Jungle Boots

  • We have an excellent reproduction of the famed Okinawa Boots available. These boots are made in Portugal by Pike Brothers of Germany and are a faithful recreation of the originals. Before now there has not been a good option for these boots. Originals are near impossible to find and sell at $800 when you do find them, so at that point you do not want to wear them. The Oki Boots repro years ago vanished and there are some terrible Chinese reproductions floating around that use original photos to lure you in and then sell you something that looks like it was made in kindergarten fashion class. These are made on a traditional "regular" width last, so order your regular boot size if you are whole size (unless you have wide feet you may need to bump up). If you are a half size, order the next size up. Please note these are made in European sizes (42 = 8R, 43 = 9R, 44 = 10R, 45 = 11R, 46 = 12R) and the sizes are on the box are correct, BUT underneath the buckle cuff (where it cannot be seen) the manufacturer was off by one shoe size on the marking, so for example an American 12R will be marked 13R. Don't panic, it is still a 46 / American 12R. For background, the Okinawa were made in the 1950's and are the US Army's first attempt at a modern jungle boot. The boots are basically WWII Double Buckle boots that have been redesigned with canvas parts for tropical climates. The lug soles were still stitched to the body of the boot so they could be replaced vs the later use a vulcanization process. The boots are often seen worn by early advisers who departed for Vietnam from Okinawa, hence the name. Learn More

  • Jungle Boots, 3rd Pattern, Vibram Sole. These are excellent reproductions made in Germany by Pike Brothers. Excellent quality and eye for detail, these boots are made like the early 3rd patterns without the spike protective plate. The boots are made on a wide last, and are available in whole sizes, 8 through 13. As they are a wide, they run a little larger than a regular width. If you wear a half size, drop down vs ordering up. The original mesh "do not boil" insole could not be reproduced with satisfactory results so it was decided to just not include an additional insole. By having the wide last, this will allow you to put whatever insole is most comfortable for you (for example any of the store brand, Dr Scholls, etc). The the market on original Vibram sole boots breaking the $350 a pair mark, why risk a mint pair having soles that crack or destroying a piece of history. This is a new run! Improvements have been made to include thicker leather and nylon, new mil-spec nylon and improved dye lots / ink stamps. The first run looked good and help up well, but these look even better (and size 13 was added)! Learn More

  • Jungle Boots, Reproduction. These are new made jungle boots by Rothco with panama soles, green canvas uppers and black leather. Overall they look pretty good, but they will not have the durability of USGI boots. That being said, they are perfect for reenacting. Available in whole sizes only. Imported. * A note on fit: if you wear a half size, you will likely want to order down vs up. I have had several clients state these boots run a little large. Learn More
