Wanted: 80s Style desert boots

Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Speedy, Jun 12, 2009.

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. I've been looking around the net, but all I can find are pretty crap 'casual' type shoes that various manufacturers have labelled desert boots (they look like shoes!). Can any find or recommend a decent pair of traditional looking desert boots for casual wear (NOT combat types) like wot-we-used-to-ave?
  2. Fill yer boots mate 8)

    oddly enough I found a shoe shop in Wimbledon (of all places) that does them - think they have a website - weill dig it out.
  5. Once they are covered in beer and pish,they're socially accepted in the Traf :D
  6. The proper ones were these:

    but they only have them in a size nine.

    I've worn them for years and have always bought from Silvermans but don't know where to get them from otherwise.

    They also do these:


    although they're not quite the real deal.
  7. BATA used to do a nice line in Aden for about 10/-!
    Clarkes still make a reasonably good imitation of the original though they're selling them over here for $135.!!
  8. That is exactly what I was after, many thanks :)
  9. Scroll down for the Ghillie tie boots
