These classic cast iron hob nails for boots are still manufactured in a British cast iron foundry - just as they have been for over 100 years.
These are perfect for WW2 re-enactors to add to their boots. We sell them in sets of 26 (13 per boot). In 1941, a shortage of materials led to the reduction of hob nails in boots from 18 to 13 per boot. These have a textured grip on the surface of the stud.
Putting studs on the soles of your shoes or boots will greatly prolong their life. And if you're after that 'drill sergeant click' or the 'crunch' of a marching regiment then these won't disappoint. Often used in conjunction with heel and toe plates (sold separately).
Fixing couldn't be easier. Simply place the seg over the area of the sole to be protected and tap home with two or three sharp blows from a hammer. Ideal for brogues, ammo and drill boots.
Caution should be exercised when walking with studs on some surfaces. Not suitable for soles with air pockets, e.g. Dr Martens.
Q & A's
Q & A's
Q: How long are the spikes? I have a pair of viking boots with less than 1/4 thick soles and would like to find short spiked studs to fit them with.
A: The length of the spike itself is approx 10mm.
Reviews (any views expressed are solely those of the reviewer)
Great for that extra grip.
Used them on my Viking (living history) boots to stop sliding around the battlefield.
Pros: Great grip., Easy to fit.
Cons: Extra slippy on tiles no shock.
Would recommend: Yes
