Adding to its Special Field System collection which honors those who defend and protect, Nike recently crafted the SFP Jungle WP Tactical Boot. Incorporating elements of field-ready tactical gear and field-inspired wear, the new footwear option draws from the M-1966 jungle boots worn by the U.S. Army Air 1st Cavalry Division during the Vietnam War.
The high-cut footwear option features an upper constructed of rugged khaki textile and black synthetic leather panels. The dynamic lines of the shoe are accented by the weaving lacing system that ensures a secure fit. Decorative elements comes in the form of U.S. Military Academy at West Point markings on the tongue, 1st Calvary saber motifs at the heel and rear, U.S. Army Air Cavalry collar tags and “120 Dec 14 19” graphics on the inside of the boot. Elevating the boot is a 0.68 hard rubber sole unit complete with an aggressive traction pattern designed to provide grip and durability.
Priced at $200 USD, Nike’s SFB Jungle WP “Black/Medium Olive” is available now on Nike’s webstore and select retailers.
