ARMY BOOTS OF THE WORLD. REVIEWS
The out-sole and the tread pattern became a little different: the early boots feature more solid and dense out-soles with groove on the heel. The tread pattern itself was more simpler - as it can be seen on the following photo:
Later model boots were made of more soft material, without groove on the heel, while the tread pattern became more complicated:
The marking of the out-soles usually indicates the size in the "Mondopoint" system, the military ID code and the width of the boots - S, M or B. According to the Dutch army classification these letters respectively denote the width (completeness):
- S = Smal (narrow);
- M = Middel (middle);
- B = Breed (wide).
The lacing system, depending on the manufacturer and year of production could be different:
- with full speed-lacing system of 8 pairs of round eyelets;
- with lower two pairs of simple round eyelets and upper six pairs of speed- lacing eyelets;
- with lower four pairs of round eyelets and upper three pairs of speed-lacing eyelets.
The flap of the boot's tongue is "closed", i.e. Stitched to the top of the boot.
These boots have been widely used by military personnel of the Netherlands during the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
