MIL Oakley Desert Boots...

  1. Do you guys have the 6 or the 8inch boot? I'm thinking 8 is the way to go right?

    If you are actually buying them for the desert - Don't..

    They are hot as hell and depending on how long you are there (I was there 6 months and mine didn't last) they may not last the entire time - The sole will separate from the shoe..

    I had 5.11's and with the exception of catching some concertina wire on the heel portion and ripping a hole there, they worked great!

    When did you get them? I got mine in '05 and they started to fall apart too, and they are hot as well. You could see the sweat from my feet coming through the boot. I was even using foot powder.

    I have heard that the newer ones are made better. They have a stitching on the front of the toe for the sole.

    I have been debating on getting a new pair myself.
     
  5. I'm not using them in the desert I will be using them in cadet land. I also heard the new set they have come out with are fine.

    Hey couch, what do you do? I'm a former GACS guy myself. Or Av/GACS, after they changed the AFSC's.
