    some questions:
    - where are you going to use the boots? East, West , ...? I ask because in the east they use a lot of salt during the winter and leather boots don't last long even if you wax them, and the weather in the east is quite different than the one in the west (colder and more snowy) .
    - for what usage, daily, working boots (steel toes, oil related or not), hicking, .... ?

    I have couple of questions here:

    1. Can Salomon Quest 4D GTX boots be used as combat boots?
    2. Can Salomon Quest 4D GTX boots be used as hunting boots?

    Today I tried them in local dealers shop and they look like Chinese made toys for me. Before this I used classic army leather boots for above mentioned purposes. Sorry if my questions sound naive.

    If answers to my questions are negative please advise what brands, models I should look for. Thanks in advance.

    Today I was lucky to get two pairs of German boots :

    - unissued, original (from 1939) text book Knobelbecher / Marschstiefel;
    - LOWA Zephyr GTX Mid.

    Will test LOWA tomorrow.

    I use Belleville 390s and 790s. My favorite boot by far and I always have them when I deploy.

    Then again my boot size is 12N which can be hard to find, but Belleville keeps them stocked.
