Pilots aka Hawk Pilot Boots

(1 customer review)

The Hawk Pilot boots or Pilots are military-grade pilot boots that not only look durable but are. Pilots are full leather boots developed based on one of the most legendary military boots ever, M77, aka Norweigan combat boots. Pilots have the quality and durability of M77s. Still, they also have a lace lock system developed according to the pilot’s needs that allows for tying boots faster and hiding laces after tying. In addition to the lacing system, there is a waterproof lock on the inner side of the shoes. Pilots are made of the strongest 2,2-2,4 mm water-repellent full-grain leather, and Cambrelle textile lining under the vamp keeps the boots comfortable and dry. And yes, your feet will also be warm in a typical winter. The removable anatomical insole is antibacterial, breathable, and washable. Multiple NATO armies use Hawk Pilot boots, so we are sure they do okay for your everyday needs. Pilots are manufactured in Estonia according to NATO AQAP 2110 quality standards. The pilot boots are the go-to boots of Roland and Joosep, the two founders of the whatshoes. Pilots will be shipped to you directly from the factory.

  1. Joosep

    I’ve been a proud owner of Pilot boots for over a year, and here’s my take on them. The boots exhibit admirable durability and perform excellently across three seasons, but they fall short during the hot summer days. The rich, thick black leather is of superior quality, offering longevity and a sharp look. However, this high-grade material and the internal lining compromise the boots’ breathability during summer. The heat retention makes them slightly uncomfortable in hot weather conditions, making them less than ideal for summertime wear. For the rest of the year, the Pilot boots stand out as a superior choice. They stay true to their promise of comfort, sturdiness, and an appealing aesthetic. Despite the summertime setback, the Pilots are an excellent investment for conscious consumers who don’t care about wearing trending brands
