The Skyweight Side Zip Boot is constructed to provide today’s duty driven professional a high performance shoe in a resilient, lightweight design.
Inspired by traditional combat boots, 5.11 Tactical created the Skyweight Side Zip to serve as a durable, functional boot with minimal layering. Its metal-free design makes the GSA compliant boot an ideal choice for officers who are in and out of metal detectors. The nylon shank provides increased stiffness, while the broad forefoot can help increase control and balance. A new braided nylon lace is available for select models. For all day comfort and performance, the Skyweight Side Zip incorporates the RECON boots’ shoe platform and OrthoLite insoles. The boot is also compatible with 5.11’s blood type patch kit.
