Excellent construction, great fit (a little on the large size, and wide) but happy to have some room for thick socks. Very happy to see these reproduced and done properly. Love the anti-tracking soles.

Very well made (2022-06-04)
Obviously not a copy of your exact Army issue Rhodie boots, but a very good copy of one of the clandestine types which were available for private purchase at the time. Well made and true to size. These would be great for any re-enactor and will save using the real deal. (They are too rare to wear now anyhow) Also, these would be a nice retro alternative for hiking and camping. All in all, very nice boots which no one would tell are not contemporary!

Great! Wide, but good, and surprisingly good quality (2022-01-06)
I received these boots on 23/04/2022, and see if I could break them to test the breaking point.
I failed so far.
I have humped about a hundred miles thus far with a load of 30-45 lbs (either by ruck, or child), survived a volleyball game or two, and have passed the climbing test. For the price point they can't be beat for a repro boot. So far only one sole is starting to tongue which is fine since I wanted a lug sole anyways. But buy with confidence, and know that while they'll probably sit in your closet they they will perform to the same standards as the originals would have
