Title: deathwatch style boots
Post by: Tahl Taab on May 07, 2010, 08:27 AM
 I was asked by Ray'k to help him find some Israeli combat boots like I have (which look to be a dead match for our new deathwatch) so here's a nice list of boots and sources. Yes you can get them in many colors from Pallidum (spelling) so have fun everyone.

this guy says the "ridge" ones fit large and is selling a pair that says 11 but are a size 12.

Nice find! I assume that last link is $14.99 euros?

My step-dad wanted a pair of these, he loves boots. Being a machinist he tends to run through them quick too, so we tend to buy him some for fathers day XD

glad to help, I have a black pair and have had them for a while. I love the things, they let your feet breath and dry out fast, what's not to love. ;)

If you get the ones from Palidium, wear dress socks but the scorpian ones I think regular socks will be ok. ( the actual Israeli ones fit narrow)

Damn it.

I looked exactly  for a pair of shoes like this  in Black   for  a couple of months...

But then i've decide  to stick to the "Panama" Jungle-Boot.


Hm... but I've see in your links...  Some are not in my size, and most of them are  with international shipment a long bow over my shoe-budget...   


maybe for the next kit.    ;D

It's been a few years, but the Nato shop in Schwienfurt had carried these boots in stock, if it's not to far of a bahnhof trip I'd hit it up.
Good eats in the marktplatz too! I think I still have the business card, might have to dig to find it, I might be able to give you the number, just gimme a bit of time to hunt it down.
