The Jungle boot is made for use by the military in the jungle or other types of humid terrain. It is also a popular boot for the civil population for expeditions in jungle like environments. The Jungle boot usually refers to the US army jungle boot, which is held in high regard.
The Jungle boot has particular design features that make it suitable for jungle like conditions. They have vent holes and often a canvas upper to improve ventilation and remove moisture via drainage. A Panama sole helps prevent mud clogging these air vents, helps keep the foot cool and lets moisture out. A high lace up leg guards against leeches.
