Word has it some SEALs and other operators prefer civvies shoes and hiking boots to their regular duty footwear, favoring them because they tend to dry quicker and get less waterlogged. Check out this shot of a SEAL on a VBSS op wearing Converse.
We’ve got nothing against good old-fashioned chucks, but it’s safe to say our boys deserve a shoe designed specifically for their mission. That’s where LALO Tactical shoes comes in. LALO Tactical is the designer of the innovative new Shadow boot and BUD/s Tactical Athletic line. Tailor made for the toughest environments, and boasting unique features such as a notch for securing fins, and cleats on the underarch for fast roping, this is a boot that’ll make you rethink the importance of mission-ready footwear. Weighing in at a lightweight 1 pound, 3.8 ounces, the LALO Tactical Shadow is built of breathable, anti-microbial and hydrophobic material that keeps the water from soaking up. The sole is quiet and slip resistant, giving you an edge when the slightest sound might give you away, and the boot's structure inherently promotes a smooth footfall, letting you move more efficiently, and distributing weight more evenly than standard boots.
Designed and built right here in the USA, these boots are rapidly spreading around not just American units, but to global forces as well. Many Israeli, South Korean, and Japanese fighters have all noticed LALO’s unique and functional approach to combat footwear. And LALO’s just getting started. Expect to see more styles here on GovX as LALO continues to challenge the conventions of tactical footwear.
