The full collection covers hardened military boots to covert and comfortable tactical shoes.

All their boots have been meticulously tested by the US elite forces and are continually being improved upon thanks to feedback from operators in the field.
5.11 Boots History
5.11 Tactical Equipment started as a line of clothing designed by mountaineer Royal Robbins who, on reaching the top of a climb in Yosemite California, noticed that the trousers he was wearing were not fit for purpose. He made the decision there and then to design something more durable and with increased functionality. He already owned a boot and clothing company and began manufacturing trousers under the name “5.11” that already had a trademarked tactical strap and slash pocket design in 1968.
The proprietary Shock Mitigation System, makes the 5.11 tactical and uniform boots highly mobile and surprisingly comfortable, increasing the wearer’s focus and maximising their ability to respond effectively. The tactical boot range is also ideally suited to hiking, hunting, and camping and their low profile tactical footwear is perfect for both casual and CCW wear.
