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.

Hi Jeff,

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...

Trust me, they're worth it.
