If you ever go into the army NEVER admit to being a cadet - you will get bagged out big time.
I got it especially worse cos I was an Air Cadet - as I was planning to join the Air Force, but when I enlisted 'Aircraft Technician' wasn't available at the time so I changed to Army with the same position.

I've only just joined the reserves a month ago, and the boots I was issued with are the same ones you were talking about I believe, with two circular breathing holes on the inside of the shoe, with the heel being able to be heated to mold to your foot a bit better.
Although I haven't worn any other army boots, these ones are quite comfortable, though we'll have to see if I have the same opinion after Kapooka

Easy, British Army - Boots Combat Assault (BCA)
Introduced in the mid 1990s. Light, flexible and very comfortable once they've been broken-in.
They last about 2 years (solid use) before the tread breaks into cracks and starts letting water in.

Bellevilles. Some of the best boots I've worn straight out of the box.
