Best Jungle Boots 2016

Jungle Boots are generally designed to offer the ability to handle various jungle environments that we come across rough and tough terrains, muddy / slippery surfaces, wet, hot and humid conditions.

They need to offer 5 key features which are Traction, Stability, Comfort, Durability and Water Resistance.

Here is a list of the Best Jungle Boots 2016

While initially combat, boots were used for the Jungle warfare. However, from what I have experienced during the various jungle trekking that I had undertaken, for jungle trekking you need specific jungle boots as it requires proper ventilation and also drain out the water when crossing water logged areas otherwise walking will become difficult and foot related diseases can occur in the absence of proper ventilation and water draining out.

Since Combat Boots design basically evolved or adopted from the Jungle Boots, I have considered both these categories and presented below. However, it may be noted that I have left out those Combat Boots which are purely for Desert Terrains. So, before coming to conclusion as to which are the best Jungle Boots of 2016, the Boots must be used in all the conditions as stated above and should pass these vital tests for them to be qualified in this category.
