GORE-TEX footwear provides durably and waterproof protection that is highly breathable in a variety of climate conditions. GORE-TEX fabric is engineered to keep moisture from entering the boot while allowing

perspiration to escape. The optimal combination of breathability and insulation keeps feet drier while maintaining comfort. This helps prevent feet from overheating or issues caused by excessive perspiration build up inside the military and tactical boots. The GORE-TEX lining is also POL (Petroleum, Oil and Lubricant)resistant)

We only use the finest quality full-grain, cowhide leather in all of our military boots. This durable leather is engineered for superior breathability and long-lasting wear.

Full-grain leather (the highest quality of cowhide leather) has many properties making it a superior material for footwear. It's thicker, stronger and less prone to cracking than other leathers, as well as more flexible and breathable. Cowhide leather also naturally repels moisture, retains its shape, and resists sun and heat damage, making it ideal for boots.



Each of our high-clearance steel and composite toes meet ASTM F2412-05 and F2413-05 standards for impact & compression and Electrical Hazard (EH) rated.   Design extras, such as padding under and around the safety toe and our flange-anchored construction, provide both increased comfort and safety to all our tactical and military boots.

Open-Cell Moisture Management System helps move moisture away from the foot to provide a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment.

Antimicrobial Function to fight against the presence of bacterial fungi associated with the cause of odor.

Low Compression and Long Term Cushioning to provide maximum long-lasting comfort.
