Inspired by traditional combat boots, 5.11 Tactical created the Skyweight Waterproof Side Zip Boot to serve as a durable, functional boot with minimal layering. The nylon shank provides increased stiffness, while the broad forefoot can help increase control and balance. An integrated eVent waterproof, breathable, bloodborne pathogen-resistant membrane offers protection against liquids. The tactical outsole offers self-cleaning forefoot lugs and a rear heel brake for maximum mobility, arch lugs provide assistance for ladder and rope work, and an 8mm heel-to-toe drop increases acceleration and improves responsiveness. A new braided nylon lace is available for select models.
