The Maelstrom TAC FORCE 8 inch tactical zipper boot is specifically designed with tactical and law enforcement professionals in mind. It is made with components that will enhance your performance in diverse environments. Polish-able, water-resistant leather and nylon are employed for the upper, keeping your feet dry and comfortable. Its breathable moisture wicking liner prevents bacterial buildup and cools down your feet during high activities. The padded collar and tongue offers extra all day comfort. To enhance speed, a lightweight, flexible, shock-absorbing synthetic compound is engineered for the midsole system, providing superior re-bounce and cushioning to your feet. Furthermore, the durable rubber outsole provides optimal traction, resulting in slip prevention and stability when step on slippery, rough, or soggy surface. The cemented construction makes the boot lighter and flexible to allow swift movement while undergoing active pursuits. Unlike other laced boots, TAC FORCE 8 inch boot has a side zipper for easy and fast on and off when you are either in a rush or simply lazy to tie your boots. With these practical design features and half price of other comparable brand boots, the Maelstrom TAC FORCE 8'' is a great choice for law enforcement, work personnel and outdoor enthusiasts.
