These Bundeswehr (German Army) desert boots are exactly what you would expect quality wise - however for a 'desert' boot they have a few surprises. The designers must of had Afghanistan in mind when designing these as they have a lightweight waterproof Gore-Tex® lining. Environments like Afghanistan have a huge amount of variation in climate from scorching desert to freezing snow. These boots cover them all.
Every military boot needs a good sole. These boots have good deep treads on them for cross country performance and are non-slip/puncture resistant, performing equally well on more urban surfaces. The outer layer consists of a suede leather lining and Gore-Tex® patches to let your feet breathe. On the inside the boots have a thin, flexible Gore-Tex® lining to protect from water/cold, yet not too thick so you can still keep cool when it is hot climates. The insoles are moisture wicking so you can dry them out easily, something everyone needs when sweating away in the heat. If you are after a tough, lightweight boot that can handle summer and winter, then these boots might just be for you!
