Bates Falcon Boots

#1
Looking for a new pair of lightweight boots, and spotted these puppies for sale in Soldier Magazine this month. Has anyone tried a pair, and would you recommend them at all? I've tried Magnums, and cheaper copies but they're too wide in the heel for me, and my foot slips round, causing nasty blisters....

Just looking at the link put me off - I personally think it looks a bit to much like a Magnum and is attempting to look hi-tech when there is no need. Also, the sole looks pretty poor.

If you want lightweight boots, most of the quality, established bootmakers (Altberg, Lowe etc) manufacture them now - you may pay a bit more but it'll work out better in the long run.

Looks a bit like the Addidas GSG9 boot.
