Winter’s bone-chilling throes are right around the corner, and Nike is preparing for the inclement conditions ahead with a new SFB Field 2 8” Tactical Boot that’s equipped with GORE-TEX. The latest silhouette to join Nike’s GORE-TEX offerings — which already consist of the the Air Force 1 Low and High, plus new styles like the React Type GTX and Air Max 720 Horizon — the SFB Field 2 offers a sky-high eight-inch cut and an ultra-rugged construction, crafted to withstand winter’s punishing weather.

Presenting a military-style aesthetic with its all black colorway, the boot uses GORE-TEX fabric as its base layer and adds extra durability with tumbled leather overlays. The only deviation from the upper’s stark stylings comes via the gold text-equipped tag that’s present directly under the top of the towering collar. The lacing system calls on standard eyestays and hook closures to ensure a secure fit, while a heel tab assists with easy on/off. Branding is kept to a minimum, with the upper presenting a single debossed Swoosh on the lateral midfoot.

Moving to the lower half, the midsole uses Trail Frame technology, a Nike ACG innovation that ensures support and stability. The outsole’s toothed traction pattern offers all-terrain grip, and an internal rock shield helps prevent punctures caused by missteps.

It seems as if Nike has been releasing fewer core boot models in 2019 than years past, but between silhouettes like this and the ACG Terra Zaherra, there’s still plenty of options for urban hikers the world over. The SFB Field 2 8” GORE-TEX Tactical Boot is available now at Nike.com with a retail price of $170 USD.

Elsewhere in the world of the Swoosh, the Air Max 90 “Volt” is returning in all of its OG glory to celebrate the influential silhouette’s 30th anniversary.
