Boot Sole Tread Patterns


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if boot sole tread patterns were given designations by the MOD?, also which contractors made them?


It would have been better if the MOD still kept the 'DMS' or 'BCH' type treads on assault boots or made a new version of it.

somehwere in an old book I have it mentions that the "commando sole" used by Marines with the small crosses of rubber were based on old climbing boots, that had metal crosses and studs, for grip. you could try aproaching a older British shoe/boot company that uses leather, like Clarks, or Brasher, they may be able to shed some light on it?
