    In my opinion I think so I just want to make sure because they are at a really good price and I've been in a need of new boots for a while now I just didn't feel like spending like 150 on a pair. So just making sure the Army shall let me wear these.

    I have the same sort of boots, but to be honest boots that are supposed to be more comfortable actually tend to be worse for my feet as odd as that sounds.

    Authorized, but they probably won't last for more than 3 months.

    Chuck the money on cheap pair of Bellevilles.

    I've posted a time or two in the past about boots. I've gone through more than I care to count.

    ~$30 for boots is a bit sketchy. Every person has a different opinion about boots though, and you may love them. Price isn't everything and these could be amazing, or a nightmare.

    I had a friend find a pair of issue Altamas for $35 from a surplus store, and he LOVED them. Wore them for about 9 months. However, with that said, I suggested he try a pair of the 390's and as soon as he tried on a pair of Bellevilles, cost meant nothing and he immediately went out and bought a set. He dropped his old boots he wore like they were a bad habit.

    I'm honestly not a fan of the "sneaker" boots, myself. I have a pair of Rockys that I wore for 3 weeks and now they collect dust. I've tried blackhawks, and they aren't my thing either. Price aside, my favorite boots to date are the Belleville 390's and the OTB Desert Lites. They are both very high quality and comfort. Sometimes you get lucky with a cheap pair, and other times, you get what you pay for.

    If you wanna take the risk, go for it, it's your money. You may strike gold.

    The Belleville 390's feel like you are walking in hot concrete. They are heavy and do not breath very well. I don't like them. I have to wear the 340 DES due to flight gear requirements, and hate them.

    i've bought a pair of those 30dollar boots before and they didnt come with insoles which was ok bc i already had some super cushion ones. they are jungle boots so they were still comfy. all i used them for was everyday boots walking around and being in the office. didnt deploy in them or do any field work so i cant comment on that. for 30bux they fit the bill nothing to complain about from me.
