Austrian KAZ 03 Alpine 'Ranger' Boot

Current issue for the Austrian "Gebirgsjäger" mountain troops, this boot is unparalleled in alpine luxury. 

Specs

  • Hook Grommets
  • 2mm thick leather construction, full grain cowhide
  • Insulated tan leather lining along the entire throat
  • Full gusseted tongue
  • Partially perforated ankle vents lets perspiration though but keeps the environment out
  • 10”-11” tall covering and supporting the entire ankle
  • Reinforced toe cap
  • 4 rows D-ring and 5 rows of hook style speed lacing grommets

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.

          They feel good and they look cool as hell

          Been wanting a pair of these for awhile now. They are in overall pretty good condition, and they fit like a glove. If you're looking for a pair of good boots that will protect your ankles, these are the boots for you.

          Austrian KAZ 03 Alpine 'Ranger' Boot

          The boots did well, I had been given a good chance to wear them in and enjoyed them, while they were still used they met up with my expectations, so I'm happy with what I got.

          Great boots

          Haven’t worn yet but the quality is phenomenal. Will probably replace the sole in the future.

          Big Stompy

          These are big heavy stompy boots. Leather is thick. Wear on sole and toe of boot, but nothing that makes me think these won't last years. Were a bit dusty, cleaned them up with saddle soap and gave them leather contitioner and a polish and looked much better. They are a bit tight in the toe box, may want to go up a size from your regular. Had to hammer one of the lace hooks back into shape as it was bent out, no big deal. I bought a pair of these and the a pair of the Swiss Ks90's at the same time, and the KS90 is clearly the superior boot but twice the price.
