Vibram boots provide police officers, military members and public safety professionals an extra level of stability while on their feet. And being sure-footed is crucial when you’re on duty. The last thing you want to do when you’re responding to a potentially life-threatening situation is worry about slipping.
Boots with Vibram soles provide unparalleled traction, support and comfort on difficult surfaces. Which makes sense, Vibram boots originated as hiking boots that could conquer any terrain in any condition, no matter how treacherous.
So it’s no wonder that Vibram combat boots and Vibram boots for police have become tactical footwear.
Today a variety of Vibram boots has customized soles for different activities and professions, such as:
- Vibram hiking boots built with a TC5+ rubber outsole for multi-terrain performance.
- Vibram combat boots with an aggressive 148 Kletterlift outsole for shock absorption and gripping action.
- Police duty boots featuring a Sierra FIRE & ICE™ outsole made of a special rubber compound to improve traction in icy conditions.
Vibram Tactical Boots
Law enforcement officers and first responders understand how demanding and unpredictable their line of work can be. That’s why it’s of the utmost importance for public safety professionals to have the proper duty gear to minimize discomfort and optimize performance. This can’t be truer when it comes to footwear.
A best-selling black Vibram boot many police officers turn to is the Thorogood Poromeric Academy Oxford. These police oxfords have a formal dress shoe appearance, but the functionality of a duty boot. These Vibram shoes come with high-gloss patent leather for effortless cleaning, an EVA outsole for oil- and slip-resistance, fiberglass shanks for durability, and a removable EVA footbed with polyurethane heel pad for added comfort.
The Thorogood Station 1 EMS/Wildland Boot has become popular among EMTs and other first responders thanks to its durability and versatility. Included with these EMS boots is an exclusive Vibram ATS (All Terrain Sole), Gore Crosstech lining, flame-/cut-resistant full-grain leather, and more.
Vibram Military Boots
Public safety professionals aren’t the only ones who rely on Vibram boots on the job. Military personnel also benefit from them as well, and for good reason.
The average US soldier carries at least 60 pounds of gear while traveling through some of the harshest environments. That weight can double if the mission is extended. For these reasons, soldiers depend on their boots with their lives. Combat boots tailored with a Vibram sole not only enhance a soldier's ability to perform but also ensure safe passage through even the toughest terrains.
For amphibious environments or wet climates, the Garmont T8 BIFIDA Boot (OCP Coyote) is favored for its traction and shock reduction. This boot features a Vibram Bifida rubber outsole, PU footbed and polyester webbing for superb ventilation/breathability, zero optical refraction hardware for operating in all environments including airborne, and more.
The Tactical Research Hot Weather Khyber 8” Boots excels in scorching temperatures. Built with an aggressive design, the Khyber boot integrates a lace-to-toe system, breathable combat lunar lining with a low-profile sole, and a 100% rubber IBEX outsole for rugged terrain. The Khyber boot is also AR670-1 compliant.
