Found some a Bundeswehr Pilot boots in all leather or textile shaft part leather. Looking for a lighter weight boot for my daughter. I placed an order for the full leather version. $80Cad surplus.
I imagine the sole would be replaceable but I'm no expert! I've had mine at least six years and although not worn constantly they are worn regularly (they're not waterproof so not worn so much in the winter) and really don't have a great deal of wear to the soles. They certainly seem more robust than my more recently acquired Scarpas.Swotty, can you let on haw these worked out for you? And is the sole easily replaceable. Looks like it might wear quickly.
Haha...I have the same problemDoes Though only insamuch as I will now go buy said items. lol
Did you find they fit right first time?
You need Jaga Flex from GEA Waldviertler in Austria.Hello everyone,
I happen to be quite unsuccessful in my search for the ideal boots so I came in hope to find enlightenment thanks to your wisdom and knowledge.
I'm a simple man searching for simple things, but apparently this is a harder task today than one may think at first.
So I'm looking for what would be (to me) the ideal outdoor shoes : a lightweight pair of leather boots, high shaft (between 15 and 18cm), sewn tong, flat and flexible soles, laces, no padding, no waterproof membrane, no fancy stuff, no awfully expensive price.
And well, I found only one pair that could fit my needs, which is the Byteks cobra boots, and that's all, which I find quite odd as to me, this is what I would call basic outdoor boots for stuff outside trails.
Would some of you have other options in mind that would fit the bill and help me extend my list from one model to more than one by any chance ?
Yeah, thought about those but can get GEA boots cheaper and somehow I trust the Austrians to make good boots!I am going to Devon this summer so am going to get fitted for greenshoes boots. Not cheap, but made to measure and tick each of your specifications.
