View Full Version : Tactical footware
June 2, 1999, 06:40 PM
Like to know what type are desirable and where to get them. Price is a consideration.
The shoes or boots would have to be comfortable for day long wear involving constant moving around, hopefully have good ankle support and provide protection around toe hungry 50lb boxes.
I know some such footware sport synthetic as opposed to metal inserts.

There was a thread not too long ago discussing the term tactical. Look it up and you will probably get a laugh :). I don't know if I am missing something, do you mean sturdy hiking boots for general purpose use?

I think the thread was called "SICK OF TACTICAL"
But don't quote me...

Jffal: Erick's recommendation on the Adidas GSG9 model is a good one, if you want to spend big bucks. They're an issue item for certain SOF units here and abroad. OTOH, GI jungle boots (new black ones w/padded nylon upper) fitted with a GOOD quality sole insert are very servicable and extremely affordable. I've jumped and rucked with them and they do just fine.
Good luck on your choice...
