protective mine boots???

They look like coco the cnut boots...
Bos, sierra leon, most of lower lebonon, half of Africa to name a few places.

So you foot would be OK. the mine would still take your leg off though.

It's about as useful as having ballistic eyewear and then getting it the face with a shotgun. Nice pair of eyes, but where's the rest of his head?

I'm fairly sure you'd have to removed the boots from your anus afterwards.

If I had to stand on a mine, I'd rather be wearing them than not!

What, by the threat "stand on this mine or we will kill you"???


Hmm... says; 'Should be worn in combination with Blast Protective Boot'

Ah, and there she is 8O

I've heard of mine accidents where guys have lost the front of the foot or had the heel blown off their foot, these could well have lessened the damage, ok they look like part of a frankenstein costume but i'd rather look a prat with 2 feet than look cool with a prosthetic! :D
Yes, i suppose it depends on what type of AP mine it is. The Russian ones we encountered in Afghan were quite cheeky and these boots wouldn't have saved your foot (or leg).
Probably quite good aganist 'toe-poppers' and the like, especially the kind of Scatmines (Green Parrot etc) we expected ivan to tip over us by the bucketload.

Wouldn't be any good against any larger mines, or indeed the Bouncing Betties.

Does beg the question though, as to what you would be doing on your feet if you deliberately entered a minefield?

These are the ones the Bomb Doctors had in the back of the Mamba in Afghan a few years back.
Great for playing 'lets run up and down the VOR Park' in!
