Many of you noticed that Deadpool, the not-quite-movie-hero, was wearing our Skyweight Boots.
If you’re among those wanting more information about these highly functional and extremely comfortable boots, here are the details from an excerpt from the recent RECOIL magazine 5.11 Loadout.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were shoes that bridged the gap between training and fieldwork? Shoes that were light enough to run exercises, but tough enough to withstand the punishment they’ll actually get when put through the paces in the real world? Thankfully 5.11 heard this gripe and acted on it, combining the durability and support that people expect for on-the-job use as well as the light, comfortable feel of those sneakers you throw on at the gym or when training in your downtime.
Skyweight Boots tread lightly, meaning you’ll be amazed by how unrestricted a boot can feel, allowing you a greater degree of quick movement. However, don’t let that make you think that 5.11 skimped on the features that’ll hold up in the most austere conditions. All Skyweight Boots are nonmetallic construction to keep them light. They sit on a full rubber outsole with fence-climbing lugs, rope and ladder mid-foot lugs, and multiple flex zones for maximum agility and comfort.
The platform has an 8mm heel-to-toe offset for an accelerated stance, along with a composite shank, heel brake, Ortholite® insole, and CMEVA midsole. With side-zip, waterproof, and rapid drain-and-dry options available, you’re sure to find the right match for your specific needs. Fully polishable black versions are available to be uniform compliant and fat “sausage laces” help these cool kicks stay tied. So, if the shoe fits, beat the hell out of it.
