    Bath of water for a couple of days.
    Plenty of dubbin to keep the leather soft.
    THEN tab out in them for a couple of miles a day for a week and you should be good to go.

    If not, bin them and buy Meindls!!

    Im pretty sore on boots and they never seem to last me very long, so when I saw
    these I thought I would take a gamble on a pair. I bought a pair of the
    extreme cold weather boots for sixty knicker...

    I have wore them a couple of times now and they are undoubtedly completely
    waterproof and breathable ..They have a lot of support and are very similar to
    my Altbergs, who apparently were contracted to make these boots for some
    military units...are they made by Altberg? I don't know for sure but they are VERY
    similar.

    Of course I can't comment on how well they will last, but the leather is good
    quality, and very thick, the sole Vibram.

    Compared with the £300.00 I paid for my Berghaus boots and gaiters, on the
    face of it these seem to be a gift for the price.

    My first impression is a boot perfect as a winter staking / shooting boot .. fantastic
    value for money so far.

    Hi Erik

    Saw those, but being "Desert Fox" boots, they're not going to be the most waterproof kit I'd own!!

    In my comment, I was talking from experience of wearing in boots, and was making that point that if you cant be *rsed, then buy Meindl... However, I'd buy something with ...tex in the title, as this is sunny UK, not downtown Dustbowl

    Cheers
