Although a jungle boot has become more of a fashion statement or a choice of many men and women who do not necessarily require its functions, a combat boot is still very intricately designed and its history travels back many years. Designed particularly for jungle warfare in areas that are wet, hot and humid (basically tropical areas) a jungle boot’s purpose is to substitute for the normal leather boot in areas where it would be almost impossible to wear them due to natural conditions. Not only are army jungle boots water resistant, heavier and much more comfortable to wear in tropical regions, army jungle boots have outlets in the instep and usually a canvas upper which helps in draining the moisture and ventilation.

3. Original S.W.A.T. Metro Air 9-Inch Side-Zip Tactical Boot
Rating: 4.2 / 5.0
Main features: The metro air 9 inch side zip tactical boot is slightly different than the other S.W.A.T. boots especially because of its side zip design. Although the zip is made of metal wearing these boots one can easily pass through metal detectors causing no extra nuisance. The shoes have a very strong and good grip and take the shape of the feet once worn. In addition to its stylish black color the boots have a slip resistant outer sole which makes it ideal for military and normal day to day use.
My experience: for me personally what makes this pair of boots better than other similar boots by S.W.A.T. is the side zip design. Extremely easy to wear and to walk around in, the boots provide immense comfort and are very durable bound to last a long time.
4. Rothco 8'' GI Type Jungle Boot
Rating: 3.3 / 5.0
Main features: Rothco is a company famous worldwide for its military equipment and supplies. This wholesale distributor produces a large variety of equipment and provides everything that is a part of the military apparel. One thing that you can be sure of with Rothco is the quality and durability of the boots. The boot is made of a strong synthetic leather with a canvas and nylon upper making it completely waterproof. The black leather panama’ sole and its tight grip lets the wearer walk around very easily and traverse all kinds of land whether you’re hiking or you’re in a warzone. In addition to being available at stores, the boots are available online on amazon as well.
My experience: the boots seemingly look not comfortable at all, especially because of the weight of the boots once you hold it in your hands. In actuality however, the boots completely gel onto the feet and you actually feel like the sole is a part of your foot. Despite the comfort, I personally felt like this was the kind of pair that one can’t wear for a long time without feeling some kind of strain on the calves because of the sole.
