Friday, July 19th, 2019

Charlie Sheen made “Tiger Blood” a thing, but this is where the tiger rubber meets the road.  The engineers at Combat Flip Flops developed a proprietary process to press the stealth, agility, and good looks of tiger, blend it with tactical black magic–and turned it into the sexiest footwear since a tiger claw.   BAM-The MK-19 LT’s in Tigerstripe.  Winning.

Two New Styles From Combat Flip Flops

Monday, July 15th, 2019

Floperator – Zero-Rise

You’ve been asking and we answered. The famous Floperator now available in a Zero Rise Option. 10% lighter than the originals, high rubber content midsoles to protect your feet, and injection molded arch supports.

Tacticool, not tactical. Man up and show your style in the versatile Floperator. Built to the Combat Flip Flops standard, the land, sea, and air compatible flips ensure you follow the SOF mantra, “Slow is Smooth. Smooth is Fast.” Standard, “Bad for Running. Worse for Fighting” patches come standard.. But we know you’re going to do what you want with them anyway. You’re a Floperator.


MK-19 – Black

It’s 2019 and it’s time for an upgrade at Combat Flip Flops. Meet the newest high-tops built to go anywhere and do anything.

It’s like a ninja and a goat got together and created the lightest, stickiest, and minimalist athletic boot to fit your needs. Walk the streets, hike the trails, hit the gym, fling nunchucks… whatever you do, you’ll be stuck to the ground and supported at the ankles.


LALO Announces Their Release of the Shadow AR670-1 Uniform Compliant Boot

Monday, July 1st, 2019

San Diego, Ca. (July 1, 2019) – LALO LLC, dba LALO Tactical, a San Diego, California footwear company, is pleased to announce The Shadow AR670-1 Uniform Compliant Boot. LALO saw a need to produce a uniform compliant boot that features an efficiency component and technology that allows the end user to be on their feet for long periods of time in varied work scenarios with less injury and fatigue.

This boot was also designed and produced due to the high volume of end- users requesting LALO make a Uniform Compliant Boot they could wear while on duty.

The LALO Shadow UCB – AR670-1 boot which is also TAA Compliant, allows Army personnel to tap into the technology LALO is known for from its Shadow Amphibian and Shadow Intruder series while keeping their superiors happy.

Some of this technology includes a moisture-wicking, hydrophobic antimicrobial lining, Cordura 1000D Nylon upper, Multi-density EVA designed to cushion at foot-strike and propel during toe-off, LALO’s two- way passive drainage system, as well as a puncture resistant composite plate with rotation for protection and fatigue reduction; just to name a few. Of particular note, when you are wearing the LALO Shadow UCB it is statistically proven that you are 20-35% more efficient when walking and when carrying a load over distance.

“We focus on the needs of the end users when designing and developing products, and we view the operators as elite end users. Our goal has always been to incorporate technology and materials that exist in the Atheletic footwear space into the Tactical world. The LALO 670-1 unform compliant boot delivers not only a very comfortable, but energy efficient footwear package to give the Operators a competitive advantage in all environments against all opponents,” said Jay Taylor, LALO CEO.

LALO wanted to take an everyday duty boot and bring it to the next level, adding attributes that better the operator, instead of hindering him or her. Compliant in its definition means to obey the rules, especially to an excessive degree. This boot obeys the rules, but in its own form, and to its own degree. LALO is always striving to push the limits of technologically advanced footwear, and the Shadow AR 670- 1 is a perfect example of a great piece of technology built for the masses.

Salomon Forces – Trade Compliant Quest Boots Now Available

Wednesday, June 26th, 2019

The Salomon Forces Quest has been manufactured for the past few years in China. The quality has been great, but the country of origin makes them difficult for US military units to purchase. Consequently, Salomon embarked on a project to introduce a Trade Act Compliant version, made in Cambodia.

Why does Trade Compliance matter to you? It matters because it is now easier for unit supply to purchase the footwear. Rather than you having to spend your own money on the boots you prefer, your unit can order them legally.

Salomon has also added several features to the Quest:
·        Anti Static
·        Anti Puncture
·        Anti Slip

These features will help make the boot more attractive to European militaries and law enforcement agencies, but North American customers benefit as well. In particular, the antistatic feature may be of interest to EOD.

Otherwise, these are the same boots you’ve been wearing for years. Lightweight, yet robust for wear in rough terrain, while carrying heavy loads.

Available in US sizes 4-6 (whole), 7 – 12, and 13-15 (whole). Colors are Coyote, Black, Slate Black and Ranger Green in a Gore-Tex lined variant and Coyote and Black for a nonlined version.

Available through your favorite Salomon Forces dealer.

OR Summer Market 19 – Skinners Barefoot Shoes

Friday, June 21st, 2019

Skinners are socks that can be worn in lieu of shoes. These Barefoot Shoes combine knit construction with a 2mm layer of polymer adhered to the sole to protect the foot from sharp rocks and such.

While there’s a whole argument to be made that we aren’t created to wear shoes on our feet and doing so actually weakens them, I love the idea of Skinners because I can walk from my tent to take a leak at 3AM without having to put boots on.

Available now in multiple colors (olive shown) and sizes from as well as Amazon.
