Patriot Tactical is the most expensive company out there selling this boot. Look some where else, everyone else selling the boot is cheaper and has free shipping too.
The Nike SFB Leather boot is the closest thing to a running or training shoe you can get in a functional work boot. They are extremely lightweight but maintain solid durability. When I first put the boots on straight out of the box, they were extremely comfortable and fit true to size. It took me about a week for the boots to feel completely broken in and formed to my feet. In rain or any point during training where my boots had gotten wet, it took little time for them to dry and not be water logged. The design of the material is extremely breathable and easily the best-ventilated and most cool warm weather shoe I’ve used. The tread on the bottom of the boot is extremely durable and great for traction. One of the best features about this boot is that it’s competitively priced compared to other top boot companies on the market. These boots are worth every penny I spent on them!
Some downfalls are that these boots aren’t great in cold weather. Their breathability allows for a lot of airflow, which is not helpful in below freezing temperatures. Another shortcoming is the fact that the synthetic leather option is not AR 670-1 approved. The newer boots use the authorized chow hide leather, which is compliant with regulations. I suggest that would be a better purchase.
These boots have been excellent in every competition and class I’ve participated in including ruck marches, obstacle courses, land navigation, and everything in between. After one particular 12-mile ruck march on fairly rough terrain, I had no blisters on my feet and my knees felt great. I’ve had these boots for three years and they are finally starting to fall apart after getting me through a lot of miles. The Nike SFB Boots are great; I highly recommend them to any active person or member of the United States Armed Forces.
(scale: 1= worst, 10=best)
- Color saturation on material (including suede) 10/10
- Weight of boot (10/10)
- Lacing system (550 cord type material) 8/10; only gave it 8/10 because although the boot is easy to cinch the very good laces, the eyelets are fairly large and it’s a little more difficult to keep even tension from top to bottom)
- Sole design (10/10)
- Sole material (10/10) based on current wear, the material seems to wear pretty evenly across multiple surfaces with no single portion wearing down faster than others after 2 months of use.
- Toe box design (7/10); only gave 6/10 because although this style fits my foot perfectly, I do not have a thick foot. Any wearer with what would be considered a “thick” foot, may have problems with pinching near the first bottom eyelet.
- Fits like an athletic shoe (10/10)
- Good laces (10/10)
- Upper material doesn’t seem to be made to stand up to a lot of abuse (6/10)
- Seam for heel cup stitching is about ½” lower than other boots, which may cause rubbing problems for some wearers. (7/10)
- Runs ½ size small
- Not available in safety toe
- Cushioning (6/10); not the most cushioned boot I’ve ever worn, in fact, it feels pretty flat. Similar to Rocky military boot footbed versus Belleville type boot footbed – definitely not a NIKE air sole.
