Bertsa for the US Army

One of the most important elements of a soldier’s outfit is, of course, shoes. Armies of the world are switching to practical berets. These shoes are comfortable, practical and indispensable for the military.




In many ways, the huge popularity of just such shoes is explained by a special design that provides tight fixation of the leg above the ankle, thereby protecting against dislocations, injuries, sprains and helps to increase maneuverability and comfort when crossing rough terrain, and staying in field conditions.

In the next issue of Rud & Co, a US Army soldier Ivan Rudenko (a former Ukrainian soldier) shares his impressions of buying a new pair of army shoes.

To date, the army shoe model presented in the video is considered one of the best among light tactical boots approved for the US Armed Forces. Some believe that these army boots, by their characteristics, occupy a solid second place after the Danner USMC Rat shoe option.

What features of the Belleville One Xero Z20 Combat Boot model provide them with extra strength and comfort, what do the US Army say about berets? The answers to these and other questions are in the video.

      I bought a pair of American berets for a demobilization, there was a lot of this goodness in the market in Sevastopol, APUs went to them, they are not lightweight, leather, but after our pickaxes - like six, I moved to a Mercedes ... Yes, six is ​​not a bad car but Mercedes - made for people ...

        The Kirzachs were good at WWII for our collective farm, but of course for the army. The normal boot should be yuft, it is soft and the foot does not sweat like that. I personally liked our Morpech boot, with which I stamped Mother Earth for 6 years.

          Kirzachs were good WWII

          And bast shoes were good for cavemen. apparently you need to equip the army with bast shoes? fool

          It’s time, already, to understand that something that was good before is now complete garbage, and no matter what it is, a yuft or not a yuft boot, or berets, not berets, no difference. Military footwear must meet certain requirements and it is precisely they that need to be discussed, it is precisely they that need to be talked about, and not shifted from empty to empty, and to conduct hollywood verbiage in the style of "boots of berets".
          And personally, I put the main parameter "protection of legs from sharp objects" such as glass, nails, fittings, but commonplace stones and bumps. Such protection allows the fighter to survive, he runs faster along the intersection, because he is less distracted. And a good berets-like shoe gives this protection, but there is no boot, make a boot with this protection then and we can continue the discussion.
          1. I agree to stand still can not go to excellence. I would like to take amer’s boots for myself), I preferred to serve boots in the army, because you can cook legs in hot boots and you can freeze them in the cold where you couldn’t run and you need to get used to it for more than a month, and if you put crocodiles on, you’ll also erase )))
          2. In fairness, for boots, irregularities of glass and stones with reinforcement are not a problem in principle. And with boots, mud and puddles up to 20 cm ford and feet are always dry.

              Well, “for the sake of justice” in the Russian information field, “berets” call for a huge variety of shoes to survive. That's why I wrote earlier “berets-like shoes” (here I take all the shoes with a strong but flexible sole and lacing). For example, there are “berets” where the “tongue” in the lower 20cm is tight (that is, you can stand there in the puddles), and there is also “berets” where a strip like a foam is sewn on the tongue (lets air through but not water), and there are also “boots” (yes again in quotation marks wink ) where on top there are "patches" with lacing. It’s also worth noting that the same “boots and berets” can differ greatly depending on how you wear them (see below for an example of “thanks to the pea”), this is just on the topic “cook in the heat and freeze in the cold” .

              In general, the best special shoes are made by some American mini-company, there are Kevlar inserts, chemical protection, water protection, ventilation, and heating, and they look like cosmonaut shoes, and the cost is over 20k , the truth is released piece by piece and manually (in fact, therefore, the cost of overdraft).

        A matter of taste. I have two pairs of army berets in stock. Honestly do not like. Severe, uncomfortable. The skin is of course strong but tough. I prefer light high mountain boots. Reliable and easy. If correctly selected, their legs are much less tired than from the army.

          To be honest, God was merciful to compare it was not given, but given the weight of the kirzachs, in which I departed at one time, I think the berets more humane.

            So I happened, actually, and now I have to. I will say one thing, both have pros and cons. I would prefer an intermediate option. There were such boots in time, in the airborne forces, with a half-shortened bootleg. So, they have a cloth liner in the form of a sock for place footcloths and it would be happiness.

              My footcloths did not bother me. Wound "on the machine", went without any problems. My first kirzachs got so crushed on my leg that I couldn’t wear others, took them back from the caper, gave them new ones, and served them (though the service is sedentary - on the second floor below level 0)

        It’s better to work with kirzachi, the laces on the berets burn laces, and if, like my Turkish, over a meter, you will find such figs if not slings from a parachute, and then the video will be like a follower of one of the sub. culture.

