It’s a valid question – what make a boot a tactical boot?
Aren’t all boots just some sort of combination of leather, rubber and laces?
The answer to that is this…if you’re using any kind of boot for a specific purpose relating to work – especially if you’re military, law enforcement or some other form of public safety – then yes, it’s kinda considered a tactical boot.
But generally, a tactical boot is a boot that is designed to specifically handle the rigors of certain duties.
Designers of tactical boots understand how the boots are going to be used in the field, on duty and in certain situations. Once the intention of use is understood, the designers use specific components and techniques to build the boots.
Here are some key features of tactical boots:
- fast, lightweight and responsive – tactical boot needs to be an extension of your movements
- cutting-edge design features – but mixed with a foundation of a traditional construction process
- ankle support, sole support, toe protection – all make for happy feet
- quiet soles – you need to move quietly in any tactical situation
- oil, mud and water slip resistance – sure footing is key
- proven durability and ruggedness – you don’t want boots that will let you down
- functions under pressure – laces don’t break, zipper won’t catch, construction of boot won’t compromise your efforts
- a great value – yes, you have to keep budget in mind
If you work in security, law enforcement, the military or some other aspect of public safety, you probably rely on the quality construction of your duty boots to keep you going.
