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

    Walk into any store that sells shoes and ask to have both your feet measured. 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.

      Best Boots I have ever worn

      Maybe I have little idiot boy feet because I had to order a whole size below my shoe measurement to get a nice snug fit with thick socks.

      OTHER than my pride being hurt by going down lower in single digit shoe sizes I really enjoy these boots. I wear them every day at work and they look good enough to not throw off my formal attire (not tucking pants in just pulling pants over the laces)

      Great foot bed but you might need a cushioned insole if you're going to be on your feet all day.

      I took these through a river hike for about 3 miles and they were completely water tight until the water level came up past my shins.

      Heavy Fokkin Boots

      These are definitely heavy duty as advertised, perfect for stomping your way through a winter wonderland. These are probably the sturdiest boots that I own! I got the "good" condition ones and they look and feel great (just weathered enough to have character). Thanks again!

      Great boots

      I wear a size 11 but I ordered a size 11.5 and it fit perfectly. I was scared that the "good" boots were going to need some repair or possibly a resole, but the boots I got are just lightly used, with just some minor scuffing that will polish out. Only "repair" I had to do was bend back one of the hooks. I've only worn them out once, but they are really warm and even walking through slush my feet stayed warm and dry. Definitely my new duty boot for work
