick socks, and thus feel a size bigger.
I returned and exchanged them for a size lower and they arrived within two or three days, and were a perfect fit.
The boots themselves needed alittle scrubbing and lathering with some mink oil and later with leather conditioner to soften them as the leather is very tough (despite being worn in), but I am extremely happy with these boots.
For a pair of all leather boots, which in the past I have forked out over £140, these are a steal at £35.
Yeah, pretty damn happy with them thet are comfy and the way they wrap around the ankle is fery good since is stops water from getting in so easily, overall i am very happy with them ad would reccomend them to anyone who wants to buy a great pair of army boots, also the prices were epic for what i got, thanks.
Great boots with exceptional value for money. Comfortable with brand new soles. Would not hesitate to buy again or recommend.
they look amazing but best to get some insoles as they're not the most comfortable. i love them though would definitely reccomend
Fabulous! Soft leather boots. Comfortable to wear. Great condition as good as new. Bought a pair for my husband too! Highly recommended. The company delivered on time and informed me of the transaction throughout the process
The boots were exactly as described, second hand but in decent condition. Really comfortable and exactly what I was looking for, the service was good, prompt delivery and very pleased with the overall experience. Would happily recommend.
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.
