We recommend going a size down, when you're on the fence. The M77s were originally designed for Northern feet, that tend to be wider and feel larger than normal.
M77 Combat Boots
Virtually unchanged since their adoption in 1977, these boots remain the standard-issue footwear in the Norwegian army. Their shell-style construction also offers remarkable modularity, giving wearers total control over their choice of socks.
With proper care, the thick leather becomes water repellent, while the inclusion of hooks and D-rings simplifies the lacing process. The absence of inner lining or padding ensures fast drying, and the PU outsole provides stability and compatibility with NATO bindings.
The M77 boots we provide are manufactured in Europe according to the NATO AQAP 2110 standard.
Brief history of the M77s
M77 Combat boots, are one of the best-known military boots in the world and are also our top 1 bestseller. They are so legendary that they are even mentioned on the Wiki page of Combat boots. So it is probably not a big surprise that the Norwegian media recently went through the story of a former soldier who tattooed the M77 boots on his hand.
It took ten years to adjust the M77 boot for the Norwegian army harsh requirements for boot resistance, comfort, gravity and moisture resistance. In addition, it was essential that, at the same time, boots are easy to maintain. The result is no-nonsense comfortable, breathable and water-repellent boots made only of thick 2.8-3 mm full-grain leather, steel and polyurethane. The anatomical insole is shockproof, antibacterial, breathable and washable.
And most importantly, they are durable. Just keep the boots well-greased. As with full leather boots, it may take some time to wear them in, but if they are already worn in, they are as good as it gets. These boots are unisex and designed for both men and women. The sizes run large, intended to be worn with thermal or even double socks. Also, if you plan to wear them in freezing winters, we recommend our inner socks that are made precisely for M77.
In conclusion, they are probably one of the best value-for-money boots in the world.
