Note on these, the Soldier Story quality control on these was terrible, more than half of the examples I went through were badly stained. The DAM ones are very consistent in quality, as are the DID ones. The DAM ones are the best due to the quality control and the DID ones feeling a bit more flimsy.
Thanks for the reference. These boots are hugely popular in the US, as well as amongst Canadian military personnel (although they’re quickly being superseded in popularity by Lowas, my preferred brand). Rarely seen by none North American forces.
