    Hey Craig, I have been seeing a lot of these lately here, as I see on average 3-5 Canadian Forces members a week. So far I am actually impressed with the make of the boots. They still have a decent amount of soling to offer protection but are significantly lighter than the duty boots they wear when deployed. It makes daily military exercises easier for them and reduces member fatigue. Just my two cents!
