The Garmont T8 boot features a Super Vibram sole for maximum traction, stability, and shock reduction. The boot also utilizes a foot bed cup system which reduces the amount of stress on the ankles and knees, and a heel retention strapping system for stability and support. The upper is constructed with abrasion-resistant split grain leather combined with dd diamesh for breathing and ventilation.

The Garmont T8 is available for unit and agency purchase through ADS Inc. Dealers interested in carrying the T8, contact boots@outdoortactical.com.

    These are some great boots, really glad they are getting an NSN. Hopefully more troops get the chance to use these!

    Bought a pair of these in 2009 and they lasted 2 months in RC-E Afghanistan, plus they’re made in China so don’t see how they could’ve been given an NSN at all.

      Agreed. Don’t All Textiles Have To Be Berry Compliant To Be Issued An NSN?

    • SSD says:

      They have an NSN because there is no US equivalent boot. The nomenclature is apparently, Boot, Jungle, Rapid Drying.

      Might be why they weren’t the best boot for RC-E.

      Don’t know where you chewed up a pair of Garmonts in RC-E that fast, sounds to me more like a lack of taking care of your stuff.

      I bought the first generation in 08, great boot until they both started falling apart around the pinkie toe. I hear they have gotten better but I’ve since gone to the Nike (my first also fell apart on the tread, but lasted much longer) and haven’t looked back.

      • Ben says:

        The hole right at the pinkie toe is a common problem from what I’ve seen, they say if you use some sort of leather conditioner it will stop it. Boots are made to be worn and wear out.

        Preferred my Nike’s over my Garmonts for patrolling.

    simplified acquisition threshold by prime contractor does not meet minimum.
