    I know exactly what he is talking about. Its strictly an appearance issue. One pair for work, one "CLEAN" pair for the chow hall. Its not a sanitary issue.

    I wish they would make a pair of jungle boots for the ABU. Anyone seen something like that.

    Have you tried the Corcoran Marauders? I used to wear the jungle boots, but when I got these, wow, I really like them better. They are more comfortable (for me) and they are cooler than the jungle boots.

    They are spendy, but in my opinion they are worth it.

    This whole uniform change saga is getting OLD!! What an incredible waste of money and manpower. It is obvious the powers that be, who are more than likely sitting @ a big table, IN THEIR FLIGHTSUITS, will never get it right. Until the "deciders" get out in the trenches and actually have to wear an ABU for it's intended purpose, they will never understand what we need. All they will do is whatever best suits them while they are flying a desk in a $200 pair of Air Force issued fire retardant pajamas....

    Thread from 2009 revived by a banned new guy? Hmmmm....

    With that said, when I retired I was wearing Corcoran Marauders, great boots. Those green things ya'll wear now make me want to throw up, actually they look like someone threw up on them, THEY SUCK!!!
