    Israeli commando boots.

    I had a pair of Israeli commando boots back in 93. They were made of canvas and were extremely comfortable. My feet never sweat and they wear so light it was like wearing sandals. The top had two straps that were perfect for blousing.

    Alas they wore a hole in the side after 2 years and now I cant find any. The new boots are half heights in canvas but they seem to no longer make the originals. I was specifically looking for a pair in tan at 41 size.

    It would be nice if they had a gore-tex updated boot with some sole protection/arch support. The bates that I have now are to tight on the bridge of my foot and cause my toes to go numb and make my feet sweat terribly.

    Bryan,

    Check out this site. They're in Israel, and they sell all kinds of IDF gear.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    Captain Crunch, that link took me straight back to the late 80's, wearing my scouts, working on a kibbutz up by Lebanon.

    Man I miss Israel.

    Been there they are the only ones that have the half height boots. I'm looking for the full height ones.

    Thumbs up They are GREAT

    I've burned through about 3 pair already since they first started selling them in the U.S.

    I could not tolerate the top straps as (in my opinion) they were a total PITA so I carefully removed mine with a stitch puller and just took them off (no problems) but it took me about 20 minutes total AKA ten minutes a boot to do it.
    They are so fantastically comfortable. Like wearing nothing on your feet. More comfortable than even canvas tennies.

    I'll be buying another pair for this summer.

    I've not seen them for a while but the ARE being sold on Ebay again...at least they were a few weeks ago.
