Low Boots

Postby breadfish » Sat Jul 29, 2017 10:41 am

I just had a quick scan of the forum to see if i oculd answer my question but to no avail.

Ive been looking for some time to buy a nice pair of low boots for my Heer impression. There are many copies, all vary in price. I've recently discovered the Richard Underwood ones that look very nice. But before i go spending, are there any reputable retailers of said boot i should check out first? And more importantly any I should avoid?

many thanks
Rich

The best quality low boot for a decent price is from Nestof in Poland. I have seen the quality first hand and they hold up extremely well and the shipping came in under a week for my friend. If you have money and time then I would suggest Lerderarsenal or is known as Berger, these are the best boot on the market but comes at a high price and a long time as they are handmade. Both boots are in the M37 style.

Hope this helps!

If you want something a bit more cheap and cheerful, I got some of the all rough out boots from militaria. net a few years ago and they've been surprisingly good. As tough as old boots (see what I did there :)) and haven't lost a single hobnail.

I did have to put on many, many coats of dubbin and soak the laces in neatsfoot oil.

I know its an old post but I thought I'd clarify that the boots that are sold by Richard Underwood are the boots made by Nestoff, also Soldier of Fortune now hold the Richard Underwood stock under the RUM brand name. The best make of boots in Europe that I know of are made by Lederarsenel. They are expensive but better to buy one excellent pair of boots than a few crappy quality pairs.
