UNISSUED EAST GERMAN WOOL SOCKS

A no-nonsense full-length boot sock manufactured for standard issue in the East German "National People's Army." Complete with its own Soviet Design Bureau branding and unique sizing system (screw you West Germany), the Strumpfkombinat or Combat Sock is an all-purpose lightweight wool sock.

From what we can tell the sock itself is designed for active use in warmer weather. The lighter weight construction and thick ribbing mitigate sweat while providing a low friction, lightly padded sock suitable for duty use.

Specs

  • 100% wool
  • Ribbed knit construction
  • California believes these socks may cause cancer and reproductive harm, but they keep drinking Soylent, so take this CA warning with a grain of salt
  • This product is regulated by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and cannot be shipped via air shipping methods (we really don't know why)

      Ostalgie für deine Füße

      I'm quite happy with these socks, they look wonderful (the memes about Kommandostore being /fa/ aren't exactly wrong, but misguided), they feel great on my feet, and they breathe wonderfully, however these socks are a bit different that some of the other military surplus socks you may be familiar with. Made by the former "Max Roscher" factory in Gornau, now known Simply as "Esda" without the Communist glory, and with multiple locations across the region, these socks are definitely a warmer weather sock, or could be used as perhaps a liner sock for your thicker boot socks in the colder months. As was mentioned before, they look and feel great, but are different from other East German socks I, and perhaps yourself have purchased in the past. The cuff on the top of the sock on these socks has about an inch of Ribbing at the top, which helps them have a bit more grip than the standard knit that You see in the other pair, which is basically just a continuation of the venerable Wehrmacht sock. For me, with my larger calves, these tend to be a little grippy up top, but nothing uncomfortable and after wearing these socks to work, as well as out hiking (mild weather, ~55F) I'm confident that these will stay in the top of my sock drawer and not fall out of rotation. These can serve multiple purposes, you could use them as your every day socks if you're a fan of wool (you should be), you can use them as your standard boot sock, or you can even press them into service as an ersatz dress…

      Nice boot socks

      Pretty good and pretty cheap wool boot socks. Def a thinner warmer weather sock like it mentions. Also each pack contains two separate pairs of socks. I highly recommend everyone pick up a few if these get restocked again.
