Converse is the perfect urban and boat footwear. > Cheap as hell > Matted and rubber sole gives fantastic grip on wood, tile, metal, etc. > Hightops have good ankle support if laced right > Can also serve as basketball shoes if you like to break ankle on the court Prove me wrong.
>>28454825 Why is the "operator" boat painted white with a cargo container on it? Why does the cargo container have a side door? Why does the cargo container side door have that type of latch on the outside?
Although desu those LALO boots basically seem like the most all around OPERATOR boot for NSW needs now, save for arctic warfare I guess. >All the benefits of a dive booty so you don't lose your fins for OTB without being a dive booty >Fill the needs of a outdoor/hiking/combat boot >Fast roping plus on top of that Price is pretty high, but the SEAL motivator I talked to in HS said he had 4 pairs of boots plus a back up pair for each pair and the LALOs seem to hit each point he had for needing a separate boot.
looks like he's wearing skate shoes more than converse. Anyway, he's on a ship. on a ship, you wear shoes that are different than shoes you would wear innawoods. You are on a bunch of flat, hard wet surfaces. Flat, rubber soled shoes are better than something with a bunch of lugs on them. This is why boat shoes have soles that are just slabs of siped rubber. He can also probably kick them off easier if he falls in the water.
>>28455205 >>28455198 Really? What's he going to swim after? The ship or the zodiacs traveling at 20 knots in chop? You're not going to get rid of your shoes because you fall into the drink. Maritime issued plates and vests are neutral/+ buoyancy, they'd just tread water until their spotter craft rounds them up, that's what it's there for.
Most shoes float, at least initially. You can do this real neat thing where you grab the shoes after you kick them off and put them back on later. It is actually easier to tread water barefoot with shoes on your hands than with the shoes still on your feet, because your feet do most of the work keeping you afloat. If you had ever actually been near a larger body of water than a toilet bowl, you'd already know this.
>>28455339 >>28455354 Its not that big a deal. Gear has some natural buoyancy, and if someone's sole purpose is to be athletic in the water, it wouldnt be that hard to stay afloat. What do they do after, when their running shoeless on land? Thats goofy as fuck I cant believe you people are seriously considering this
You realise that expecting and not expecting are two, very different things right?
There's a reason why you aren't allowed to keep your fucking hands in your pockets in practically every navy that exists. You know why? Because you'll been in shock and won't be able to get your hands out of your pockets.
>>28455626 >>28455741 >>28455626 Yes I do realise. Carrying kick-off shoes incase of overboard and expecting to ford a river are both expecting. And most times it's physically swimming, not wading. I imagine a gun and ammo would make a difference, but training and steroids do too.
>>28454825 Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus recently sent a memo to Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller directing him to review the Marine Corp’s position titles to ensure their gender neutrality. Mabus told Neller to drop the term “man” from position titles so that they become gender integrated by the deadline of April 1, according to the Marine Corps Times.
“As we achieve full integration of the force … this is an opportunity to update the position titles and descriptions themselves to demonstrate through this language that women are included in these MOSs,” Mabus wrote in the Jan. 1 memo. “Please review the position titles throughout the Marine Corps and ensure that they are gender-integrated as well, removing ‘man’ from the titles and provide a report to me as soon as is practicable and no later than April 1, 2016.” But Navy official who spoke anonymously the the Marine Corps Times claimed that Mabus does not want position titles like “infantryman” and “rifleman” to be altered but instead intends to change titles where “man” exists as a separate word.
I've seen kinesiology researchers say that we have been designing shoes wrong from the beginning, the human body is designed to walk toe-to-heel; it's much quieter, more efficient and transfers far less shock to the joints.
And Converse have totally flat soles, do they not? Could be the reason they are great for sneaking.
