    Saudi Arabian Desert Boots Used by the USSF

    Post by nkomo on Tue Oct 06, 2009 10:05 pm

    Before anyone says anything, I know these boots are of Saudi Arabian manufacture. That being said, this type of boot was sometimes used by US Special Forces when they did cross-border operations. These boots were not very popular because they were cheaply made and were exceedingly uncomfortable to wear. However, they were used because of the different tread pattern on the sole compared to the US boot. From what I understand, the SF also used cardboard on the sole of US boots to mask the tread pattern. Thought some of the modern collectors might like to see what these boots looked like so they can be on the lookout for a pair.

    I also have two other pairs with a slightly different design. I will dig those out and place them here for reference.

    Interesting boots. The soles almost resemble the tread on the older UK-issue desert boots.
