Best shoes for an apocalypse scenario?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Obviously we can't carry around our collection of GATS and common projects in our TOJ helmet bags when nuclear war/zombies/global flooding/virus outbreak/etc occurs.

 

What would be the best shoes or boots to wear during an apocalypse or disaster scenario? Expect the worst.

I'd say look for the tallest waterproof boots you could find as you'd be in seriously deep shit. :-)

For specific scenarios: smelter boots, high-altitude mountaineering boots or waders.

For not so specific scenarios: laced firefighter boots

Merle (The Walking Dead) wore Red Wing Iron Rangers in the show. Rick is wearing cowboy boots. 

 

But at the end Merle was killed... RW IR : Cowboy Boots 0:1.

Aye. And can't believe I am even replying to this thread LOL. 

 

Rubber boots are the best choice for waterproof and exposure to urine and shit. Also work well to provide scent control when you need to get within kissing distance of a big game animal to stick an arrow into it so you can eat. RM Grand Slam Sheep Hunters with HDLP also work well. I have found that when killing things they really don't care so much about your style and what the hell your wearing. Engage the e-locker and put her in 4 low to haul them out. Unless it is another human in self defense of course, then let em lie where they fall.

But having spent a fair number of years doing Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare training for those scenarios it doesn't much matter. Rubber boots again but without a whole lot of other things going in your favor do the same as when you have a faulty gas mask. Remove mask, bend over and put your head between your legs, and kiss your ass good bye.
