Warrior West – Belleville Quick Reaction Force

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

This is a sneak peek of Belleville’s new Quick Reaction Force line under their foreign sourced, Tactical Research brand. There is some climbing shoe DNA in this line, with to-toe lacing and full rubber toes. The sole also has a fast rope instep. In addition to the more traditional Black, Coyote and Sage, there is a more low-viz two color Bark/Sand option, which I prefer.

Warrior Expo – Belleville / Tactical Research

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Belleville recently added a new boot to their Tactical Research line called the MINI-Mil Transition boot.


Last year, Tactical Research unveiled the MINI-Mil boot, inspired by popular minimalist running shoes. It only features a 2mm heel to to drop making it a very flat boot. FR folks who aren’t used to barefoot running, this was a bit too much so TR came up with this new model. The MINI-Mil Transition offers a 6mm heel to toe drop which feels more “natural” for those wearing traditional combat boots. It remains a lightweight boot at 15.5 oz per pair. However, whereas the MINI-Mil features an unlined upper, the Transition model incorporates Aero-Spacer breathable, hydrophilic mesh lining. Additionally, this 8″ high boot is AR 670-1 compliant. Offered in Tan and Coyote, full sizes 6-14 (R&W) and half-sizes 6.5-11.5 (R&W).

Maintainer Boot from Tactical Research

If you are in the Air Force and work around POL at all you know that the current green suede boots absorb like a sponge. Not only does it look bad, but it’s hazardous as well. While the Air Force has decided to adopt a smooth leather version, implementation has been slow.

If you are wearing Black boots to work, the new Maintainerâ„¢ from Belleville’s Tactical Research might just be for you. Not only does it feature full grain leather, it also has a composite safety toe which, is not only lighter weight that steel, it does not conduct heat or cold like steel toes. Additionally, and ever important for maintenance troops, the outsole is oil and slip resistant.

TR-1 High Performance Insole

Monday, July 6th, 2009

One of the things that makes the new line from Belleville offshoot Tactical Research so fantastic is the new TR-1 High Performance Insole. After the actual boot purchase, the second most expensive footwear related expense is for a quality insole. Unfortunately many companies skimp on a decent insole in order to save a few bucks but not Tactical Research.

In addition to Agion anti-bacterial lining, the insole features an extended arch support built upon a foundation of EVA. With most boots, you’ll probably get an EVA molded insole and it will somewhat resemble the shape of your foot. Tactical Research on the other hand goes one step further. They combine rubber and EVA to provide a combination of comfort and impact protection on the honeycombed forefoot. This design also permits are circulation around the foot. Additionally, there is a deep, contoured heel cup to help with stability.

The TR-1 Insole comes standard with all Tactical Research footwear.
