USMC Bates Desert Boots
These boots are all ali-babas' enemy!
It doesn't matter what range of heat or terrain if it's hot-HOT and dirty your feet will thank you for these boots!
At 125F on sand or dirt that will cook eggs and with people that are willing to stomp your feet to get away you'll thank Bates for making these boots! Steel toes aren't the 1st choice unless someone recommends them and anyone getting back WILL! Even with the steel toes these are still light and cool!

I got these for $20 at a surplus store, so I can't complain about the price, but if you want some good boots, all of the USMC approved boots are really nice. If you don't need to shine your boots, I would defanatally recomend getting a pair of the Jungle Desert boots. And remember that while those $20 imported boots might be cheap, thats all they are. Save you money and buy a good pair of boots, and your feet will thank you.
