Hmm, looks to me like the companies of the Tan boots are trying to make
look-alikes of the new Marine issued brown boots....even in Combat troops still have to stay within the regulations. and these boots are not authorized. They are clearly knock-offs...fakes.

There are only a few companies that make boots that Marines are allowed to wear. Many Marines get in trouble for wearing "knock-offs". I prefer Bates or Cochoran.

An easy way to tell......the ones authorized to wear have a little Eagle, Globe and Anchor on the side of each boot. In the desert I like to wear the "jungle version" (two vented holes on the inenr side) but anywhere else I like the ICB's (infantry combat boots). ICB's have a GORTEX layer inside that keep your feet dry, but they also make your feet sweet like its crazy......

Now sometimes SF and other units may wear whatever and be on thier own program...but that is the few exceptions.

I don't know about you, but when I am out to sea on my susmarine, I wear tennis shoes or hiking shoes...

Well Deltboy, I suppose bomb proof and they should go 3/4 the way up my thighs.

I'd wear the kind that give me the same superpowers Apocalypse has from the X-Men. Personally, I think those would be some very effective combat boots. Come on, technology, what are you waiting for?!

I would get a pair of Danner's no question abut it! But for urban work I would also consider either these Addias GSG9's or a pair of hitechs

I wear these for working, fighting, hiking, and grocery shopping. They're unstoppable. The last pair I had lasted through almost 5 years of getting thrashed every day. The pair I own now is about a year old, and still feels almost brand new (save being comfortably broken in).

These things are invincible!

Maybe something with a cuban heel??????.......................

Failing that for urban and desert work try the HiTec range. Cheap, comfortable, lightweight and hard wearing.
