Nike SFB Tactical Boots


Looking to innovate and push the envelope for all aspects of athletics and physical activities that require the utmost in performance, Nike unveil their SFB. The project comes to fruition after four years of work. Inspired by Nike founder and Oregon Track & Field Coach Bill Bowerman’s time in the 10th Mountain Division of the US Army, the Innovation Kitchen on the guidance of Tobie Hatfield set out to honor their founding father. Goals of building a lighter, more breathable but still protective piece of footwear became the focus. This technical marvel has resulted in technologies such as Natural Motion Cushioning unit for improved support and speed as well as agile performance. For great grip, Sticky Rubber forefoot lugs are strategically mapped out for the necessary agility and traction in uncertain terrain. With its armed forces goal, the boot also comes complete with a “puncture and laceration resistant thermoplastic forefoot shield and genuine leather with Kevlar sheath”. All in all the boot also boasts the ability to be considered one of the lightest and fastest drying boots of its kind on the planet.
