Boots for march training info

The following thread is dealing with the Bates 8 Tactical Sport Boots.

Hi guys.

Since I'm joining the armed forces in about half a year, I'm thinking about starting to train for longer walks. I've bought a rucksack and sewn some sandbags for weight.

My question is:
Would you recommend these boots for 50 km. (31 miles) walks with about a 40 kilo (88 pounds) backpack?

- and if so, would you recommend the full leather version or the leather/nylon version?
I like these because they're affordable, and people seem to like them, but I don't know if they will do the job for my requierments.

Thanks in advance.
