The Taclite is 5.11's newest introduction to its "Race to Chase" footwear line. The 8-inch Side Zip Boot's upper is a combination of leather, mesh, and nylon. Inside, perforated EVA foam padding and a moisture management system keep feet cool and dry. A new comfort platform has an Ortholite sockliner, composite shank, and CMEVA midsole for cushioning and support. A newly developed outsole provides flexibility, traction in all terrains, and fast rope control. The boot's Zonal Lacing System and multiple notch-outs work well with included "sausage laces" to adjust to and secure any shape of foot, while the 5.11 Lace Station keeps your laces neat and secure.
