Gotta be Danner they fit like tennis shoes once they get broke in. I wear the Danner 453GTX. They are light, just tall enough for the ankle support and waterproof.

I also wear the Converse Desert boots, wore them at the Kandahar Airfield while working for a private contractor. They are light, sturdy, comfortable and provide decent traction and easy to take off. Just got a new pair for the season.

Converse C8991 Combat Boots Safety Toe. It is hard to find anything else in a size 16.

These boots worked 12 hour minimum shist 7 days a week for years in Afganistan and stayed comfortable. I have a pair on right now.

Hey You were at KAF as well. Did they ever finish the international airport?. I left KAF in 2006 and went it Joint Base Ballad in Iraq.

I've been wearing these for several years now

however in recent years I've had ankle problems so I'm going to have to switch to something with more ankle support. My right ankle has been weak for a couple of years and I broke the fibula in my left leg about a month ago. Sucks.

I'm currently wearing some good ol' Red Wing boots. They cost me like $180, but I think they're well worth it. I havent had any problems with them so far and they are very comfortable. The ones I have are waterproof aswell. I have had these for several months so I cant give durability reports, but I fully expect these to last me a long time.
