Anyone know of a website that sells the Addias brand tactical/combat boots? I've tried US Calvary,& Galls- no luck.

Thanks in advance!

Heard lots of great things about the Adidas, but also be prepared for:

* Rapid wear
* Soles that squeak on wet surfaces

This was in a thread a couple of weeks ago, I believe. Visited one of the Army/Navy type outlets near my home, I believe the next pair I purchase will be from Danner.

I've been wearing a set of Road Gear boots
which are absolutly the most comfortable I've
ever worn. They reportably do not break
down like the high-techs, ect. They also have
a new sole pattern that holds up well for
big guys. The price is not bad either. $50-60
Sorry I can't put you onto a distrbutor today
because I bought these on the side of the
road traveling from colorodo to texas. But
I have the guys card and he does deals for LE
and military(ig)email me if you want the info
I have his card at home.
