Boot Label

A crate containing ten pairs of VZG7 boots.

The VZG7 Armored Boots are standard issue combat boots for the UNSC Marines, worn as a part of the Marine BDU.

Description Edit

The VZG7 boots appear to be standard lace-up combat boots covered in varying types of armor. Each pair of boots, with armor plating, weighs about 8.1 pounds.[1] The armor attached to the VZG7 boots covers the upper part of the shin from all sides. The boot itself is covered in lighter armor plating.[2]

In the later version, the metallic armor covering the upper shin appears to be separate from the boot, and does not cover the back of the leg. Armored coverings attached by straps are often worn on the boot for greater protection.[3]

History Edit

The predecessors of the VZG7 boots often contained more protective armor plating. The boots used by Marines stationed on the UNSC Spirit of Fire in 2531 were fully armored, with protective plating covering the whole boot and the shin, while the boots sported by the Marines aboard the UNSC Pillar of Autumn in 2552 included armor that covered the shin.

The VZG7 boots were first seen being worn by the Marines around October 2552, during the start of the Battle of Earth.[2] The boots, along with their newer versions have been in active use since then.[3]

TriviaEdit

  • Another name for these boots is "Boondockers".[4]
