I don't think Binrat said they were black, just pimped out MkIVs. Can be made out of a brown leather.

Ack, I think I got the black colour in my head from reading the Toronto Star article and the photo they used and the below quote from the last page

I've heard from a reliable source that the CAF will be returning to Black Mk 4 leather combat boots except they'll come with vVbram soles and speed laces. And of course will be the only authorized boots to wear   ;D

Or even a nice purple-ish blue for the flyboys! (and girls... flygirls too!)

that's not the colour I want...can I order different ones?  Purple-blue won't go with my crew patch or my eyes dammit.
