i have my reservations about using army boots though.... cause i find them too "soft"... too flexible at the ball/toes area. also the boots do not have good torsional rigidity.
a good pair of boots will allow you to balance properly on one foot standing on the pointed edge of a rock and you will not feel the pressure on your sole. imagine wearing a softer pair of boots and feeling the edges of the rocks with every step.... that's a few thousand steps a day and it will accelerate foot fatigue.
okay... maybe those are my army boots i am talking about. heard they use gore-tex boots now in the army. maybe those are better!!
remember to share your experience and photos here!!
