distressed altberg defender boots

For absolute bargain! i was surprised how good the condition was! yes, the soles are worn in places but apart from that they are spot on! ideal for walking the dog,fishing,hiking,bushcrafting etc. in my local army surplus these would have cost 40quid! delivery was quick with very good comms from goarmy. so if your after a pair of good boots and dont want to pay 200+ for a new pair these are the kiddies!!! good enough for the british army, good enough for me!! well done goarmy!

Distressed Boots

I bought some “distressed” boots thinking I could just give them a wax & a polish to supple them up. I was amazed when they arrived, yes they were discoloured in some places but other than that they were spot of for second hand boots. I have waxed them now to help loosen off the leather a touch but Other than that these boots are spot on for the price! I’m ex Army myself & Will most definitely order again!

So Impressed I Bought A Pair Of Grade 1's As Well!

As per the title. I was so impressed with how comfortable the distressed pair I had delivered last week that I bought a pair of Grade 1 Alt-Berg's this week. As an ex serviceman I can only wish we had these when I served. They are way more comfortable than the old DM's we had in the 1970s. The advice to buy a size bigger than you would normally wear is spot-on, even if you go for the wide fitting.
Both pairs look like they have plenty of life left in them but, when I need another pair, I know where I will look first.
