    Anyone have experience with the Blackhawk Tanto Hiker? The Trainer version not the boot?

    Hi

    I'm currently in training in the Belgian army where I wear the issued Haix Tibet (aka "heavies" http://www.haix.com/en/products/military/haix-tibet ) in cold or muddy/very wet conditions. They are great for not letting in any water at all but they are rather cumbersome to walk/run with so I'm looking for a lighter boot to wear for marching long distances or for tactical exercises in relatively dry conditions because the oldskool plain leather boots give me blisters and smashed up toes after a couple of miles.

    I heard good things about Crispi. Does any of you have any experience with any of the following boots? I would like to know how waterproof they are and if they aren't too hot.

    These seem to be very good also: http://www.asmc.de/en/Clothing/Footw...-GSG-92-p.html

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you been issued a pair of "heavies" and a pair of classic leather boots?

    Have you considered buying the "light" boots ( HAIX airpower P6 ) ? They are available from your local millshop and will costs you €80 if I remember correctly.

    Having said that I know some guys who own Crispi's and they seem to be solid boots.

    I've been issued the heavies and the lights. I've used the heavies and they are perfectly waterproof and excellent boots for relatively static conditions but cumbersome for running or walking long distances. The lights are not waterproof at all and I dislike them in general, that's why I still use older leather boots when I want to be lighter and quicker on my feet.

    Imho, Crispi Tiger boots are the best choice for your need. They are the lightest between the three (0,7 kg vs 0,8 kg) and they received several positive reviews. The sole has an exceptional grip in muddy/wet surfaces, while the other two boots are more fit for urban use (especially the Swat Pro). They're all waterproof (goretex lining) and made for autumn/winter... Anyway I don't think they are hotter than your Haix Tibet.

    Usually Crispi boots are very comfortable from the beginning, never had a problem with mine after long walk.

    My parents got me a pair of Belleville 700's for my birthday. I love these.

    Just purchased some Altama Jungle boots on clearance for pretty cheap. I'll be using them in the Florida Everglades. We'll see how they hold up.

    Does anyone have experience with insoles? Are they worth it or is it money out the window?

    It's a great add-on especially for a military leather boot during winter times. Haix, Lowa, Magnum, AKU make good stuff.

    Superfeet make great insoles for arch and heel support, and I have a pair from Oregon Aero that are absolutely awesome for shock absorption.
