The Khyber is a revolutionary hybrid combat boot that conquers mountainous areas as well as rough terrain. Once you wear this boot in the field, you will realize that it represents a significant step forward in tactical footwear.
These boots were designed by Belleville Shoe, a leading supplier of military footwear to the Department of Defense, in conjunction with the special forces community to provide a sturdy, rugged boot that gives excellent ground feel and mobility. The intent of the integrated deeply-serrated heel and toe aids the sole to provide a better feel for the terrain underfoot and can assist in braking & arresting slides as well as aiding in vertical climbing & crawling. While the VIBRAM "IBEX" outsole is for the rugged terrain, the TR-1 Load Bearing Orthotic insole ensures comfort while enduring such ground. The rappelling bars on the outsole extend the wear of the outsole, while the breathable combat lunar lining and heel & toe overlay design extends the overall Wear and Life of the boot.
Belleville has been making combat boots for Uncle Sam since World War I and is currently the largest boot supplier to the Department of Defense, but when they set out to design a new line of tactical combat boots (dubbed Tactical Research), they did not let tradition hold them back. They pioneered a novel approach that provides everything you need ? reliability, stability, and traction ? in a lightweight, comfortable boot that provides sure footing and an improved feel for the ground.
Why clunk around with an inch or two of rubber stuck to the bottom of your feet when you can glide through your area of operations?
