This lightweight (39 oz/pair) tactical boot, from Original S.W.A.T. Footwear Co., is built for stealth maneuvers in a full range of environments and situations. Built on a genuine VIBRAM outsole, the boot features an aggressive, multi-terrain tread with a cushioning EVA midsole. The outsole has built-in arch reinforcements for rope rappelling and added foot protection. The EVA midsole is topped by a lightweight, riveted steel shank sandwiched between 2 flexible lasting boards for superior lateral stability, torsional strength, and additional under-arch protection. For added comfort, the removable molded orthotic footbeds are manufactured with gel inserts at the heel and forefoot. The SEK 6000 upper is made from coyote brown suede, reinforced with double-layer abrasion resistance in critical areas for durability and added traction when in the sniper position.
