    The mines they are preventing are small, they will destroy your foot if you step on it, but not much else. These boots protect your foot.

      That’s honestly kind of horrific. Like I was expecting mines to be like something they step on and BOOM lights out.

      This sounds more like “boom” now you bleed out in agony as your foot is torn into small chunks

        Yep. Maiming-size mines are smaller and cheaper, and a wounded soldier that requires evacuation and treatment is actually more of a burden to a force than a dead one.
