A Conversation for Army Boots - British
Jezebel Started conversation Jan 7, 2003
I've never been in the army and I'm guessing I never will, but I've nevertheless had a good try of a number of different army boots which can be obtained either second hand or even new. I don't ask too much about how the latter get onto the market. I might add that I have trouble getting boots my size so sometimes I have to take what I can get, leading to some fairly unwise purchases in the past. I've tried German, American and some other nondescript sorts. However, to cut a long story short the best you can get right now, if you need steel toecaps, are British army high-leg boots. Perhaps these are the same ones mentioned in the article. They have the major advantage that the tongue is incorporated into the boot, so no way will they let water in if you lace them up correctly. Furthermore, they do fit well and wear Ok, although like almost all the other army boots you can get the first thing to go is the plastic inserts around the back of the heel, which can be very painful when they poke into your foot.

I don't know about Combat Highs (I managed to avoid having those) but the boots DMS were a bit tight around the top, so we used to cut into the tops, vertical snips about 1cm in length. That made all the difference, and were covered by our puttees.

That was one of the best tips my dad (career soldier) gave me

It will be right that Army combat training offers personnel the skill and the ability to make split second decisions regarding the course and method of their attack.[Unsuitable/Broken URL removed by Moderator]

Army surplus one of their new arrivals is the Canadian flag Velcro back patches, having a colour matched merrow edge and an iron-on backing to discerned look and relief of the application.
