The boot saga continues…

Posted: May 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

So now that pretty much everyone in my company who can has stopped wearing the combat hiker, other random boots are popping up all over the place. Our company supply sgt actually acquired a whole bunch of these boots. These are the ASOLO Moran GTX. They’re Italian and cost $250 a pair.  THANKFULLY these boots are lightweight, comfortable, have a speed-lace (!!!) system, are breathable, and look super sexy awesome. Most of the time I still wear my old school Wellco Panama Sole hot weather boots that I have had since OBC, but the soles on them are taking a beating from all the rocks here.

So hopefully these new boots will pass the test. The guys we replaced were wearing these and had some good things to say about them. With any luck they will serve us just as well.

    Even in a “hi-tech” world the soldier/marine still needs a good boot. Walking ain’t changed in all these years – but the load jus keeps gettin’ heavier.
