Breaking in your boots

Generally, these Austrian boots have already seen some use. This does mean that the leather is not as stiff as new boots, but a breaking-in period is still recommended.

To break in your boots, wear them as often as possible over a one-to-two-week period of regular activity (think grocery store trips, not hiking trips or guerrilla warfare). Use good, full-length wool socks, and take note if you feel any "hot spots" while walking around. Friction between your foot and the boot causes blisters. Breaking in your boots should help with this.

If hot spots persist, silk or synthetic "liner socks" (worn under your wool ones) are a cheap and easy way to protect your feet. They are freely available at most outdoors stores.

 

Sizing

The Austrian Ranger runs true to size. If you plan to wear your boots with a thick insole and medium/thick socks, buy one size bigger.

For those with wide feet, you should follow your general style of fitting into normal shoes.

Exchanges & Warranty

If your size doesn't fit you correctly, please contact us within 30 days. The entire cost of your first exchange will be covered by KommandoStore, including postage to and from your CONUS address.

          Perfect for the bandit on a budget

          Have you ever been in an unspecified zone in an an unspecified area in an unspecified time and thought "Fuck, my feet are colder than a witch's dick.....and I have a net worth of $8 and a ham sandwich" ?

          Well fear not my fellow marauding rapscallion, Kommando Store has exactly what you need.

          The Austrian KAZ 03 Alpine 'Ranger' Boot©®™℠ is the perfect affordable boot to keep your frostbitten tootsies warm when extorting Bosnian children.

          Austrian scientists have harnessed the power of some gay nerd shit, I don't know, to ensure that your romper stompers are insulated from the cold, water, and various bodily fluids.

          However these being surplus boots they will most likely arrive to you with no laces and smelling like a Turkish poon house, as mine did.

          But hey thats a small downside for such a great deal.

          Comfortable fit, quality build.

          I’ve had these boots for about nine months and they are my favorite pair of footwear I’ve had. It has a leather insole that is very comfortable. My only issue with them was I got a ‘great’ condition pair, and one of them had a big chunk taken outta the leather on the toe.

          A Big-Old Price-Effective Stomping Boot

          These boots, while looking somewhat visually appealing, can at times be uncomfortable to wear. The pair I received was a little scuffed, and the soles had to be replaced. I wouldn't recommend these unless you were on a budget or just needed some boots to LARP in. Make sure to break in before wearing them. After changing the soles and breaking in, I was pleasantly surprised.
