Sneak Peek – LALO Tactical

LALO (pronounced lah-low) stands for Light Assault Lowviz Operator. This entirely new line of footwear is the brainchild of Navy SEAL Veteran Nathanael Roberti who was inspired by the memory of comrades lost in Operation Red Wings to provide purpose built footwear for the special operator. This video gives you a great introduction to what’s behind the brand and a few glimpses of what’s to come. Look for exclusive content from SSD soon featuring this new line of footwear.

    Hell yes!

  2. Given what is out there now I am anxious to see what they have that is new and different yet effective for the task(s). Are we talking about one do everything (except snow/altitude) boot? OTB?

    Creating a boot that is cabable of going from water to land and back again while carrying a load for extended periods is a tall order not to mention the slick surfaces that come with taking down ships and oil rigs? When do they hit the market?

  3. You've got to be kidding me says:

    It’s just a boot dude. A pair of kicks isn’t going to make you a better operator. A little to silly for me

    • SSD says:

      No, they won’t. But a crappy pair of boots can certainly lead to mission failure.

      By your standard, we should have stopped issuing new kit with loincloths and spears.

    We are crazy to get them in Costa Rica!

    DO NOT BUY ANTHING FROM THIS COMPANY. The guy in this video is claiming to be a former SEAL with 2 platoons under his belt. In reality, he only did one platoon, and got a general discharge for poor conduct. After that, he became an instructor at Don Shipley’s “Extreme SEAL Experience” in Chesapeake, Virginia. After that, he stole Don Shipley’s idea and started Navy SEAL Academy (, which hasn’t been very successful.

    He is a liar and a fraud. Call 757-572-7203 if you want Senior Chief Shipley to tell you the whole story.

      Who appointed you the spokesman for Don. If Don has a complaint about Lalo, let Don ring that bell. Lalo and Don patched that issue up long ago. Regardless, I am not sure what a disagreement that happened years ago has to do with a shoe manufactured today. Mind your own business and you have a gripe, reach out to Lalo, instead of posting crap on a website.
