Form The design of the 5.11 Taclite 8in. Side Zip Boot, Black (12022-019) is both modern and traditional. 5.11 use the traditional lace to toe construction, but have strategically placed multiple panels of leather, mesh and nylon to speed up the appearance and increase the functionality. The profile of the boots are rugged, fast and supportive while the toe down looks traditional and no nonsense.
Function The Taclite boot has a combination of full grain leather, 1200D Cordura nylon and breathable air mesh. Behind the scenes the Taclite boot enhances the breathability with the use of perforated EVA foam padding instead of the traditional basic foam backings. To further enhance the moisture management system, we use antibacterial and moisture wicking linings. This combination of materials will keep your feet comfortable and dry throughout your long shift.
The new comfort platform of the Taclite boot uses an Ortholite sockliner, composite shank and CMEVA midsole that work together to provide maximum cushioning, comfort and support for any possible situation. This cushioning system sits on top of our newly developed outsole. The outsole of the Taclite has deep flex grooves for great flexibility while the multi directional lugs provide a solid base and traction in all terrains. The fast rope control tread and defined heel brake help control your movements when you need it most.
The Taclite boots are ready to wear right out of the box with no break in time needed. The Zonal Lacing System and the multiple notch outs works well with the "sausage laces" to adjust and secure any shape foot. 5.11've also incorporated the new 5.11 Lace Station to keep your laces neat and secure. With the YKK side zipper simply lace the boot your 1st time and use the side zipper for easy access on and off from there on out. Imported.
