Adidas - GSG9.2 Tactical Boots

#1
Where's the cheapest place besides fleabay.

Not for me.

If anyone has any bumf on a similar lightweight high leg boot then let me know.

Do altberg or Lowa do anything similar.

Are the top end magnums sh1te.

Any help, Cheers!

Hows that?

So called gucci but expensive boots

I'm getting them for a mate on behalf of his missus who knows fcuk all on the subject. (like i do)

They're being bought for a copper who is in an "On his feet" role but the likes of Lowas mountain are too heavy and not exactly suited for purpose.

Just after a lightweigt, highleg boot. Preferably waterproof but not essential.

The boots are crap waste of money got a pair and they fell apart and leaked :evil: after 6 months sent them back to who i got them from and Adidas said it was my fault for walking 3 miles a day in them?

If its for plod how about a nice pair of traditional Doc Martins. Thousands of rozzers cant be wrong.
Lets just say he is in a more active role than the DM's range.

Traditional Lowa's and the likes seem to be too heavy Cheapo £39.99 Magnums not robust enough.

I was thinking the top end magnums or some abortion made by Altberg/Lowa that are sh1t for soldiering but ideal for base ratting.

Altberg/Lowa too expensive for what I think you are after. Top of the range magnums (I think they are called the ELITE series) will probably do the job but shop around for a good price.

Cheers. I'm not really a kit monster as I tend to think only the queen has the best kit in her stores :D

However I do own a pair of Lowa's.

So hunting for this kind of stuff has been an eye opener to whats actually out there. Lots of brandnames. Not very much feedback on them!

Roger that.

Your advice has been taken as the time has drawn closer.

Just spoke to a bloke in stores who says Magnum elites tend to hold together and not blow up at the 1st sign of running.

You are better off with the original Adidas GSG9 boot

A few have said that.

Is this because they are "Like slippers" or do they last longer?

Edit to add:

You sig block reminds me of things I feel like when hit anywhere. Even by a 7 stone chavs bird called "Jaimie-Lee" in the shin.

I only use the Adidas boots to walk around camp or if i am tabbing or running on roads as the training area rips the sole apart. For tabbing on the area i use Altberg boots with the hard sole.

One of the other Para PTIs here bought the the mk2 adidas boot and too be honest they look hideous and we ripped him so much that he sent them back.

Nice one for the hint. I was thinking a set of DMS and Black puttees!

As for the chav bird. Close - She inhabits a cave somewhere near Darlington and I still have some of her cheap shoe in my shin I think.

My cousin's in a specialist plod unit, all sneaky beaky stuff and that. Last time I saw him he was wearing Oakley SI assault boots, very light but not very waterproof.
He said they were the dogs b*llocks but then he is only a plod.

Bates falcon boots are more or less the old gsg 9 boots for about £60, had mine for nearly 3 years now, still good, like slippers once worn in.

Magnum Phantom 8" V-lights if you can find them. The PX has them for around US$70.
Apparently designed for 'Para Military/police/SWAT' type activities.
No metal parts, very very light. Robust, waterproof, very comfortable etc etc. If you can find the ones without a zip, then even better.
