The Scenario: You're about to deploy to Afghanistan and are expecting a highly kinetic tour against an effective and fluid enemy. The British Army has made so many cutbacks that the new issue boot is made from recycled toilet paper and instantly causes blisters on your feet and so you have absolutely no choice but to buy your own pair of boots. You will be out the gate for most of your tour and can expect little downtime. It's going to be a summer tour and so you need a pair of comfortable but robust and supportive boots that you know you can rely on. They're going to have to last you the entire tour. There's no second option, no fall-back. What you buy is what you wear for the next six months. Before you can be authorised to buy and wear your boots you must justify why you've picked that brand or precise model. So which boot manufacturer and why? Please Vote on the Poll!
