Belleville to be Awarded Contract for Mountain Combat Boot

During the PEO Soldier media round table earlier today, COL William Cole PM Soldier Protection and Individual Equipment, stated that the Army has finally chosen a design for the Mountain Combat Boot from Belleville under the Soldier Enhancement Program. As the REF continued to purchase the Danner candidate boot, this news comes as a bit of a surprise since Danner looked like the “shoe in”. The boot is designed as a mid height alternate to the standard issue combat boot and better tuned for use in Afghanistan’s terrain where Soldiers often have to scramble up and down steep rock faced slopes. According to COL Cole a contract award for 25,000 pairs is forthcoming.