          Just put on footcloths for berets or specialized socks, or, like most, tuck your trousers into berets and undo under your foot (the top and bottom are stronger in the center weaker) thanks to the "pea" from the crotchless trouser leg, the blood flow will not be pinched at least.

            I have a lot of experience in berets and boots, most importantly dry legs. But I’m for high boots, not berets. And for socks with woolen, even in the summer. He takes it away. Plus, the lining is made of Gore Tex. No mazoles, not sores.

              That's right, berets are too short. My son served as a border guard (Moldova). Usually they walked in boots, they went to the border strictly in knee-high boots. If in berets, then in slush or protso early in the morning from wet grass, after 1/2 hour, the pants to the knees are wet.

                      Are you telling me this ?! Do you think there is a border in the middle of the river and border guards on boats? In those days, there was still a thorn on the shore from Soviet times. Filmed after the events of April 2009. Patrols walked far from the river, there grass is waist-deep.

      And you do not pry ahead of the engine. When they raid then, and take warning. And the kirzachu is really loud “cheers!”, And quiet thanks too. A fighter performs tasks under different conditions. The terrain is different in relief, in soil. Season again, weather conditions. It’s hard to figure out the universal stupid for a soldier with absolute convenience. So kirzachi for their time were quite normal shoes with some claim to versatility. For those who understand of course. hi

      He served in the MP, boots were summer, shortened. I don’t know how it was in berets, but in such boots it was very good.
      PS In a big war, socks can end in the first month, footcloths can be made from anything.
      PSS In boots, the best option for socks + footcloths, do not go astray at all. And the socks do not wear out, 2 pairs will last for several months. Checked. )

    These shoes are comfortable, practical and indispensable for the military.

    Before the army, I also believed that boots are the past, and our boots are all .....
    At first, in the army, they gave me boots, then I already bought my berets - and I regretted it ....
    High boots are good to march on the parade ground, or in the desert, no more. On rough terrain, in our latitudes, they will yield to boots.))) This was the first time I realized when I put on my berets under a raincoat, in the rain ... And all the water from the raincoat, when walking, safely flowed into berets, and they immediately became full of water, which did not add comfort. There is no such problem in the boots - the bootleg is higher than the edge of the raincoat, and the water drains quietly to the ground.
    The second case, which made me regret the berets, happened a couple of months later when the snow fell. And we were forced to crawl in deep snow, according to Plastunsky, as a result of which, after a couple of minutes, in berets, it was full of snow, in boots there was no such problem ....
    This is so, offhand, that I remember in the army, about the berets ...)))

        In winter, you sometimes have to walk around the garden in the snow in the snow --- I’m tightly laced and generally do not penetrate moisture. The truth is that I have mountain boots “Merrell” and they even have a mark on them that they are “water proof”. It means that such "crocodiles" were given to you in the army that they didn’t keep snow / that’s how the berets in our army, by the way, were called /. If the boot is high and tightly laced, then the snow simply has no way inside the boot.

      You can throw a boot, it looks very beautiful in flight, a samovar is opened, it doesn’t work out with a berets, if only it is boiled and eaten like Charlie Chaplin. Well and in the end, not being afraid to soak the footcloths, calmly overcome a water obstacle. And yes, when wet footcloths can be turned over and put on the dry side.

              I think that we’ll introduce this, it’s impossible to smoke on trains already, but at stations where, in theory, you can, cops with hundreds in the bushes are hiding, seriously I saw this at the CHU station. There is already a rumor that people walking along the street are being hindered.

    Good shoes are the key to quick maneuver in the mountains and forests. Good berets plus good thermal socks - the soldier does not feel tired. It took up to 120 km in 8 days with a big backpack in the fields, mountains, on the rocks and fords (who understands what mountain tourism is) - and the legs rest ... It’s not for nothing that our specialists respect foreign shoes. Honestly, ours, too, have learned to make berets. For 5 thousand I buy berets lightweight one domestic factory - for 3 years of brutal operation is enough. Socks, too, for three years, by the way.)))

Have not found. It is clear that the mass army is difficult to put on shoes from Zamberlan, although the Ministry of Emergency Situations massively bought it for its units. But for some reason, how it bites, so the combat units change their shoes and even rearm themselves, so that there are more chances to stay alive. And note, there are definitely no kirsachs on this list ...

