yeh thats the boot i can get now. the forester. apparently its an upgrade of the old boot that they have always had, with vibram sole etc. i dont find anything wrong with standard boots i was just offered them for a decent price so was considering it. that website you gave harry, i notice is selling danners at the lower price range, maybe i will get myself some acadias now!!
Not sure on the current SP for Dannas, the gore tex lined variety were named the "foot ovens" great for standing around in but not really suitable for tabbing or warmer UK weather. Id go for the Lundhag, of the 2, but there are loads of other threads here that will tell you about the many "Go faster " boots.
If your serving just remember if your on ops and they break you will get a pair of issued boots!
