BUILT FOR THE TACTICAL ATHLETE
A modern, athletic boot designed for first responders, the Nike SFB Field 8" Men's Boot features a breathable canvas and durable synthetic upper with a dynamic lacing system for ultra-lightweight comfort and lockdown. The outsole is equipped with an aggressive traction pattern and internal rock shield for multi-surface grip and puncture protection.
First responders are athletes in every sense of the word, but their moves are infinitely more vital. To meet their intense physical demands, the Nike SFB was built with the latest athletic footwear technology. Parts of the forefoot are puncture- and laceration-resistant, while the midsole is super-cushioned and extra flexible, ensuring a smooth heel-to-toe transition. The rubber outsole features reverse edges and a slightly raised heel for better grip when walking and running downhill.
A dynamic lacing system helps keep the foot in place and maintains a comfortable, customized fit during extended wear.
The Nike Special Field Boot is made with breathable, quick-drying fibers to keep the foot comfortable in warm conditions.
Design OriginsDuring World War II, Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman served as a member of the 10th Mountain Division in Italy. Upon his return, he became the head track and field coach at his alma mater, the University of Oregon. It was there that he honed a gift for creating high-performance footwear for his athletes. This boot is a realization of both of Bowerman's worlds.
I wanted to love the original SFB, however the toe box was way too tight, and every pair I saw looked like it was wearing down way too fast.<br />I love the upgrades made to the SFB Field. The pull tab on the back makes all the difference for putting the boot on. and the fit has been fixed from the original. I did not find that I needed any larger size than normal.<br />There are minor fixes that need to be made. The stock insole is not great at all, and the padding is in the wrong spots, making the foot fit funny if you keep them in.<br />Lastly, Nike should look into adding a touch more padding at the top of the boot around the mouth. just a bit of softer material there would make these a perfect 10!<br />Still well worth the buy, especially if you are on your feet a lot around post/base.
Excellent comfort, durability, and fit. I'd recommend to all military service members.
Boots are heavier and less comfortable than the previous model.
