I agree the new issue pro boot is as good as any one you pay loads of your hard earned penny's forarmies said:Not meaning to sound like a boring t**t, but even when I was doing inf training at Catterick in 2000, we had to use issued boots and kit.
The issued bouncing bomb( sleeping bag) was a pain in the arse to pack away, when dark, wet and cold, but gets you good at admin. Even the instructors used issued kit..to lead by example.
As for boots, in the UK doing recruit training, the boots are fine. Wait til you get to an inf battalion, when you do much longer exercises.
Save your dosh til you get to a battalion.
