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.

          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.

          Ausgezeichneter Alpenstiefel! Korrekt! Perfekt!

          News flash! In spite of subversive elements extensive efforts KommandoStore top operatives were able to supply Doctor Jones with the boots he so desperately needed.

          When asked for comment Indy replied KommandoStores top operatives are the best! The really saved me this time.

          These boots are the real deal. The holy grail of old school combat boots. Made in a country where boys are men and men are legend. None of that Peta compliant stuff designed by the Berkeley college of art, or looks like it belongs on the school play ground. They are not big and puffy and padded for her comfort either. Designed by the MBA in the accounting dept., forget that too! Good old fashioned old school boots that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be proud to wear.

          All leather, resoleable, Norwegian welt, NOT made in a country where people want to kill you. Think about that!

          The legendary Austrian M59. Korrekt! Perfekt! Das is Österreichisch! Jawohl mein Herr!

          Doctor Jones also stated his boots looked like new, just some slight creases on the toe box. True to size, comfortable with the original insole. Doctor Jones 5 star seal of approval!

          The virgin Waxi boot vs. the chad M59

          Beefy boots for beefy lads. These boots take stomping around like the sperg you are to a whole nother level.

          I wanted some good looking winter boots and baby i got em. The Waxi boots are killer style wise but winter isn't really the climate they thrive in. The M59's could take a trip to the zone and would still be asking for more.

          Got them in great condition and the boots are not even close to being broken in yet. The insoles are imprint free and the chunky af outsoles have zero wear as well which is excellent.

          I was moderately concerned on first glance about the state of the toebox area but shoe trees fixed the problem almost immediately.

          Got them oiled up and ready to break in tommorow.

          (Ps. Every night I pray to the big Ivan in the sky that we get a restock on thos GAT repo's. I would probably bust a thicc load in my flecktarn pants)

          Good leather boots for nice price.

          I received a pair of Good Cnd 10.5-11 boots. They featured hanging grommets. The foot pocket was padded and supple. The leather is in good condition, although the sole wasn’t as good. While the tread was reasonably fresh (the soft orange peel texture still present on most of the soles’ lugs), The heels seemed to be deteriorating. It seemed glue was cracking and the sole was splitting off. Suppose this is the nature of surplus, right? The boots went to a shoe cobbler and for $10 and a day, we will see how the boots fare in Kentucky hills. Will update or pot second review later.
