OverviewEdit

The Magelovskie Boot was one of the first modern type combat boots introduced to the Soviet armed forces. According to paperwork it was introduced in 1967. The boot is made of yuft material and has ten lace holes. It can be easily distinguished by its various seams, especially the one on the toecap. They were used by VDV officers.[18]

The boots became known as Margelovskie, apparently in reference to Vasily Margelov a Soviet general of the VDV from 1961–1979 famous for the modernization of the VDV in this period.
