I left in '93 and joined the Plod. I used my faithful Combat Highs and they gave me 5 good years until they became racing slicks. (I fined meself 3 points and Â£60 for no tread!) I used other (Shamefully civilian) boots until a friend then gave me a pair of the (Then) new type combat boots. The dratted things have worn out now - only 4 years of use, no durability... Which leads me to my question. Am I correct in thinking that there are now two types of boot available to Joe Squad? And if so, please discuss. Also, suggestions for outlets other than Silvermans please.
