Jungle boots are a type of combat boot that was designed for jungle environments or hot, wet and humid conditions. They have vent holes and a canvas upper to aid in ventilation and moisture drainage. First tested in Panama and then used in WWII, but most notably, during the Vietnam war where they were in their natural habitat.
Enough of the history though, these are styled off the original US Military boots. The quality canvas and nylon upper is breathable yet strong. There is also a metal shank inside the sole. No this is not a James Bond style hidden knife, it's actually for protection from bamboo stake traps or other things that could penetrate the sole. If you're going outdoors, these are the boots you'll be needing.
*Note* These are not the original GI Jungle boots. We do not rate these for military use.

Excellent boot. Comfortable. Gives good traction. Panama sole does great negotiating muddy terrain. Great boot for playing gelsoft skirmushes and milsim.
Great if you are doing a lot of river crossings. Vents pump water out and rubber soles have extremely good traction on rocks. Because they are not lined I buy a size up and fit 2 inner soles and 2 pairs of socks.
Bought a pair on the fly for use at work, wore them for just over a week and one boot has already made its way to the shoebox in the sky. The upper has started to seperate from the sole and the leather has worn thin in some places
The boots are sturdy and strong, without taking away from the comfort. Well worth the money! I recommend these boots.
These are great boots, good leather, sturdy sole, not heavy on the feet. Can't wait to go bush with them.
