Jungle pattern boots with a sandy twist.

Made by Haix, these were built for the German Naval deck crews. Insulated for hot and cold, quick drying, and reinforced in the toe and heel ⁠— You wouldn't think Suede boots could be so resilient. 

However with an Oil and Fuel resistant Anti-static sole to top things off, you should feel confident sticking your foot in most places shy of punji traps.

Condition

Boots are in Excellent to Great condition. The main difference between boots is the color and cosmetic condition of the hydrophobic suede. The natural color can variy from medium to khaki brown, and may exhibit light scuffing, dirt, and signs of use.

Taking care of Suede

As with most things, prevention is the best step to keeping suede shoes clean. A spray-on suede protector will help protect the leather from dirt and stains.

Regularly brushing the leather with a suede brush or a soft bristle brush removes loose dirt from the surface,  prevents said dirt from getting matted into the fibers over time, and keeps the fibers looking fresh.

Small scuffs are usually just spots in the leather where the fibers have become matted down. If brushing isn't lifting the fibers, running a knife or a thin edged object lightly over the area will help reduce the matting.

For water stains, the best removal method is to lightly wet the affected area and dab with a rag, until the color and texture is even. Place the boot on a shoe/boot tree, or fill it with paper to hold the boots shape as it dries. Once it has dried, brush over the surface with a soft dry brush.

For tougher stains like salt and mud, use a mix of 2 parts water to 1 part white vinegar  to lightly wet the leather until the color and texture are even. After letting it dry, brush with a soft bristle brush.

These are the most common methods for caring for suede boots, and more in-depth, niche guides can be found through a quick search on the web.

Rugged, Breathable, Steeltoe

Came In pretty good condition. with it being suede scratches dont show up nearly as much. Very few stains on them, barely noticeable. Took them on a camping trip and it was amazing, best footwear of the group. Also, easy to tie at the ankle without doing the speed hooks and just slipping on and off

Bit rough but good to go

if I expected surplus boots to be in pristine condition I'd be retarded the boots have a bit of scuffing and some old dirt and stains but nothing a little but of elbow grease and hard work eon't fix.

Well Made Boot

Extremely well made boot. Quality is on par with American-made styles (Danner, Redwing, etc.) and a third of the cost. Mine came in like-new condition, with the only signs of wear in the inserts. Tread is 95%+. Weight is light for an all-leather ankle-high boot, perfect for the occasional day hike and weekend warrior. Sizing is nuts on, something I didn't expect and I ordered a half-size larger. Has plastic-toe and heel reinforcements, which you may or may not like.

Some things to note, the heel reinforcement is very stiff and gives me heel rub in anything but full arctic-thick sock, part of which is probably because I ordered a half-size larger and part of that is due to very dry leather (ORDER YOUR NATURAL SIZE). I've put about 25 miles on them and they're just now starting to conform to my foot. I'm going to give the leather a treatment to see if it will soften up.

Worth it

Great boots, true to size, generous toe box. I'll be breaking them in shortly. A worthy successor to my destroyed Merrell footwear. Will probably be perfect for hikes and 4G warfare.
