“Great comfortable boots!”

“These Propper boots are really nice. I used to wear another brand boot without side zippers and they were always a pain to put on and take off. These are all day, on the range, off the range, slogging in the rain comfortable boots. I have trudged through some pretty deep puddles and my feet stayed surprisingly dry. They look great and feel even better.”

Tactical Boots FAQs

What is the difference between tactical and combat boots?

Traditional combat boots were used by soldiers in the military and were designed for marching and rucking while supporting all the gear a soldier wears. This required the boot to have superior rigidity and shock absorption but with the tradeoff that they frequently were heavy, stiff and uncomfortable. Tactical boots have modernized the traditional combat boot concept by using lighter weight, flexible materials to provide all day comfort at rest and in motion. Innovations in the black boot market like memory foam, EVA midsoles, and comfort cell technology such as in Propper’s Duralight Tactical shoes reduce weight while improving comfort over the classic combat boot. Many of these innovative materials are now making their way into military boots. 

What makes a tactical boot tactical?

Tactical boots meet the needs of Law Enforcementand Military tactical personnel through focused and specialized engineering. A tactical boot combines both uncompromising durability and support over the course of a long tough lifespan in harsh environments. Commonly chosen for Law Enforcement Tactical Teams are black tactical boots with full or split grain leather polishable toes and frequently feature a side zip to ease donning and doffing like that is found in the Propper 6” and 8” Tactical Duty line of boots. The best tactical boots will provide superior comfort and breathability, with quality insole materials like Memory Foam and anti-microbial linings, cutting edge EVA midsole compositions for shock absorption, and rubber outsoles that are quiet and slip resistant. 

Can I hike in tactical boots?

Yes, tactical boots can be great for hiking. Tactical boots provide a high level of durability even in the roughest environments. The best hiking options when considering men’s or women’s tactical boots will often use waterproof uppers with quality materials used in the insole, midsole, and outsole. Waterproof, breathable materials like the Hydroguard waterproof, breathable membrane used in the Propper Series 100 Waterproof 8” Coyote Boot will keep your feet dry and comfortable while the insole, midsole, and outsole materials will ensure cushioning and support throughout the hike. Traction is also key when hiking and tactical boots are designed with high grip rubber outsoles for any surface with lugs that shed loose soil and mud buildup easily.
