    It's all how you treat them.

    I made my Basic issue boots last almost 3 years because I treated the leather well. Every time we got back from the field, I'd treat the leather with Dr. Jackson's Hide Rejuvenator. It's a fatty, waxy goo I got from Tandy Leather, and it worked wonders. The downside was, for about 3 days after the treatment, the boots wouldn't take a shine. The Hide goo would emulsify the wax. Being pretty boys, they wanted us to have shiny boots. Try explaining to a dumb-**** sergeant what "emulsify" means.

    I tried a pair of Corcorans, but all I got from them was comical Scooby-Doo-feet-move-and-you-don't running sequences. They had no traction. Not worth your time.

    When NOAA went to the USCG ODUs, they told us the "superboot" was the boot of choice. I forget the brand, and they're at home in my closet so I can't verify. But they sucked. The most supremely uncomfortable boots I've ever worn. Good traction, but the durability sucked (the leather and nylon separated on day 3), and **** for long-term wear.

    I just bought a pair of the lightweight Bates with the zipper sides and partial nylon uppers. They are hot sex on my feet. They are comfortable on steel decks and grippy on slick ladders. And I can wear them for 12 hours without aching. Since I just got them, I can't attest to their durability, but they did come with a 12-month warranty. So far, I've been really happy with them.

    I wore Danner Desert Acadias for OIF. After the nightmare boots we were issued, my feet almost wept for joy after lacing those up. They are a little heavier than issue boots, but my feet were never inordinately hot or sweaty. The armor was hot and heavy enough, I guess my mind wasn't on my feet too much.

    I don't condone hazing. In my experience hazing serves no purpose but to degrade morale and camaraderie. I don't want to hijack the thread, so I'll send the rest of my reply to you in a pm.

    Guess it's already been said here, but I must agree - Danners are by far the best boot for LE/Military on the market. I've gone through many a pair of Original SWATs and Magnums and they don't come close to comparing.

    Oh, and word of advice for anyone interested? Stay the **** away from 5.11 Tactical's boots. I got a pair of XPRTs and the goddamn eyelets broke off 'em when I tried lacing them up, right out of the box. They're garbage.

    I've found they're a little heavier than most tactical boots, but they more than make up for it in arch/ankle support and general comfort. Plus, they can stand up to wear and tear way better than most boots.

    I've found that just about any quality hiking or backpacking boot is highly superior to every single "LE/Military" boot.

    I agree. The problem is most of us aren't in units that allow such gratuitous displays of common sense.
