    Standard issue hot weather boots. They dry fast if you get em wet and keep your feet dry. I have had 2 pair that I switch back and forth on that have lasted me 4+ years.

    Standard issue is good I've got a few pair I've had 6 years. Lots of miles on them. If I was going to treat myself to something nice with my lottery earnins id get danners like Tommy suggested.

    I also have 2 pair of Danner Combat Hikers I am using for non uniform boots, but I am thinking long temr they will wear out faster. They also don't provide the ankle support I require being cut so low.

    So I'll be looking into
    Danger RAT
    Danner combat hikers Oakley (land, air and sea)
    Standard issue (what brand would this be, Bates? Just read that Bates are being phased out since they fell apart in Afghanistan)


    So what are some of the qualities you guys like about here boots?

    Been wearing Danners 15+ years.. you cannot go wrong with a good pair of Danner boots!
    They have a number of styles, check out their site or better yet find a place that carries them and go in to try a pair on.

    I really tried to love Oakley's assault boot, have had a few pairs over the years but they simply don't hold together well, soles come apart etc. and that's after light/moderate use.

    Ordered a pair of Magnum spiders in multicam back in Nov, got them in Dec but their size 9 was too big for me, sent em back to USCAV but since I had worn them in my yard testing them out, they wouldn't replace them with some 8-1/2's. To Magnum's merit, their West Coast rep has agreed to swap them for me, sadly I'm STILL waiting to get them back from USCAV almost 3 weeks after their email stating they wouldn't accept them due to wear.
    Whew!
    So yea, once I get the right sized pair and take em for a spin, I might be a Magnum fan, the spider gives good covrage/support it looks like and without the heavy weight normally associated with a traditional combat boot

    Bates = shit.

    I wore Danner Hot Weather and RAT boots during my service. They last and are pretty comfortable
