I’m looking for a good pair of combat boots. What should I be looking for?
I do the “happy feet” test on most shoes and boots I buy (“Are my feet happy in these? Why or Why Not?”), but my experience with combat boots has been that they ALWAYS fail that test. And yet hundreds of thousands of people wear them day-in and day-out, and a lot of those people can run, jump, wade, swim, and even sleep in them.
I assume, therefore, that the problem I have had in the past is twofold:
1) cheap, knock-off boots
2) Improper “breaking-in” of said boots.
So… counsel, anyone?
