The Force Recon, Thorogood's newest uniform boot, comes in 6-inch, 8-inch and oxford styles to fit any situation. Named after the Force Recon Marines, this tactical boot was designed for Special Forces in any environment. The boot has a highly sculpted upper to fit the contours of the foot and lower leg while providing flexibility. The outsole tread is made for maximum traction in all terrains. The midsole absorbs shock, as does the removable polyurethane cushion footbed inside the boot. The Force Recon is also available with waterproof SympaTex linings that prevent the penetration of more than 40 common chemicals as well as blood-borne pathogens.
