    Norwegian army issue M-77 field boots.

    Norwegian army issue M-77 field boots.

    It's minus 15*C outside, and thse are excactly as cold as I remember them from when I used to wear them in anger...
    Luckilly there are some tricks to keeping your feet warm. Like thermal innsoles, a pair of thin wool socks under a pair of thick wool socks, and wearing
    Norwegian army over boots over your boots...or you can do what I did. I.e get your fat bottom inside, preferably with your feet still attached.

    I was out trying to get some Aurora Borealis pictures, but only managed a few out of focus shots, and by the time I had figured out what camera settings worked for tonight,
    the lady had danced away.

    Can't win every time, but at least my feet are warm again :-)

    👍 there will be more of these opportunities no doubt.
    Wool socks indeed.
    Over here, the Arctic army surplus socks are enough to keep my feet warm but at -15 it might be a little different

    They look similar to my uncle's jungle boots that he wore during his time in the US Army (81nd Airborne). They were a poor design, though, better suited to cold or at least dry environments. Wouldn't take long for them to rot in Vietnam, and those boots had a reputation for severe chafing.

    Anyway, did the Norwegian army ever issue mukluks for winter wear?
