    • I've been wearing leather boots for a year already.

      But the problem is, under Singapore's humid weather, my feet will tend to develop rashes when wearing boots. The skin will harden, die and peels off. Foot powder and foot glides have only limited effects.

      So I would like to clarify before recklessly spending the money (or credits): is Gotex Boots really better for ventilation, more comfortable and healthier for the feet, or is it just a myth (like what some of the commanders claim)?

    • I hate the goretex boots, especially during river crossing. i prefer the old type SAF leather boots with insoles bought from emart.

    • i go for gortex coz it softer lighter n hence more comfortable.

      have no prob on ankle support.

      have no prob on water getting into boots.
