Have you ever thought to yourself why are my boots so damn warm or in the extreme case wake up to a layer of salt formed on your boots because of the sweat from the day before. Well Bates has their answer for you. This answer comes in the C3 line. The boot does this by having an insole with holes in it and vents at the side of the outsole.
From all United States airmen I have had the chance of speaking to they have all say the same thing. The issue boots aren’t comfortable. Not only this but they always seem to be restructuring there uniform requirements so who knows if a few months down the road if sage will be the official boot color. Thankfully these come in both tan and sage.
Altama sent me these boots and I have been struggling with writing this review. On one hand I see a lot of great features, and the build quality is superb. However they have a few shortfalls one is weight and the other is the angle the foot bed slopes downward. More on these later.
The Blackhawk Warrior Wear Black Ops Boot (That’s a mouthful to say) is a waterproof breathable boot manufactured by Blackhawk. The boots have a running shoe feel to them that require little to no break in time. The Black ops boots are not your grandfathers boots and do not have any discomfort out of the box.
