Does anyone know what kind of shoes/boots that Jack Bauer usually wears?

I just got to thinking today that I could use a new pair and the ones that Jack wears
must be very tough and durable.

More importantly, what kind of underwear does Jack wear? I bet it has kevlar and nomex in it.

Not necessarily. Remember, the whole season takes place in one day. If you can wear a pair of shoes out in one day (albeit a fast paced one), you are intense!

I'm sure they are something uber-tactical...





The pics are from another thread about his bug-out bag. Kinda hard to see the shoes, though. Looks like some sort of pull-on Wellingtons, maybe.

Say, is your middle name Arkus, by any chance??

On second thought, I think they are Hush Puppies. Look at the sole/heel in the second photo.

I wonder if they're suede???

All I know is that you wouldn't want to be in his shoes.

They're Tactical shoes, worn by Jack Freakin Bauer... we can now discuss them openly, without fear of being branded sissies.

It doesn't f*cking matter. Not one of you rat bastards can fill Jack Bauer's shoes. I'M the only one he calls hourly for tactical advice.

He goes commando. A man like him, that's the ONLY way he rolls.

They are Doc Marten 7A52 "industrials".

$124.95 retail.

Last season, he wore Ecco urban casuals
model 14834- 101 (black).

$99.95 retail.

It's a throwback to his old BUD/S days. Once a SEAL, always a SEAL. You know, all that sand...

It's my day off, so I've spent several hours searching the web
for shoes that match. I've used photos from the 2005 and 2006
season showing Jack's feet. The two brands/styles mentioned above
are identical matches.

Either that..........or.......

I just pulled it outta my a$$.

Jack is so tough he doesn't even have to take a piss.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 9:54:22 AM EDT
Actually the style is unimportant, the important fact is that they are made from skin from his buddy Chuck Norris.

Chuck had to have an industrial laser carve off the skin, since nothing else would do it. Since he is Chuck, the skin removed was automatically and instantly replaced by new skin.

The ultra tough Chuck skin was made into boots for Jack. They are industructible...except by Chuck....

I heard next season he has an endorsement deal for Birkenstocks.

The 7A52s I've found online don't look anything like the ones pictured above......to me.

You anger Chuck Norris with your false prophet.





Though personaly, I think Jack is better, but I wouldn't say it infront of Chuck.

A couple of closer views, blown up from the earlier photos:

They look like my dad's Seabee issue steel toe boots from the early 80's.
