Footwear may be one of the more overlooked items of gear among shooters of all disciplines and experience levels. Whether a shooter spends his or her time in competition, at the range or in the field, footwear should always be a key consideration and tailored to the particular task at hand. The new Ultralight Side Zip Boot from Blackhawk is a great multi-purpose choice that’s also quick to take on and off courtesy of an easy-to-use YKK Coil Zipper on the boot’s side.
The boots feature a tough CORDURA upper as well as a durable and grippy Vibram outsole for extreme use. They also sport a long-lasting, water friendly PU midsole; a fully gusseted tongue; a Dri-Lex moisture-wicking inner lining; and an OrthoLite washable, antimicrobial custom-molded footbed.
I had the chance to test the Ultralight Side Zip Boot at an event in Montana and for several months afterward. The event involved a little bit of running and gunning as well as more general use, and through it all the boots performed admirably. They were supremely lightweight, comfortable and allowed for excellent maneuverability. Sweating was also never an is sue given the Dri-Lex inner lining and OrthoLite footbed.
The Ultralight Side Zip Boot is available now for $178.95. The boots come in either Black or Desert Tan and are available in a variety of sizes for men and women.
