Oakley worked hard to create a comfortable and lightweight boot that could be worn for long periods of time, and it paid off with the Oakley Elite Assault Boot. Great for active duty or outdoor adventuring, these boots are AR670-1 and AFI 36-2903 compliant, durable, and designed to provide quality ventilated support.
The construction of the Oakley Elite Assault Boot provides maximum durability while maintaining a lighter weight. The Vibram Litebase technology reduces the thickness of the sole without compromising durability and reduces weight while maintaining the traditional characteristics of a military boot. Maintain a full range of motion and mobility while marching or hiking long distances, and like the Oakley SI Light Assault Boot, the Elite is precision-engineered – from the sole to its molded EVA insert – to transition across variable terrains. They include a breathable 8” Cordura upper that is abrasive resistant, paired with the Vibram SPE Midsole specifically crafted to provide Oakley’s signature cushioning while giving you support and protection from all types of terrain. Combined with Oakley’s Lace-Lock system, it’s now possible to achieve comfort and durability for long periods of time.
This military boot packs a lot of protection and is perfect for anyone who wants a lighter boot at a fair price – USPatriot.com lists the boot for an incredible price of $165 – this is the best we could find anywhere online. Oakley has a long term partnership with US Patriot to serve their customers with the gear needed from head to toe.
