Title: Arid / desert magnum boots in Ottawa / Gatineau?
Post by: opcougar on October 21, 2011, 16:28:50
Got a pair of desert boots for my deployment next week, and although I have been wearing them for a few days now, they are the old style tan boots and the toes on my right foot hurts like crazy. Does anyone know of a store I can walk into in Ottawa / Gatineau that sells the magnum tactical or similar boots please?

Thanks

PS: Clothing store in Hull says they don't stock boots and that it will take 3 weeks to order

Most Surplus stores will probably carry Magnums or SWATs. How'd you get issued the old tan boots? Everyone should be getting the new DCBs which are far better than the Altama ones.

R. Nicholls, 5300 Canotek Road, Unit 4, Ottawa, Ontario, K1J 1A4, Tel.: (613) 747-3456

They are suppliers for military and law enforcement.

I bought a pair about a month ago. They have many sizes and models in stock or they can get them pretty quick. Let me know how it turns out.
