    Completely different needs from a boot used in the NS. They have always had different boots to the rest of the DF.
    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    Your arguements are invalid.

    What about Aircrew, Vehicle crew, Infantry in Riot scenario with petrol bombs


    Oh look, they also come in brown too! Imagine that
    http://www.militarybootsdirect.com/b...s-340-des.html


    These boots are constructed of Nomex Flame Resistant that will provide a protective layer against flame and fire hazards.

    The 340 DES is also Army Combat Uniform Approved, Army Flight Approved, and Army Combat Vehicle Approved.

    Big difference between fire retardant and fire proof

    I don’t see any navy (worldwide) going about their daily business in Fire Brigade style boots

    Why cant the Naval Service (less than 1,000 people) be the same brown as everyone else (Army, Air Corps, ARW). It would be a hell of a lot cheaper and more uniform across the entire DF!

    Sure that would make sense so it wont happen!
    Because a brown boot would look really stooopid when worn with a Navy,blue and gey DPM pattern.

    "Let us be clear about three facts:First of all.All battles and all wars are won in the end by the Infantryman.Secondly the Infantryman bears the brunt of the fighting,his casualties are heavier and he suffers greater extremes of fatigue and discomfort than the other arms.Thirdly,the art of the Infantryman is less stereotyped and harder to acquire than that of any other arm".

    No more stoopid than the idea of Navy, Blue and Grey DPM. They can both be stoopid together. It has been done before!
