AfterSHOT: Reebok Zigkick Tactical Boots

Much like Nike and Adidas, Reebok also has a line of boots for Military and Law Enforcement: the Reebok ZigKick Tactical Boots. They're also introducing something called the KRIOS. Here's a little about what they've been up to.

It's interesting to see sneaker technology finding its way into military boots.

Warson Brands, official licensee of Reebok tactical footwear, introduces the new Reebok ZigKick Tactical line of 8-inch and 6-inch boots. Built to meet the extreme demands of law enforcement professionals, the new Reebok ZigKick Tactical line is engineered for performance, comfort, and durability. Reebok’s ZigTech, an elite fitness technology developed by Reebok fitness experts, is a unique zigzag foam midsole designed to flex like an athletic shoe, absorb heel shock, and provide energy return under the most punishing conditions.

While the next one was released at last year's SHOT its still worth checking out.This seems like a boot that keeps you dry from inside and out

Warson Brands, manufacturers of quality military and tactical footwear and exclusive licensee for Reebok military and tactical boots, and W. L. Gore & Associates, inventor of GORE-TEX® fabric, recently announced a new line of waterproof military and tactical footwear for hot weather, the Reebok KRIOS Series.

Made in the U.S.A. and scheduled to hit stores in spring 2016, the new Reebok KRIOS is the only tactical boot that keeps feet cool and comfortable in hot environments and dry in wet conditions.

“This is a new GORE-TEX® footwear technology from Gore,” says Bill Candy, Product Manager at Gore. “GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Technology provides unrivaled breathability in hot weather and has been proven in lab tests to keep feet cool and comfortable in hot weather.”

“We’ve been collaborating for years with Gore to develop and test this product,” says John Duvic, Warson Brands Corporate VP of Product Development. “Our goal was to construct a waterproof, lightweight boot that is comfortable in hot conditions and strong enough for heavy duty use; the Reebok KRIOS achieves that goal.”

Fused protective layers reduce bulk, minimize absorption, and dry quickly, preventing added weight in wet conditions. The KRIOS’S construction results in a boot that absorbs 90% less water when compared to non-waterproof boots.

The KRIOS is built to thrive under the harshest conditions demanded by military and tactical duty professionals. The MeraMAX® outsole provides four times the abrasion resistance of rubber. This, plus a rugged nylon and leather outer shell, and GORE-TEX® exoskeleton, means every layer of the KRIOS is built to last.

The new Reebok KRIOS Series is available in an 8-inch mil-spec boot in desert tan, black, sage green, and coyote. Features include a speed lacing system and electrical hazard protection.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
