If you wear boots now, like Doc Martens, you'll notice how thick those soles are. In the old days, especially the militaria those boots are patterned from, they were originally made of leather, so they're fairly robust. In fact, the molded grips in the synthetic soles today actually pattern themselves on the kinds of hobnails used then.God those nails better be shorter than the thickness of the shoe's sole!!!
