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.

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.

    Like-New

    • The item has been used, but remains in like-new condition. Suitable for discerning collectors and for use as a high quality master reference.

    Excellent 

    • Some small decernable signs of being used that would rule out "like new" condition. Otherwise perfect functional and aesthetic condition.
    • Signs of use may include subtle internal/external markings, such as rank, unit, or soldier serial number.

    Great

    • Perfect functional condition with only minor cosmetic blemishes, abrasions, or other signs of use---lightly used and well cared for.
    • The item may show more noticeable internal/external writing, such as rank, serial numbers, etc.

    Good

    • Clear cosmetic blemishes, abrasions, or other signs of use that have not compromised functionality. Essentially, normal equipment used within normal parameters.
    • The item may exhibit clear internal/external writing. This may include rank, serial numbers, etc.

    Battle-Damaged 

    • Significant cosmetic blemishes, abrasion, or other signs of use that have compromised functionality in some way. We have higher standards here---most battle-damaged items can be easily repaired with a new buckle, minor sewing, etc.

          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"

          Why do I only have Austrian boots.

          These boots are pretty comfy. So much so my dad is buying a pair. My only real complaint is that they make my ankles look swoll. Other than that 10/10.

          Austrian Winter Boots

          Solid surplus from the land of failed painters. I ordered the good condition pair. The left boot does have shallow cuts in the leather in the toe area.
