Default New boots

I've been wearing the same pair of Bates (http://www.shoeshackonline.com/site/...te=google_base) for 3 years and they're starting to fall apart. If these were any other boots I would just go out and buy another pair, but these took a goddamn year to break in and they start off being as stiff as plywood. Therefore, I have decided that I'm going to try to get the same boots Christian Bale wore in the newest Terminator movie. Problem is, I have no clue what they are. Can ya'll help me out?

I still have my old combat boots I wore when I was in Airsoft. Cost me over 100 for them.

I'm not asking for suggestions, I'm asking for the name of a certain pair of boots

I own two pairs of Timberland 6 inch boots and they work fine and look nice too IMO. Ifyou plan on using them a lto you might ant to get some gel soles as the sole in the shoe is pretty hard. I got a pair of brown ones for 70-80 bucks, the black and wheat (the famous gangsta color) will run you somewhere ovr 100 depending on where you get them.

Fuck it, I'm just going to get a pair of jungle boots ( hopefully I can find a pair in size 13 wide instead of the usual size 25 extra skinny)

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any jungle boots that fit so I bought a pair of Corcorans. They're exactly the same as my current boots except the have a steel shank and are one inch shorter
