As the name suggests, these are boots used by tank crewmen in the military. During WWI, then Captain George Patton, Jr. adopted this idea from the French military. These boots do not utilize laces that can become entangled in the many moving parts of a tank. Tank crewmen are also exposed to very muddy conditions, and the strap/buckle enclosures are much easier to loosen up than mud-hardened laces. Today’s modern versions have safety toes and have flame/chemical retardants used on the materials.
