Army Boots - A Long and Lustrous History

The earliest form of army boots can be traced as far back as the Roman Armies. Although they didn't resemble todays boot they were designed for the same reasons. To give the soldier a shoe that was reinforced and was able to supply him with good grip and traction. They had short nails that would protrude out the sides of the boot and iron inserts that gave stability. These early army boots were called Caligae. Hessian soldiers used a type of army boot that would reach their knees. The Hessian boots were used all the way up to WWI. The boot most often used in WWII was known as the Ammunition boot. The leather soles were iron studded. They were made with iron in the heel and toes of the boots. The sides were made of leather. The Vietnam War introduced today's army boot. It was designed to be used in the swampy jungles of Korea. It has not undergone any significant changes over the years. I guess if something works then just stick with it.