    To date, the army shoe model presented in the video is considered one of the best among light tactical boots approved for the US Armed Forces.

    For all this, servicemen are allowed to independently purchase third-party shoes with state reimbursement, because it is believed that it is better for the soldier to perform the task in unregistered but comfortable shoes, rather than tormenting in the breech shoes if it was not possible to find the right one. This applies only to shoes. In clothes, "partisanism" is not allowed.

      I don’t know if it’s true or true, or maybe an advertising move, but ...
      Once upon a time, when long loafs cost 13/15 kopecks in stores ,, Sporting goods '' interesting shoes were sold, according to the current berets.
      They were produced by a Czech company, either Cebo, or Botas. They served me for about seven years, well, they were very convenient !!!, though they cost 55 rubles.
      And now come true, they say that in Vietnam the American ,, soldiers / liberators '' used these Czech berets, because in their own way, falling into a pit trapped with a sharpened bamboo, they received severe injuries of the foot and ankle. And in Czech there was a very strong metal arch support (such crap that holds and gives shape to the sole) and the sole did not break through the bamboo.
      Maybe I don’t know?

        The Americans thought they would take it abruptly. And the Vietnamese, like the Czechs at that time, studied Soviet science. And about the "garlic" remembered

        and invented a lot of them.

        that in Vietnam, the American soldiers / liberators used these Czech berets

        I don’t think they bought directly from the Czechs, most likely the shoes were on sale in the civilian market, but after that they launched the production of such shoes and the durability of the shoes, including soles pay close attention.

      Came into the battery salagi. Among them was one Ossetian. A rare instance of the human race! Bogatyr! He didn’t fit into the system, he occupied one and a half places in the rank and therefore went last, a sort of bow-tie over all towering in soldier's slippers. His civilian quarantined shoes were seized, but they could not pick up the size of their boots, some forty or the last. They picked up a form, although it was too small for him. So I went on a demobilization, but all of him did not receive boots to order! It was good May, before winter-autumn there was time.

    Bertsa is one thing, and regular mention of this channel is another. It already smells bad.

    Bertsa, and the truth - are different. And there is one more garbage, berets are always more dimensional, well, and the protected sole gives in the forest not a plus, but a minus. Like a cow on ice. But even so, berets - that’s what happens different. They, too, like trunks - just for different tasks, and here it is - one should understand not a moron with a barrel, and not an ensign in a warehouse, but a little higher

      There are also tactical shoes, from moccasins (sneakers) to mountain shoes with spikes and hard soles.

          The hunter himself with experience, sometimes I prefer sneakers. Although there are boots, not berets, summer nubuck with mesh inserts. But still, like an elephant, stomp.

    Like in space. The Americans come up with a pen to write in space, and the Russians continue to write in pencil. Americans need boots, and in the Russian army they go in kirszach.

    In general, I would like the author to go to Dordoi to go to Kyrgyzstan, where they sell military equipment.
    His horizons would expand on shoes, there are shoes from all over the world.
    Yes, I’m not sure that the USA is producing something themselves, there was a tiger jungle lump bought in the USA, Texas. Production is either Guatemala or something from the countries of C. America.

    In general, there is experience, it is time to introduce what is in Kazakhstan and what in Kazakhstan, ordinary boots, not berets, 70% garrison life.
    If there is a field exit, then pants from raincoat fabric and a cloak will help a lot. The main thing is that the shoes are high. That would be a lump if you want to fill.
    Tall grass, dew, rain, snow. Everything can be solved with a set of raincoat fabric.
    With classic berets and boots you can already say goodbye.

    In the idial I would have boots but soft as berets ... now a shaft of such workwear shops for working on the streets. More accurately kirzacha (plus a lining, belts for change of width) oil resistant non-slip sole. And there are no flaws and berets and kirzach.
    And it’s better to make trousers for graduation ... Just not as if it were separate in the tzahal (cunning Jews leave the trousers as classic), but I put them in the bottom of my trousers, rip open the turn, put in an elastic band and sew it ...

      I have a familiar calculation commander in the fire, so they prefer kirzachi instead of the boots provided. It's easier to put on. Yes, the heat from the sole does not pull like that.

    To be honest, God was merciful to compare it was not given, but given the weight of the kirzachs, in which I departed at one time, I think the berets more humane.

    tibia, yuft is heavier than a kirzach, especially on molten soles. even heavier mountain boots are rickety. The best option for tracking is hiking shoes.

