|Kanady vzor 72|
|A vz. 72 combat boots|
|Place of origin:||Czechoslovakia|
|Evolved from:||Kanady vz. 62|
|Evolved into:||Kanady vz. 90|
|Used by:||Czechoslovak People's Army|
The Kanady vz. 72 are derived from the vz.60 boots and are the first major modification of the Czechoslovakian family of combat boots. The main differences compared to the previous boots are a radically different sole pattern (however, again featuring the same number of reinforcement screws on the same places), different cuff and buckles and different seam composition.
They were designed as a replacement for vz.60 and vz.62 boots, and were thus the first universal combat boots of Czechoslovakian People's Army, due to being used for both officers and rest of the soldiers, since the vz. 60 had a previously mentioned model only for officers; the vz. 62. They were produced from 1972 until the 1990 when they were replaced by new, Vz.90 (Vzor 1990) combat boots for both newly formed Czech and Slovakian armies, which were actually just Vz.72 boots with only buckling removed and replaced by slots for laces until the upper end of the boot.
