We reported earlier this month that the Army was considering a standard-issue athletic shoe, but many readers said there was a bigger priority when it comes to footwear: improving your Army boots.

“Army-issued boots are garbage,” one reader said on the Army Times Facebook page. “I see no reason to expect any better from running shoes.”

With this sentiment in mind, we want to hear from you. Do you agree the combat boots need improvement? How would you fix them? Be specific, and your suggestion may appear in an upcoming issue of Army Times.
