    Cheers for that - as the current boot sole has a hot contact
    melting temperature in excess of 180 °C and the improved boot (entering service) sole goes up to 300 °C, I don't think that there will be too much of a problem.

    If you're patrolling where the temperature of the soil you are walking on is between 180 and 300 °C, you are either:

    a. On the sunny side of the planet Mercury;
    b. Walking on red-hot molten magma.

    Either way, you're shafted and not worrying too much about the soles of your boots melting.

    Moral of the story: don't believe everything you hear in the news about kit!
     
  2. Never seen anyone with molten soles on issue boots in either Iraq or Afghanistan.
     
  3. BB, are you on some sort of commission from Corcoran? you seem to recommend them in every boot thread.
     
  4. Glad you spotted that too fez - I'm rather bored with seeing BB's corcoran boot guide a pair at a time.

    Either admit you work for them and pay advertisers rates, or please stop boring us with pics of American boots very few people will buy in the UK.
     
  5. well, that wont be the first time .............. :(
