I mean, don't wear them with white sneakers...

...'cause that would just look silly. Very thick leather. Solid buckles. An interesting fashion choice- I can't think of a time I'd wear these in public, but great for doing work in thicker brush.
Excellent value

I bought these to wear while riding my Swiss Military MO-93 bike in the rain and for hiking. Heavy construction will last a long time. My first pair purchased was almost new and 30 years old. The second pair was more worn, but Inlike them because they are more flexible, so no wearing in required. Both in great shape. Works on my running shoes and my USMC RAT boots. Should last a long time.
Sturdy!

I use mine to keep rocks and snow out of my boots when hiking. Works well and seems bombproof! Make sure to grease yours up for long life with a product like Ekol leather oil or simlar!

These have a lot of of adjustment holes, so they should fit many folks. Those with huge calves beware, though!
Solid Gear

These are exactly what you see. Thick leather gaiters in great shape for a good price. You will likely have a hard time fitting them on boots with a tennis show like heavy molded sole since those types of boots tend to be "chunkier" but on boots with a more traditional sole they will work just fine.
Good set of gaiters
Review by Ricardo

After an application of black boot polish these gaiters looked good as new. The straps were a little worn but still in excellent condition. Well worth their price and will hold up for a very long time.
Nice product
Review by Richard

Bought these to stop gravel and debris from getting in my hiking shoes. The leather was in good condition, and just needed a little cleaning up with a damp rag. The straps are solid, but well used. There were two rivets that were broken one each gaiter, but I easily replaced them with new rivets bought at a craft store. Now they are solid.
These gaiters are tough as nails and although they are worn, they have a lot of life left in them.
There are nothing like these on the civilian market, and nothing at this low cost.
Excellent buy.
awesome

I couldn't believe my eyes when i opened the box. Mine were in brand new condition and so heavy. I was expecting cheap wore out junk but the leather was so thick and well made. I have a pair of US jump boots from 1991 and they work perfect on them also gives them a badass look.
Nice Gaiters

These gaiters are in very good condition for their age. Still have plenty of wear left in them. Typical high quality from the Swiss.
Very thick leather, definitely used but worn in so they fit comfortable.

Very thick leather, definitely used but worn in so they fit comfortable. They'll need some leather treatment but they should last a long time.
Great Protection for Most Boots
Review by Allen

Pros:
• Thick leather construction means that rips, tears and damage are unlikely, unless you are walking through high grass made of razor blades.
• Heavy buckle construction is sturdy. You can put a lot of weight into tightening the buckles and they don’t break.
• They work as advertised. The heavy leather not only protects your legs from damage, but it keeps mud, dust and other muck off of your boots. This can significantly lengthen the life of your boots.
Cons:
• The bottom strap that goes underneath the boot is made specifically for Swiss mountain boots. It is designed to loop under the arch. However, if you use boots with no arch in them (such as the old USGI Jungle boots with ripple soles). The strap will not fully fit into the groove of the ripple sole and you will end up walking on, and therefore wearing out the strap.
• The bottom strap can be a bit difficult to cinch down, but it’s not a huge deal. Just put some muscle into it.
