Introducing the first "minimalist" or "barefoot alternative" combat boot!!! Originally started by Vibram's Fivefingers, this type of footwear enables your natural biomechanics when walking or running and allows you to feel the terrain. The Tactical Research TR102 MiniMil Ultra Light Desert Tan Boot features a 5mm drop between the heel and toe for transmitting maximum "ground feel", as opposed to the typical 20mm for combat boots. The TR102 is ultra-lightweight weighing less than 2lbs per pair and features 100% cowhide and nylon Cordura construction. The sole is manufactured by Vibram, the pioneers in minimalist footwear and experts in footwear sole systems.
*** NOTE: Belleville boots are about ½ to 1 full size larger in fit than your normal shoe size depending on the type of boot you choose (hot weather vs. waterproof/insulated). In many cases, we have found our hot weather boots run about 1 size larger than your normal shoe size; however, boots containing a GORE-TEX® bootie may require only ½ size smaller than your normal size for a proper fit.
*** Tactical Research Mini-Mil Boot sizes run about ½ smaller than your normal running shoe size. This means if you wear a size 10 running shoe, consider trying a size 10.5.
