The primary manufacturer of the ICB, both black and rough-out is Belleville. The new boots, both ICB and Hot weather, are neither jungle nor desert boot, but common boots. They are now coyote brown instead of the previous black in order to blend in better in almost all terrain. Belleville is precluded in selling the Marine rough out boot to anyone but Marine clothing sales, although its basically their Model 790 in a slightly different shade of brown and an embossed Marine emblem. At this time they will not even sell them to deployed Marines, I tried, that cannot get them though the clothing system.
