Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Are they any good ?
  2. Dunno...I'm looking at getting a black set for round the office....
  3. Must be good. Featured heavily in the American future warrior programme, IWS. Failing that have you considered Converse Warriors. I know of several people who use them and they say they are the muts nuts.
  4. I wore a pair last year on Telic 8 and to honest wasn't that impressed with them ,they did not stand up to the rigours of patrolling and only lasted 3 months before the sole started to come away from the uppers. I ended up binning them and wearing my issued boots
  5. l wore them pretty much all the time on telic 10, but as above they do take a hammering and l needed a new set after three months.

    The soles are a soft compound that wore out alarmingly quick, and they did come unstuck in a couple of places

    That said, they were extremely comfy, lightweight and were cool to wear (temperature, not trying to sound ally) and so much so when l got back l bought black leather ones - excellent

    dont pay more than £65 for them though

    lve seen them advertised fro up too £125!!
  6. Converse warriors seamed to be the boots of choice, get them out there from the Yank camps for about £70
