They used to be dark green. If you look at the uppers, you can see the tongues. You see that dark green? Yep.
They get a lot of use. From wear-and-tear, crossing canals of sewer water, dirt, rocks and the elements, they have a slightly different color and texture now. They are still super comfortable, but they are starting to smell (probably from the sewer water and extended periods of intense boot wear). Body odor is not the most flattering of scents, so I go through a lot of foot powder (hint, if you're looking for something to send me in a care package, I can always use the blue bottle of Gold Bond foot powder).
There was a guy in training that had the same pair of boots. The seam on the outside of the boots started to rip in the same place, so he contacted Belleville and explained it and they are going to send us new pairs! I call that taking care of the troops, so Belleville just went up in status in my book! Thanks again for contacting them Micah!
They really are super comfortable boots. I don't which ones I like more; the Kiowas or the Converse moon boots. It's still a toss-up.
Anyways, since I haven't had a mission for a couple days I figured I'd share a little bit of my life to you. Also, I'm still working on getting a photo of myself. This is a start in that direction.
