BUILT FOR HIGH-SPEED RESPONDERS
A modern, athletic boot designed for first responders, the Nike Special Field Men's Boot was engineered to the specifications of world-class heroes, from military professionals to rescue and law enforcement personnel. The result: the lightest, fastest-drying, highest-mobility performance boot Nike has ever made.
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 directional-traction outsole features reverse edges and a slightly raised heel for better grip when walking and running downhill.
Synthetic leather overlays make the Nike SFB tough yet flexible, requiring no break-in period. It's comfortable right out of the box. The sturdy outer shell creates a snug fit, protects against scuffing, and helps keep water out, while the anatomical sockliner moves easily with the foot and adds support and cushioning. A special lock-lace system helps keep the foot in place and maintain a comfortable, customized fit during extended wear.
The Nike Special Field Boot is made for hot weather. Breathable, quick-drying fibers work to keep the foot comfortable in warm conditions, and sweat-wicking materials help the boot dry out fast.
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 love this boot. I'm in the military and this shoe is lightweight and very durable. It doesn't rub against the heel like most boots. Feels like you're wearing sneakers To work.
I'm 6 ft, 215 lbs LEO and former Military knuckle dragger with wide flat feet. I wear a 10.5 W in a military Jungle Boot, 11 in Adidas GSG9, and an 11.5 in Oakley SI Boot. Got the Nike in a 11, but shuda got a 11.5. The Boot is built like the jungle boots of old, comfy out of the box...but after a day of running and shooting at the range....started to feel real tight on the top of the foot. The sole is similar to the Nike Free trail shoes, real soft and not built for "humping" with a heavy pack. Built in line with as the Gen 1 Oakley assault boot as sole and cushoning with an approximate life span of 6 months of strenuous activity. All in all, good for running and gunning....not good for road marching. Hope this helps
I have mixed feelings about this boot, I did a urban ruck for 20 miles, dry and wet, this boot was perfect. It dried fast and I didn't get any blisters (I even had thin summer socks on).I also did some land navigation classes on fairly rough terrain... this boot was terrible. My feet were in a lot of pain. Rucking on loose or uneven terrain was unbearable, blisters on the achilies and sore feet were my lasting memories (I had thicker, hiking socks on).Conclusion: If you don't plan on doing anything but wearing this in an urban + warm weather environment... then it's great! Otherwise this is NOT an all around boot. Be prepared to purchase another boot for more rugged terrain.
I ran into a burning building to rescue orphan puppies. The boots worked wonderfully. 10/10 would save puppies again.
My 12 yr old son loves his first pair of Mens boots.
