Finnish Black Army Boots for Hot Climate

The soldiers of Finland who are currently involved in peace-keeping operations in different "hot spots" of the world under a UN mandate use the same "desert boots" manufactured by HAIX as their German or Belgian colleagues. However, the Finnish footwear manufacturer "Jalas" has developed lightweight black shoes Model M05 for hot climates.

These Finnish army boots are styled similar to American black "jungle boots", which replaced the traditional green "jungle boots" of the mid-1990s and were made of composite materials: leather and "Cordura" nylon. Similarly to the black American boots, these Finnish boots feature soft "Cordura" cushion on the top and stitched-down reinforcing stripes of denser nylon on both sides of the boot in order to enhance the overall robustness and extra protection for the malleolus bones.

The out-sole also differs - it is new, just the same as in standard Finnish M05 boots. The lacing system is mixed: four lower pair of simple round eyelets are combined with four pairs of "MARK" speed lacing eyelets. The insole is removable, antibacterial and shock-absorbing.
