  1. Hi all,

    Does anyone know what time of boot, Harry (HRH) was wearing out there.
    In pictures they looked like Meindls but they had a zip up the inside.

    Or let me know where I can buy them from, size 10 medium if anyone has and wants to convert to tokens.


    Many thanks

    linky thingie

    IIRC mine were $80 from thye PX at Victory, not waterproof, but nothing that a gortex sock couldn't sort out, very comfy too.
     
  4. You can't beat Alberg or LOWA elite, it's worth paying the extra money for them to last.
     
  5. You are almost undoubtedly correct.

    But as I left the mob a good few years ago I will only be wearing them to mince about in at work. I run a flooring company and desert boots with their soft suede uppers and wide tread soles are the perfect floor fitting boot !

    The zips would add that little bit extra in that they would be much easier to get off and on in customers houses !
