ARMY BOOTS OF THE WORLD. REVIEWS
Among the manufacturers of Greek military boots, which were in use during the years 1960-1970s, one should mention "FLOREX" "ΦΛΟΡΕΞ". These "Goodyear welt construction" - type black grain leather boots feature stitched, glued and tucked solid vulcanized rubber out-sole with shallow grid-like tread pattern. The lacing system consists of eleven pairs of simple round eyelets, the boot's tongue is stitched to the mid of lacing. The stamp with model number and ID information is marked on the upper part of the boot's top.
The marking on the sole is: "ΦΛΟΡΕΞ ΕΛ&923#;ΗΝΙΚΟΣ ΣΤΡΑΤΟΣ", i.e. the name of the manufacturer and "Armed Forces (of Greece)", written inside the circle. The inscription on the heel shows: "ΦΛΟΡΕΞ" in the round circle and "ΕΛ&923#;.ΣΤΡΑΤΟΣ No 3 12/13" (the model number (No 3, 12/13)).
Like most recent military boots of Greece, these boots are actually the copies of contemporary American army boots. They Greek boots seem more rough, especially the heels joint to the outsole. The Greek ones have the same number of lacing eyelets, the construction is almost the same.
