Hello Ladies and Gents,
My name is Vincent and I am new here on the forum. I hail from Bombay, India, but I have lived in Dubai for 21 years. I would like you expert opinions on the following boots
I am looking for my next pair of desert boots as I have worn my converse boots out and need to replace them. The converse boots were great but over the years I felt the lack of insulation and water proofing. Yes it does get pretty cold in the desert and can also get wet. I have narrowed it down to these two and I cannot make up my mind. On paper they look pretty similar other than the height and the price. Please let me know what you think and if any one on here has had previous experience with these, your input will be invaluable to me.
As for application, I do a lot of hiking in the desert and the wadi's around here. Sometimes is a two day hump through the mountains and pools to the camp site with a full load. I usually never take my boots off right until its time to hit the sack. With the converse sometimes, I never even did that just slept with them and swapped the socks the next day.
So obviously comfort is a major factor, they have to be though as well, as some of the rocks here are razor sharp, I have learned that the hard way and over all built quality is what I am looking for.
I hope this is the right place to ask this question and I hope I will not offend anyone on here me being a civilian wannabe etc. Looking forward to hearing from the experts.
