not Boots Creepy.
And get extra soles added (called "double-tapping" in my day) lessens cracking and gives a little protection from all the stamping around. Plus studs and horseshoe on the heels. Makes Boots Crunchy and Slippy!!

Or, if you were a certain short-arrse WG DSgt of blessed memory, you had them tripled - and then flatly denied it :D

At Pirbright 1989, I got issued a pair of Boots Crunchy size 7 one manufactured in 1913 the other in 1917 originally double tapped then triple tapped, 13 studs ("for the 13 VC's The Coldstreamers had won" my Coldstream Drill instructor would say) and heelplates. Bees waxed to death never cracked or had any creases, looked like black glass. I used to take them out of the locker flick a duster over them and get "best boots" every time. Earned a fortune lending them to people on "shows" and eventually had a queue of people waiting to buy them off me when I came to hand my kit in. Sold them for £60 + exchange pair.

Sigh! (gazes fondly into distance)
