Herman survivor boots

Please don't think I am whacked, but in 1977 the Herman survivor boot company made a military boot in two styles, one in neopream sole, and one with the vibram sole. They were the finest military boot/hiking boot I ever own. Back then they were $60. Any of you that have been on a 27-28 day hump, hauling your house on your back can appreceate what a good boot means. What we have now for the military just absolutly blows. Anyone with an idea how to get ahold of the CEO for Herman? I lost the address. I actually talked to the CEO, and he agreed to bring our the line of boots again if our military stores on base would buy 300 pair (man, thats like one toilet seat!). Any help, please. Thanks.

Hate to tell you this LTC....

Herman's Survivors is now out of business. I would take a field trip to your local decent camping specialist and check out what's available these days.

I've got a pair or Herman Survivor snow packs. The bottoms need replacing. I've the bottoms replaced on my LL Beans. Got any ideas who can do the same with Herman's?

Try THE COBBLER & CORDWAINER, 73 CRESCENT AVE. NEW ROCHELLE, NY 10801 - (800)788-2668 http://www.cobcord.com/hikingbt.html
They do all types of repairs and they did a great job on my hiking boots (better then my boot maker)and I had them back in less then a week.

Hi Marc. I don't know if this will help, but try Huntsmart.com. They have some Herman Survivor field boots for sale. I'm not sure if they have what you are looking for. Good luck.

I've got a pair of Herman's Survivors Tracker boots, which I apparently purchased after they went out of buisness. My question is, is there any way I can find out what camo pattern they are in? It appears to be a Advantage-type camo, but I'm not sure.

Does anyone know what patterns were used by Herman's?
