Specs

  • Hook Grommets
  • 2mm thick leather construction, full grain cowhide
  • Insulated tan leather lining along the entire throat
  • Full gusseted tongue

  • 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.

          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.

          Middle Ground boot for middle ground needs

          When I began replacing all of my heinous Ariat work boots with surplus, I came to notice two specific sizes of boot. Either there was the sensible Paratrooper style, sturdy but slim that let your feet breathe a bit at a cost of not being entirely stab proof. Then there were the other Alpines. The size of refrigerators that made me feel like I was the tank class for the goth guild. So naturally, wanting to middle ground it, I went with these.

          PRO: Comfy big. Nice padding around the boot from the tongue to the ankle protection so you're not going to get anything breaking your bones. They're fairly comfortable all-around and do have a bit of breathing room. Not perfect but it's better than most.

          CON: The big issue I had was these being "clunky" which is down to the original soles. They suck, but you know that for a surplus boot. Swapped them in with some Dr. Scholes types and they work like a charm now. I'm prepared for winter, and I'll keep the BIG BOYS for Super Winter 2: Championship edition.

          Solid Stomping Boots

          Solid boot. Fits well. Still breaking in, not expecting to do any jogging soon.

          Made my closet smell like a well stocked armory. This is good.

          Came with writing "Bob Har" on the inside. Bob thanks for keeping your boots in good shape.

          Also they came with a small stone stubbornly embedded in the tread. Who knows where this stone has come from or how many magical places it has been? The Danube? The Alps? Or as humble as Ivan's driveway? After prying him out (no damage to the boot) I have named him "Ivan the Terrible" and he shall live up to his name after I put him inside the shoe of my enemy to gnaw on his psyche from the foot up as they flee in disarray.
