* Although essentially the same boots, we have two slightly different styles, where the fastening system differs at the ankle hook offset. Orders will be picked at random.

A fundamental component within the Austrian Army boot repertoire, these robust alpine boots, crafted for the Bundesheer by a consortium of skilled manufacturers, undeniably possess one of the most esteemed lineages in the realm of alpine warfare.

They strike a remarkable equilibrium between classic boot design and sturdiness, incorporating contemporary elements such as swift lacing mechanisms that enhance their versatility.

Internally, these boots boast a lavish interior entirely swathed in top-tier, glove-like leather, while their external shell is fashioned from a resilient full-grain cowhide. Austrian boots have garnered a reputation for enduring multiple deployments, whether passed on to the succeeding cohort of trainees or, due to recent legislative alterations, carried home as cherished mementos by their wearers.

Great bargain if they have your size.

I've looked at 8" full-grain leather hiking boots that are resoleable for a while, and they're always between $400-600 dollars. These boots are two layers of leather, full-grain on the outside and a plush soft leather on the inside. Their also seems to be some padding between the two layers on the shaft, but it's not insulation. The boots I received are in great condition, the leather and outer soles appear hardly worn. I will replace the leather insoles. I wear a 10.5 (44) in running shoes, but I ordered half size larger in these boots (45), and they're just right with two pair of socks. Also, they are lighter than I expected, but they aren't light weight boots. As you'd expect with mountain boots, the flex is stiff but by no means uncomfortable. I was really concerned that this was going to be wasted money, but thankfully I was wrong. All they need is some boot grease and insoles.
