  1. Finally, been waiting for this for a while.

    About time somebody made a minimal drop boot!

  3. James E says:

    Finally! Some minimal boots! No more hacking off the heel and resolving old desert boots.

  4. Lola Deswa says:

    Very educational video for anyone wanting to know about this new boot. I have always thought of Belleville Boot as the leader in boot design and quality. Hope to get a pair once available.

    I need this. Vibram Five Fingers have made me a believer and I was a huge skeptic.

    Not the first on the market. Nike would be the first with their SFB. I’ll definitely try out one of those boots when I have to replace my SFB.

    • INF says:

      nike modeled theirs after the sopc special

      • Anderson says:

        And the SFB’s are definitely NOT minimalist. Pronounced toe spring, thick soles, and a pretty good drop. Mini-Mils are pretty much the first.

    Would love to see some comp toe minimalistic boots.

  8. Tyler says:

    Make an EGA model! For the love of God please! It kills me to see all these great boots that not one Marine can wear

  9. SFTAC says:

    They are cool but I would go a 1/2 size up.

  10. Daggert says:

    I have the nikes as well and find the toe box constricting, while my heel slips around in a larger size. These may be the answer. Now if they could match my <10 oz a pair running shoes. Once upon a time I was wearing 70oz a pair boots everyday.

    Sage Green please!

    Now that`s just awesome. I have multiple injuries from IED blast. I`m still in recovering phase and I need to remain my foot below ankle active. I have spent a lot of time to find best boots for my condition. Think we might have a winner here. 😀