    And personally, I put the main parameter "protection of the legs from sharp objects" such as glass, nails, fittings, and commonplace stones and bumps.

    Special boots with a metal toe cap and insole give the greatest protection, but this is for construction, for pedestrians is not the best choice. but in general, if you take shoes as part of the equipment, you need to consider not boots but a set of boots, snowshoes, cross-country and hunting skis, cats for ice - horizontal and vertical walls, fastenings on the entire set should ensure the use of a standard boot, and the boot should It is presented for different climates - temperature conditions, but with wide adjustments for leg fullness - straps on the foot and ankle. shoe covers are indispensable both when moving in the snow, and on a wet meadow.

    I have leather berets from Belarusians, combined domestic “lightweight” and winter Chinese made for Americans. The lightest and most comfortable Chinese. Well, how can that be ??? We can think of colorful and practically unnecessary stripes - yes, we can, and shoes that are in equipment are one of the most important places, but ...

    What shoes are best for a fighter? In peacetime, even lacquered with bows and chains, in war - durable, comfortable, seasonal and ... cheap. I believe that boots on these parameters will be out of competition. And when you need to quickly put on shoes, change shoes, then there’s nothing to argue about.
    At the same time, sneakers were preferred in Afghanistan; in Chechnya, as far as I know, rubber boots were held in high esteem. In general, as in the famous rhyme .. different shoes are needed, different shoes are important.

      Boots rule, if anyone in the subject. For two years, I got used to them and footcloths so much that I didn’t want any sneakers. By the way, the footcloth is easy and convenient to twist, dry. A hole will appear at the sock, what should I do?

    that's how you write.
    But: for the south, forest-steppe zone, boots are good, but for the north?
    Or is our country located in the latitude of Florida?
    And in sub-zero temperatures, in boots - how to go through the swamp?
    And in the north - almost everything is a swamp.
    Acroma of a part of Karelia, Kola and northern Urals.
    and there, in winter in boots, is no longer comfortable.
    and here everything is as before: everyone’s shoes are the same ... and if this doesn’t suit you, buy it yourself, but just don’t hang out with it

    The point of discussing what has been seen and comparing with the kirsachs? Merikos should be given credit and the quality of their ammunition, at a very high level. Maybe we have samples, but on a global scale they provide their own better. The size of the defense budget is affecting

    Again, gentlemen, talking about kirzachi friends of firefighters and friends of welders who are dripping red-hot metal, the article talks about shoes for military personnel stationed in Hawaii, and not about shoes of welders and firefighters in central Russia. You compare an elephant with a whale, who is stronger. Do not compare incomparable things, but rather show our worthy samples available to the rank and file. There is something for Americans to learn

    A few years ago, my son joined the army. I received new-fashioned “berets” and a uniform “from Yudashkin” in the military enlistment office. The fact that shit form, figs with her, and because of the “berets”, the son almost immediately lain in the hospital for 2 weeks - bloody corns. Then he exchanged old kirzachs for some of the old-timers for these shoes and served his excellent year, there were no problems. Yes, he will never wear this offspring of "govnodav", and even learned to twist footcloths))))

        Unlike you, he honestly served. I would like to see your pedicure shod in govnovody. For those in the tank I’ll explain. The new recruits were bullshit. Sabatons crush and rub. Outerwear does not let air through. My son served under Peter; we saw each other almost every week. Thanks to the commanders, they turned a blind eye to the short absences from the unit))). At first it was difficult, but after 2 months I was amazed to see my son in kirzach and second-hand Soviet cotton. Hazing? Nope. The fighters, realizing what rubbish they were given in the military enlistment office, by hook or by crook exchanged old, still Soviet clothes from Yudashkin for demobilization. The son, leaving on a demobilization, also "waved without looking." The jacket is beautiful, and it weighs, neither he nor I put it on, so is the memory of the service, and it is unsuitable even to go mushrooming into the forest.

    I read the comments ... A strange dispute of people who did not wear anything "Made in Yuesei." If on boots, then the looters from corcoran are better in strength and convenience than danners and sung in the video. This is the time. And who told you that US Army soldiers wear Belleville? An ordinary soldier wears berets, sewn in China, as well as clothes. These are two. No, well, I have flammable helicopter pants, sewn in the USA. I changed them in the studio to fit the male figure, not pandas, but at the same time I corrected the seams of the holy American quality on the fifth point. And so cool pants that have no analogues in Russia)

    In a word, everything, as always, is "the economy for the people should be economical."
