  1. unfortunatly they are very tricky on ice.seems the rubber hardened out on the soles and so you are slipping on ice very much.just tried it out some days ago.more than one time i nearly fall in nothing for ice.nevereless cool boot like it and it was cheap

  2. I'm from Sweden and we got them in the army when we where doing military service. No one liked those boots with rubber. We used others year around.

  3. Dont buy these boots. I know people who used them in the army and they suck. People would get blisters and stuff. They were part of a uniform that during the sixties only existed i three sizes. These were made when the army had to supply an army consistning of one million men. The army didnt spend much developing these. But the new 90's boots are great and the army still use them today so get those instead

  4. Are this boots good for warm weather? I need boots that i can use in snow and also be able to use them in warmer weather without getting to hot.

  5. Was looking for something like this video! Thanks, think these will be great to replace my current ones. Do you do them in size 12?
