US military pressed to design special line of combat boots just for women
As a female paratrooper in the United States Army jumping from an airplane, I had a very different experience than my male counterparts, let me tell you why. Everything is incredible about jumping, the adrenaline rush, the skyline, the landing, not so much. Immediately upon exciting an aircraft a paratrooper is preparing for landing. The first time I jump from an aircraft and landed, I realized that my combat boots did not support my feet nor ankles. Because those boots are made for a man’s foot. From that moment it became my duty to solve this inequality.
