Big news really, because other than desert boots, the British army has never had boots in any tone other than black.

As part of a contract worth £80 million, troops will have the choice of wearing five different boots, depending on where they are based and what job they are doing. The five types available are:

  • Desert Combat: worn by dismounted troops conducting high levels of activity in desert environments exceeding 40 °C
  • Desert Patrol: worn by mounted troops, typically drivers or armoured troops conducting lower levels of activity in desert environments exceeding 40 °C
  • Temperate combat: worn by dismounted troops for high levels of activity in temperate climates
  • Patrol: worn by mounted troops, typically drivers or armoured troops conducting lower levels of activity in temperate climates
  • Cold Wet Weather: worn by dismounted troops for high levels of activity in temperatures down to –20 °C.

Each of the five boot types comes in two different styles, so personnel can wear whichever one is more comfortable for them.

New combat boots.
