    shit, Marines, I need to know if our boots are immitation suede because the warning on this bottle says not to use it on immitation suede. I sprayed a little on part of the boot and it turned really dark so I freaked out and tried to wash it off.

    dry faster. In the wintertime up here when we hump out to the range and it's snowy the guys with waterproofing on don't get their feet wet, but when you don't have it they get soaked and refreeze. I don't know if it would hold moisture in though

    Why don't you buy desert colored boots with goretex lining?

    Good. We get them as well. Those fuckers aren't fun though in teh summer. Had to wear black ones in the summer during basic. They were like ovens but when it was 10 degrees outside they also kept my feet from getting too fucking cold during the winter. For now normal deserts are pretty comfy.

    Why not? Personally, I think the whole EGA on everything is :greddy: . Mainly because us army folk can't find any deals on ebay anymore. :o

    Safety boots, yes. But not in formation or at the 7 day and such.

    Danners make really nice boots. I go down to MCRD San Diego and buy the used stuff down there. Maybe I'll get a set used by Accord?
