    Let me talk about my particular boots. My first pair were only sold within the USSR.

    It had three colors. Green and white for Spetsnaz (elite military), and orange for

    civilians. A boot built to survive rigors of industry and war. The orange is usually

    seen in Europe today as a motorcycle boot, Armored heel, sidewalls, and toe

    (mine deflected a .22 bullet 10 years ago). No metal content. Prevents any

    impalement up through the enormous lug grip soles. Resistance to chemicals.

    Winter insulated. Won't melt until after a minute of 300 degree of flame

    (such as a tactical WMD thermal pulse). Now retailed out of Italy. One USA

    order source now out of New York State. My second pair are matte black.

    I use them in cave exploration, motorcycling, Salish Sea boating. I own

    no shoes. My other boots were made for forestry use and motorcycling

    by Red Wing. I have one pair of moto competition old school armored

    boots made by MSR in the D30 Model. Decorated with silver foreign coins

    at the sidewall buckles. Shoes look stupid if wearing body armor and

    black leather head to toe.

    They don't ruin your socks and feet with mud nor water. Plus your feet won't sink in a liquefied environment

    Boots are Catholic and shoes are Protestant, therefore boots are superior.

    Support for the ankle. Protection from cuts and other injuries. Warmth.

    Boots can have steel toes and they’re more likely to be waterproof.
