ARMY BOOTS OF THE WORLD. REVIEWS

Danish Military Boots (Militærstøvler): "Special Forcee" and "JOLLY® Explorer GORE-TEX®"

In the last decade the Armed Forces of Denmark are gradually shifting from "classic" M/58 military boots (traditional army boots model that dates back to the mid-1950-s) to the new kinds of military footwear. The most massively used boots of the Danish army are currently "Special Force"- labelled.

The German Bundeswehr boots of Models "2000" and "2005/2007", having the new recognizable NATO-type tread pattern are well-known in the world. The out-sole tread patterns of the new Danish army boots is almost identical to the boots out-soles of other NATO armies, from Romania to Belgium, which apply the same out-sole design.

The Danes did not experiment with multilayer arrangement of their out-soles, and preferred the monolithic out-soles, so they did not face with any problems the out-soles de-lamination, typical for Bundeswehr boots Modell 2000 model (this defect was eliminated only in the new improved models 2005/2007).

This model of the Danish boot is very similar to Bundeswehr boots, it has similar design, focused on the minimum number of seams, and therefore more waterproof. The damper element on the upper back side of the boots provides flexibility of foot bending. This is needed, because, in general, these boots are quite sturdy and they provide good fixation of the feet. The boot's tongue is stitched almost to the top of the boots - i.e. The flap of the boot's tongue is semi-closed. The tongue shows the marking of the manufacturer, the serial number, the year of manufacture and compliance with European footwear safety standards.

The boot's speed lacing system is made of bronze and consists of three pairs of eyelets at the lower part, a pair of lacing hook-clamps above, and three pairs of speed-lacing eyelets at the top. There is also a couple of simple round eyelets on the very top of the boots - this typically Danish element of design is intended for ease of tying the laces.

Unlike the similar Bundeswehr models, the Danish boots feature microfibre textile as the insulation, not "glove"-type leather. Also the Danish boots feature more wide pleated "collar" padding on the top of the boots, with soft black leather inside it. Under the "collar" padding there is perforated ventilation to remove excessive heat and moisture from inside the boots.
