Best Urban tactical boot made... period
I sold all my other boots after I purchased these.
Designed for the GSG-9 the elite special operations unit of the German Federal Police.
+Do not scream in your face Military/Tactical (as do Belleville Khyber's)
+ Can be worn on duty and/or look great with a simple pair of jeans.
+ Have no slip lace locks - two-zone lacing, the instep and shaft lacing can be separately and permanently fixed at different levels of tightness, Nickel-free lacing system, rust-free, no stud fastened through the lining.
+ These use a proprietary sole materiel, so when you walk on hard surfaces there is absolutely NO SOUND, complete stealth... amazing!
+ GORE® CROSSTECH® Footwear Protective Moisture Barrier an advanced four-layer waterproof/breathable protective barrier inner liner built around Gore CROSSTECH® barrier fabric, unsurpassed protection against bodily fluids, blood-borne pathogens, bacteria, and many chemicals.
+ Waterproof, oil-skid resistant.
+ KEVLAR® impenetrable sole inlay, protection from nails, spikes, sharps.
+ Cambrelle® Inner Liner
+ Anatomically shaped, removable insole with superb moisture transportation and good shock absorption.
+ Climate System uses the pumping movement, which permits air circulation with every step - moist air is released and fresh air comes in through the vent holes at the top of the boot.
+ Made with Sun Reflect that reduces the heating effect of the upper leather by direct sunlight.
+ Padded ankle section, good ankle protection.
+ Upper is full grain hydrophobic cowhide.
+ Highly abrasion-resistant materials, extra padding, and no seams on the inner side of the boot between the laces and sole. Allows the operator to wrap feet around a rope without damage to the boot or line while rubber gripping teeth at the arch provide improved braking/stopping.
Can you tell I like these boots?
I could go on, but these are simply the best Urban Tac. boots made in my opinion.
They fit like they were custom made, no break in period, no hot spots.
The sole is all black, in some photos the outer back edge looks Gray but it's not.
They take a great shine too.
I did not pay Retail for them.
German company, German design, but assembled in Croatia.
