Question Red comat boots

Hello,

could someone tell me in which Army units of the IDF the soldiers wear the red-brow combat boots instead of the black one?

I know that the Paratroopres wear the red ones and the Caracal light infantry unisex battalion. Are there more units?

After searching around on the internet, the one quote that stands out and seems to be true are "the red boots are better guarded secrets than a nuclear program."

Can't find them anywhere, but, it does look like ebay may get some every now and then.

Maybe someone else will have better luck.

Red boots. ahhhhhhhh.

I do have a pair, and they are routinely asked about. They weigh less and yes, they are cool. During regular duty it is rare to see them outside of specific units. Like the jump wings that you can earn with five jumps, the boots have the same deal. I have no idea if that is still the case today.

Obviously the biggest hurdle is getting invited to earn them.

If you see them on eBay or someplace similar, they will either be well worn, or someone lucked out and got them in a recent war in a reserves unit.

Rafi, are they the red "jump" boots?? I seen a couple of different types, to include just a regular red combat boot in old ebay postings.

Ouch. I got mine with my wings, thank you very much.

Used to be when you did a search engine run on my old unit,
one of the descriptions came up "Death Squad".

Now they want to know if I got my boots at the Shekem (PX).
