Description

Welcome to the Jungle, baby. We've got Wellco made Jungle boots. 
And they're NEW!

It is basically impossible to not get wet in the jungle, so having the right footwear is critical. These classic jungle boots have vent holes and a canvas upper to aid in ventilation and moisture drainage. First tested in Panama and then used in WWII, most notably use during the Vietnam war, where they were in their natural habitat. These versions are post-Vietnam war and strangely made under contract for the Brits! The UK military had a go at making their own jungle boot which became so hated that they officially got some new ones made under US contract. Hence the made in USA label but with UK size markings!

Enough about the history though - these boots still set the gold standard for jungle fighting today in many militaries. 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. The Panama style soles allow mud to flow out the sides to stop your feet from getting sucked down further into mud. There may be a few marks from storage but these are in unissued condition! If you're going outdoors in humid jungle terrain, these are the boots you'll be needing. 

Features:

  • Genuine military issue
  • Canvas and nylon upper
  • Steel shank, spike protective
  • Rubber "Panama" style sole
  • Leather toe, heel and lace area
  • Vent holes just above the sole
  • Made in the USA by Wellco (on contract for UK Army)


Sizing: Normally these US made boots would be in US sizing, however they made these under contract for the UK Army so they have UK size markings. UK shoe sizes are the same as NZ/AU. For more information on sizing, visit our sizing guide and scroll to the shoe section
