It was the "HAIX" company, which also manufactured green and black suede boots (a version of the model described above) for the Dutch army. The only difference between these types of boots consist in the material used: smooth black leather was just replaced with suede. The lacing system remained the same, as well as the out-sole - the customers will easily recognize the out-sole of full leather Bundeswehr boots Modell 2005/2007.

Danish Army "Desert" Boots

Since in 1996 the contract manufacturer of Danish Army boots for hot and dry climate is "LeBOCK ApS" company ("Lebock, Ltd."), founded by Ole Bock in Faaborg (Faaborg), where the company's headquarters is situated today.

The Danish "desert" boots, produced by this company are made of suede or smooth leather and breathable "Cordura" nylon fabric. These boots are available in two basic colours:

beige ("LeBOCK DesertZone støvle") and

black ("LeBOCK AirZone støvle").

The DMS-type out-soles (Direct Moulded Soles) are anti-static, shock-absorbing and slip-resistant, being made by "LeBOCK SCS®" (Sole Compensator System) technology, i.e. the out-soles are of composite construction (polyurethane outer shell, the inner part is made of polyurethane foam).

The soft polyurethane outer shell, with all its pros (good insulation, flexibility and light weight), has a significant drawback: if not properly stored, the out-soles of this material could crack and crumble, due to drying up and extinction of the material. These out-soles can also be easily pierced by sharp stones and broken glass, similarly to the plimsolls.
