Reebok Introduces Trailgrip Tactical Work Boot Series

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

St. Louis, MO (Jan. 21, 2020) – St. Louis, MO (Jan. 21, 2020) – Warson Brands, official licensee of Reebok for duty and uniform footwear, is excited to introduce its popular Trailgrip platform to law enforcement and military professionals with its new Trailgrip Tactical series.

All three models of the Trailgrip Tactical are built on a slip-resistant rubber outsole with an active traction lug bottom, great for durability and grip in a variety of terrains and surfaces. A MicroWeb lacing system keeps the foot locked in with lateral stability. Comfort is provided through a combination of a DMXRide Foam Midsole for super-responsiveness, a MemoryTech Foam Footbed for shaping to one’s foot, and a mid-cut design for ankle support over the long haul. All models contain no metal components for convenience in high-security environments.

RB3450 and RB3455, soft-toe black 6” and 8” versions of the boot, provide excellent coverage in all weather environments with standard waterproofing, while the RB3455 adds extra weather protection with its 200G 3M® Thinsulate® insulated lining.

RB3460, debuting in a coyote color, comes with a composite toe with extra-wide space for the toes. This 8” version, like the others, is easy to put on or take off due to the standard side zips.

The RB3450, RB3455 and RB3460 are now available for purchase at an MSRP of $135.00, $149.00 and $143.00, respectively, at Reebok Duty will display the full line of Trailgrip Tactical boots at SHOT Show booth #10179.

Reebok duty footwear and the Trailgrip Tactical series are also available through select retailers throughout the United States. For more information on the Reebok Trailgrip Tactical, visit

Sneak a Peek – Altama Urban Assault

Friday, January 3rd, 2020

Altama is expanding their Elite division to include a full Assault line, and the Urban is the first step in that direction.

The hugely popular Maritime Assault was originally intended for amphibious missions, to be worn sockless for quick dry capabilities and solid grip as you moved in and out of water and fins to foot traffic.

But customers started using them as a daily wear boot with tactical cred. Something for roping, as well as walking, for weightlifting and date nights, for the range and the office.

It will be sock ready with an antimicrobial land insole and reinforced heel lining, with a flex knit upper and a sticky rubber outsole that is designed for the ground you move on.

Available in mid and low heights for Black, Black MultiCam, Alpine MultiCam, and Alpine MultiCam CP (more on that later).

Want a closer look? Altama will have samples at SHOT SHOW 2020 in Las Vegas. Swing by booth #20149 and see what’s up.

Black Diamond – Mission LT Approach Shoe

Thursday, December 26th, 2019

Black Diamond Equipment has released a new line of approach shoes. The Mission LT is one of several models unveiled at last year’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Market.

It is intended for speed approaches, featuring a sock-like, bootie fit, that’s reinforced with a webbing cinch system. The Mission LT features their signature EnduroKnit, which is a one-piece, ultra-breathable upper for lasting temperature regulation that’s hyper-durable for season after season of abuse. A tuned EVA midsole provides ample stiffness for technical precision, while remaining comfortable and the nylon rock plate provides protection. The Mission LT’s high-performance BlackLabel-Mountain rubber is super sticky, allowing you to grip through technical moves on 5th class terrain with ease, and the rubber toe protection gives the Mission LT added security. Multiple webbing loops give you plenty of tagging and stowing options when the approach ends and the hard climbing begins.


• EnduroKnit is a one piece breathable, durable knit upper
• BlackLabel-Mountain rubber is high performance sticky rubber
• Rubber toe protection
• Sock-like bootie fit
• Nylon rock plate for protection
• Tuned EVA midsole for stiffness and comfort
