I use a combination of my Danner's or Mark III CF issue. Either one is pretty good, I try to stay away from the new CF issue gortex because they are heavy and my feet sweet too much. Well if it's warm out anyhow. Proper socks help a lot in that department. Wearing my Danner's feels like I'm wearing running shoes compared to the Mark III's though.

My boots have a Gore-tex layer in them, they don't feel all that how though. Mind you I never had the chance to try the CF gore-tex boots.

Danner would be great, best boots available but I definitely do not have the money.

The boots i wear are ok, however the ankle support isnt huge. I have a extremely week right ankle due to rolling it porbably 20 times a year. Looking into getting a good set of magnums, or something with built in ankle guards.

I have the exact same problem.

Look into these:



They're called "Active Ankles" They make my $20 Jungle boots into the best thing I've ever worn.

I use and have been using black Viper for two seasons now. They are the best darn boots i have ever worn. I got them from a buddy in law enforcement. Even after a long day in the bush my feet feel great. Lots of ankle support built into them too.

I used to play and work with Magnum boots. They hurted my feets more than my old 1970 CF issue boots.

So I got some HAIX.


By far the more confortable and stealty boot I ever had. It was my everyday wear for 1 year because it was more confortable than my running shoes.

Used my issued desert boots twice, but no ankle support, thats how I ended up on the side lines for almost two months this year. Now I just wear my MKIII CF boots. Have a pair of Danner Ft. Lewis, but can't wear them, the toes are too narrow for my feet and cause my toes to cramp up, thats why I'm selling them. Anyone know where I can get a good set of Danners in a EE width?

Same. Just finding a set of GOOD yet under $20 insoles is a pain in the ass, even those I buy to put in my sneakers. I tend to swap around the half dozen pairs of insoles I've bought the past two years, but still find most of them to be useless in the long run, am fed up with wasting money on these things.

Thumbs up G'day,

On the topic of boots, I just ordered some Danner Fort Lewis boots from this site and with the sale code COLUMBUS the total came to $210 with shipping to Winnipeg included. http://www.shoebuy.com/danner-fort-l...00-gram/184002

Not sure what the border will add to the cost but still ~$50 cheaper than anywhere else I could find local or online.

Another Original SWAT user here, 9" side zip for the last 2 years. Best shoes I've ever owned. I just retired it for the 9" water-proof model, which is a little less comfy compared to the side zip, but fall's here and winter's a-coming.
