M77 aka Norwegian 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. Also, here is tech speaker and creator Morten Rand-Hendriksen reviewing M77 boots on TikTok, attracting more than 400k views. He even calls them ‘the best pair of boots you’ll ever buy.’

The first version of the M77s was delivered more than 50 years ago to the Norwegian military and several NATO armies also trust the M77 today, including the Norwegian. It took ten years to develop the M77 boot, as the Norwegian army had 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, but we understand they are not for everyone.

  1. Aleksander

    It takes some time to break them in, but once they’re broken in (I learned this the hard way), they’ll last for years in almost any condition.

  2. Jaak

    Years in mud, swamps, forests, snow, through fresh and salt water, smeared, polished with a rag and moving forward with a straight back 😎

  3. Harri

    You should get a size smaller, otherwise they’ll be loose. Initially, you may need to grease them well with seal oil or wax. Once they’re broken in, they’re super comfortable.

  4. Laura

    Great boots. Comfortable and high quality. My husband really likes them. 🙂
