Gunnerside 42 "GS42"

The 80th anniversary edition of the boots made by famed Scottish bootmaker Robert Lawrie for the Norwegian SOE-agent Joachim Rønneberg for Operation Gunnerside during WWII is now available for pre-order.

The Gunnerside42 is a replica of the original made in 1942 with a few modern add-ons like rubber soles and speed hooks.

For the upper we choose a vegetable tanned waxy leather from Carlo Badalassi, to resemble the subtle beauty of the original. Constructed with a Norwegian welt with added storm welt, it offers fantastic comfort and extreme durability in any weather. A seldom seen wadmel ring tops the shaft to create a soft transistion for your legs while insuring both insulation and breathing. The Gunnerside last is very well balanced, and offers a wide footbed and a roomy toe.

To protect the leather sole we use a Swiss made rubber sole with excellent grip.

The 80th anniversary edition is available in black only, and production starts in March 2023.

Size chart
When purchasing boots, particularly online, it’s a good idea to have all your measurements squared away—the last thing you want are ill-fitting boots that makes you miserable! While keeping in mind that the width of the boot last and the volume of the boot are important factors in correctly sizing your boots, figuring out your Mondopoint size is a good first step.
It’s easy! Stand on top of a piece paper with your heel against a wall and all of your weight pressed down upon the foot you are measuring. Then, draw a line at your big toe. Measure (in centimeters) the length of the paper to the line, and voilà! That’s your Mondopoint size. You’ll need to measure both feet, as they seldom are equal.
Our measurements are made from inside the boot so you have to add 10 - 20mm to your measurements to find the size. 

Choosing the right size for your long lasting friendship is essential to get the experience. Below presented the different sizes for the different product categories.
