Description

These Bundeswehr (German Army) desert boots are exactly what you would expect quality wise - however for a 'desert' boot they have a few surprises. The designers must of had Afghanistan in mind when designing these as they have a lightweight waterproof Gore-Tex® lining. Environments like Afghanistan have a huge amount of variation in climate from scorching desert to freezing snow. These boots cover them all.

Every military boot needs a good sole. These boots have good deep treads on them for cross country performance and are non-slip/puncture resistant, performing equally well on more urban surfaces. The outer layer consists of a suede leather lining and Gore-Tex® patches to let your feet breathe. On the inside the boots have a thin, flexible Gore-Tex® lining to protect from water/cold, yet not too thick so you can still keep cool when it is hot climates. The insoles are moisture wicking so you can dry them out easily, something everyone needs when sweating away in the heat. If you are after a tough, lightweight boot that can handle summer and winter, then these boots might just be for you!

Features:

  • Genuine German Army surplus
  • Gore-Tex® breathable & waterproof lining
  • Suede leather outer lining
  • Non-slip, antistatic, oil & puncture resistant sole
  • Lightweight build
  • Thin heat insulation
  • Moisture wicking, washable, quick-drying insole
  • Six eyelet speed lace system

 

Sizing: UK shoe sizes are the same as NZ/AU. For more information on boot sizes, check out our sizing guide.
Weight:
 Approx 1.8kg
Colour: Tan
Condition:
Used/Good -  Item is well used. Some may be discoloured/dirty but will mostly buff out with a good wash. There may be marks and signs of wear, but still lot's of life left. If you want more information on our condition ratings, check out our condition guide

*Note* There is a rare chance that the soles have degraded due to age. We cannot test for this as to check would require us to wear each boot for an extend period of time. If you should find yourself with such a pair, contact us immediately with a photo of the boots for a refund or exchange.

Really surprised

Bought these as replacements for my old boots. They have just arrived, so can't say anything about durability but:

a) wow they feel soft to walk in
b) wow they are barely used, would call them 'near brand new'

They are well-fitting so as others have said if in doubt use half a size larger than usual.

Have had these since new three to four years
Used mainly for hunting in the southern alps . I have found them to be hard wearing and extremely comfortable and hopefully they will find some more UN issued ones as I really like and rate them

The boots I received are quite literally as new. I think they look and feel great and as with virtually everything I have purchased from A&O, quality and delivery times are fantastic.
However, the size I purchased (UK8) is unfortunately quite tight across the bridge of the foot and quickly becomes painful to wear. I have persevered in trying to wear them in, hoping they will stretch, but to date after about 8 hours of wear, they are still tight and uncomfortable across the bridge - I guess in someways that is a testimony to their quality, that they are not going to stretch anytime soon.
I always purchase UK8 and seldom ever experienced shoes/boots being too tight, but I guess that is one of the risks when you cannot try something on before purchase. In hindsight I should have gone for a UK8.5 (possibly even a UK9) as I think that would have been the perfect fit for me and I'm almost tempted to buy another pair (in a larger size) as I really do like these boots.

German desert boots

I already have the German combat boots and they are great; comfortable, tough and hard wearing so I was expecting similar things from these Haix boots and I am not disappointed. They are comfortable and look very durable and nearly new. Extremely fast delivery too - 48 hours. Extremely happy with these.
