The very best boots I have ever used (I even spent $800 on a pair), and even wear today
while working in the woods, are surplus Army boots. Can anyone even imagine the research
that has gone into footwear for the infantry? Of value post pole shift would be the "jungle
boots" issued in Viet Nam, although they are not nearly as heavy and sturdy as normal infantry
boots, so you would need to stockpile more of them. Actually, I'm rather torn as to whether to
recommend them or not, as they provide only a fraction of the support of the normal boot, and
wouldn't be of any additional value if the rain were continuous.
