I had a pair if "jungle boots" that I got from an army surplus store and used them for airsoft, then I took it on a 75 mile canoeing camping trip and by the end of it the lace grommets were falling off and I had the bottoms duct taped on; all from portaging (carrying the canoes and packs across trails to avoid rapids and rocks and the like). Now I just use an old pair of hiking boots I've had for a while. Not sure what they're called but they are more work boots without steel toes than hiking boots.
US Army black jungle boots. Best pair of boots I ever bought! Keep my feet dry and comfortable.
Worked for me through many rivers, mountain hikes and walking around town. I wear them as my everyday footwear
I totally agree with you that if you look after your boots, they will take care of you. My jungles have lasted me for years!
I like wearing trail running shoes. I feel a bit more nimble, and it helps me walk more quietly. I've done many 10+ mile hikes in them, and they've never been a problem. The only downside is that they're red, and shrug off a layer of spray pain like nothing. They're made by Adidas.
I use Solomon hiking boots. Brilliant support and waterproof + they match your loadouts well and you can use them for hiking etc. Decent price too. Only complaint would be that they are a little heavy, but that's very minor. Size ten (UK)
