Military Boots of Greece

The Greek army boots ("Áρβυλα ελληνικού στρατού" - "Arbula ellinikos stratos") are used as a field footwear in all branches of the Armed Forces of Greece.

For many years they were unchanged in their design, and only recently, just 5 years ago, new versions of Greek army boots began to appear. This was due to the requirements of time and active participation of the Greek military in the UN and NATO peacekeeping and stabilization operations of the recent years.

The great bulk of military boots (about 85%), supplied to the Greek Army, Air Force, Navy and the Coast Guard, are manufactured by "PYRGOS" ("Pyrgos boots - Army Boots and boots Factory"). This Greek company also provides at least 3/4 of all its sales of military footwear to the civil specialty stores. This company was the first major domestic industrial corporation, which began supplying boots to the Armed Forces massively throughout the whole country.
