Ski season is almost upon us. That's right, ski season. The legendarily durable Austrian M59 Alpine Boots are some of the most durable and overbuilt boots we have ever seen, Leave it to the country that made Arnold Schwarzenegger. You won't be back, looking for another pair of winter boots. These are some seriously rugged boots, so rugged in fact that they were also made to work with cross country telemark ski bindings and crampons. 

Featuring 2mm thick full grain cowhide leather and a double layered foot liner and ankle support pad these built almost strong as the Austrian Oak himself.  The full gusseted tongue and tall rise keep the worst of the weather out and you precious little piggies nice and warm. Time to go the market. With the right binding choice these boots can even be used for cross country skiing, so you can do your best Simo Häyhä impression on your next ski trip. Just good luck explaining to ski patrol why you have a Mosin Nagant strapped to your ski jacket. 

Specs

  • Hook Grommets
  • 2mm thick leather, full grain cowhide
  • Double layered leather foot liner and ankle support pads
  • Full gusseted tongue
  • 10”-11” tall covering and supporting the entire ankle
  • Reinforced toe cap
  • Square toe has metal rail supports for use with old-school cross country telemark skis (if selected as a model).
  • 4 rows D-ring and 6 rows of hook style speed lacing grommets

Recommended Aesthetic and Functional Practices

Breaking In Your Boots

Generally speaking, 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, and breaking in your boots should help with this. For boots where creases have already been made in the leather from the previous user, we'd recommend using a "shoe tree" to return the boots to their original shape.

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.

    Blousing and Tucking Your Trousers

    If you are not going to tuck in your trousers when you tie your boots and you are wearing baggy pants, we recommend investing in elastic blousing garters / ""boot bands"".

    It will look cleaner and keep your trouser cuffs out of the way.

    Sizing

    The Austrian M59 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.

          Killer

          These boots rule. They were in great condition, and surprisingly soft & broken in enough to wear for 8+ hours immediately. Brushed em off, new laces & insoles, gave them an oiling and they are good to go.

          M59 Alpine Boots

          Just got these from the Bootball Raffle. Came in size 39, very clean so PERFECT for dress occasions. Perfect fit. Was hoping for a more rare boot. If anyone is interested in trading I have this and a pair of Bundeswhr Jungle boots in 42 WIDE and a pair of Bundeswhr Naval tan boots, looking for the Bundeswhr Jungle boots in 40-43 REGULAR width size.

          Excellent footwear

          Writing this review after wearing them for two weeks straight. They look and feel great. They got a versatile heavy combat work boot look to them. The ankle cushions give surprisingly good support. The only downside is they make your ankles look a lil' thick.

          "the only sin ive committed is looking so god damn good in these fuckin jeans, kickin around in my big ass boots"
