Engineered from the ground up to be lightweight, quick-drying, and low-absorbing, Bates® Recondo Boots represent the next generation of military-grade footwear for hot and humid missions. They feature Wolverine Warrior LeatherTM and MultiCam® ripstop nylon uppers that are lightweight yet rugged enough for demanding Special Forces use. They won't cook your feet in high temperatures, but they can stand up to sharp rocks and tree bark.
Underfoot, Vibram® Mutant solid rubber outsoles keep you upright and moving forward thanks to deeper, more aggressive lugs and multi-directional leading edges that enhance slip resistance on mud and slick surfaces. And if your next patrol takes you through the occasional creek, the screen vents and drainage holes help them dry quickly. Bottom line: the Recondo is a classic jungle boot, but American-made to the highest standard with modern materials and components.
