Patagonia x Danner River Salt Wading Boots Now Available

Friday, March 29th, 2019

We have you a sneak peek of these Made in USA boots by Danner for Patagonia, during Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 18. And now, right on time, they’re available.

They are made from full-grain leather combined with 1000D nylon and a Vibram Megagrip sole. The leather is treated with a PFC-free saline solution tanning process for improved resistance to breakdown, even in salt water.

Since there are designed to be worn on both land and in water, there are perforated drains on both sides of the boot upper which is coincidentally free from unnecessary foams and backers.

In the photo, you can also see the Aluminum Bar sole model. In all, there are four versions, including felt and sticky rubber sole variants.

The color is Feather Grey. Sizes 5-14.

IWA 19 – Winter Overboot by 5.45 Design

Friday, March 8th, 2019

5.45 Design is a Russian company specializing in soldier systems. Not only do they manufacture clothing, helmets and armor, they also make small arms components. Everything I looked at was made in Russia from brand name materials and not only exhibited high quality, but were also well thought out.

At IWA they concentrated on clothing and helmets, but I wanted to share something that isn’t readily available from other manufacturers; their winter overboot. Insulated with Primaloft, it will take a wearer in a standard boot down to -10 deg C.

The step-in design extends up to the knee.

It features two shock cords at the ankle and one at the top for fit adjustment.

A zipper at the rear makes donning and doffing a simple affair.

On the sole is non slip material.

Look for it very soon in Black, Coyote and MultiCam in both this 8″ height as well as a 5″ upper.

Original SWAT – Alpha Series – Where Tactical Meets Poweful

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

MORRISTOWN, TN – Original Footwear, the leading value-minded tactical footwear manufacturer, is proud to deliver designed and engineered for the next generation elite operators and service professionals – the Alpha Series.

Alpha Fury boots are not your typical line of tactical boots. These boots are equipped with a lightweight, dual density EVA midsole with shock absorption zone for fatigue control.

With the comfort and flexibility of an athletic shoe, the boot still maintains the tried and true reliability and functionality of a diligent tactical boot. Another key element of the Alpha series is our custom molded thermoplastic heel counter and toe box. This helps provide immediate ease and protection. This offers 3 different styles: The Alpha Fury 6-inch, The Alpha Fury 8-inch, and the Alpha Fury 8-inch side zip.

“We are so thrilled to be offering a new series like none before,” said Kevin Cole, Original S.W.A.T. CEO and product developer. “No competing product comes close in terms of features, agility and price. The Alpha boots are built for comfort and performance first. We removed the stitch construction in the forefoot to give you one of the lightest boots on the market while still retaining our known tactical boot protection.
