It's hard to find a more sturdy and hard wearing pair of boots then these Swiss combat boots. They are quality built, made to last and can take a serious bashing. Dated around the 90's, these may be an older pair of boots, but they still have a long, long life ahead of them. According to Swiss training manuals, it's recommended to clean and polish your Swiss Army Boots at least once a month, especially during regular use. In addition, depending on the climate you're in, it's suggested to apply a layer of wax or spray-on water repellent to your boots.
For outdoor activities this boot is second to none. Comfortable and durable, they're sure to get you to your destination. These boots are fantastically sturdy and offer good overall protection without sacrificing comfort. If you plan on going hunting or airsofting/paintballing, then this boot has you covered too.

As of writing this review I‘m currently in the swiss army and was issued these boots. I prefer these over the 3x more expensive new KS 19 leicht. Really comfortable once the soften up. Good in warm weather and ok in colder weather. Wouldn‘t use them as winter shoes or in heavy rain. If you‘re going to buy these I recommend getting some shoe grease and clean them at least once a week or before storing them. The grease makes the leather a lot softer so be generous in the beginning.
I was the last year of soldiers that these were issued to and I‘m sad they‘re going away. Amazing shoes for 80$
My pair arrived today. Arrived within 3 days, very fast shipping and was updated as to the whereabouts of my new boots every step of the way!
Overall boot's are very decent despite being second hand. Aside from a few scuffs and scrapes (which were disclosed when I brought them so it's cool) they were in excellent condition and when I polished them the scuffs and scrapes disappeared anyway and they turned out beautiful. And when I tried them on I was amazed at the level of comfort and security my feet felt when walking around. The boots feel very solid and not sloppy or loose at all. Alot of eyelets also to make the shoe tight with the laces. The sole was also slightly padded which adds for comfort the boots also have good ankle and heel support and any flexing of your foot in the shoe feels fine and supported.
Honestly overall these are a fine pair of boots and if you look after them I believe they will last a long time 10/10 very happy. Always a pleasure to buy from Army and Outdoors once again. 👍
To who evers reading this grab yourself a pair and see what I mean.
I never used to trust Switzerland,
They sell me cheese that is riddled with holes, then charge me a fortune for a watch that only works slightly better than an imitation, then bank the profits off my naivety in a frigid tax Haven, then they make pocket knives with draconian tools on them, and guard the Pope in rediculous jester outfits while keeping all their hi tech tactical gear hidden in the Vatican armoury...
But then I bought these boots!!
No holes where holes shouldn't be
No diamond encrusted price tag
No laundering required
No draconian obsolescence
No religious leadership protection unit disguised as a clown with a hidden machine gun...
Just excellent quality, comfort and value. These boots are pretty close to indestructible.
They have outlasted several pairs of boots that were over twice the price.
Politically, they're definitely not neutral, more like mercenary, they're on your side as long as you wear them.
I would buy these again, but I probably won't need to.
Thanks Switzerland, I'm sorry we got off on the wrong foot.
I needed a pair of new boots at the last minute, for a paintball event.
Went into the Christchurch store with intentioms of grabbing a pair of jungle boots. Ended up grabbing these boots instead and let me say, they are awesome value for money.
Without even being broken in, i ran multiple kilometers during the games, without any wear on my own feet. Not only that, but they felt great underfoot. Will definitely by my goto boots, now and in the future
I second the other review! Best value boots in the country - beautiful swiss quality product!
I also purchased the swiss cleaning kit - a must have to keep these boots in top shape!
