Fredericci Brand (Made In Poland)
Reproduction Late War Jackboots. These boots are made by Fredericci out of Poland and they are absolutely gorgeous, they stand behind their products
so much that they offer a 2 year limited warranty (details below).
have been working with Fredericci extensively on these boots for close
to a year and we now have a quality boot at an unbelievable price that
cannot be beat. These boots were made from the ground up by taking
apart originals and using them for templates.
boots are constructed using a 2.5-3mm natural veg tanned cow hide
leather with smooth uppers and rough out lowers. These are fully impregnated (oil/grease) and dyed black. The soles/heels are made out of a very specific Italian sole leather that is oiled and machine
waxed to seal them up tight.
Just like the
originals the uppers and soles are attached using the blake welting
method as well as 2 rows of wood pegs. The wood pegs go all the way thru
and are not just there for show.
The blake welting method or blake stitch explained; the upper is wrapped around the insole and attached
between it and the out-sole. A single stitch attaches everything
together. This process allows the sole to be removed when it is worn out or damaged so a new one can be installed.
bottom of the boots are finished off with reproduction steel heel/toe
irons and hobnails, again these were reproduced using originals.
boots are measured in centimeters. We strongly recommend you measure
yourself and not just go by the size inside your Nike basketball
Finding Your Size: On a hard surface (not a rug) wearing
socks stand on a piece of paper and draw an outline of your foot. Take
the outline and measure it from the longest points toe to heel in
centimeters. Then add 1.5 to 2 centimeters to that measurement this will
give you your size.
Example: If your outline measures 28cm add 1.5cm = 29.5cm
Widths: These are all a standard D width with each size they get a little wider.
Markings on Upper Explained: Example 29 6 39 229 (the last two numbers don't really mean anything for sizing)
29 insoles measurement in cm
6 width of insole/foot in cm (This is a D standard width)
39 date of production
229 factory number
First soak the lowers (about to the top of the ankle) with water and let them sit for a few
minutes. DO NOT WET THE UPPERS this could deform them. Put on whatever
socks you might wear when using your boots. After a few minutes the
boots should dry out a little so they are not soaking wet put them on.
Wear your boots around until they are dry. After they are fully dry then you need to grease them with some shoe grease this will make them water repellent. We sell Huberd's Shoe grease and we recommend you purchase some with the boots to save on shipping.
will need to seal them from time to time depending on how much you use
them, best thing to use is a type of shoe grease such as Huberd's. We sell the shoe grease and recommend you purchase a can with a new pair of boots to save on shipping.
NEVER DRY THEM INFRONT OF A FIRE OR WITH A BLOW DRYER ETC.
This goes for reenactment campfires as well. After use unlace them and
simply let them air dry, if you want to speed up the process you can
blow on them a little but you might get light headed.
Warranty: 2-year guarantee (elements that wear out - heel irons,
nails, toecaps are not covered). The warranty does not cover mechanical
damage or resulting from improper use!
