A soldier’s feet will take them far and wide, and their boots need to protect no matter where they go. Here are three common climates where soldiers need insulated boots:
- Desert Areas: Although deserts are scorching during the day, they become frigid once the sun goes down. Without proper tactical gear, soldiers face injury or inferior performance.
- Wintry Regions: Moving quickly and decisively in freezing weather is already hard; a soldier’s gear shouldn’t make their job more difficult.
- Wetlands and Swamps: Although watery regions aren’t always cold, they make for slick and moist foot travel. Waterlogged boots slow soldiers down and can cause trench foot.
