  • For those who like minimalist shoes...



    These look amazing. I wonder how they will hold up in the real world. Apparently these are AR-670-1 compliant.

    I'd post a link, but that's a no-no.

    Pretty cool until something rips right through your sole.

      If you're just looking to move quickly with a heavy ruck on pavement or hard-packed sand/gravel these may work well. If you're climbing up and down rocky slopes they might not be the best bet.

        That is questionable.

          Well, I've done practice rucks (35-40 lbs) in Minimalist shoes and it didnt hurt any more than wearing my Bellville's. This was on concrete tho.

            They look similar to Nikes. I did the SF ruck with an overweight pack (68 lbs at the finish) in 2:33 (standard is 3:00) wearing my Nikes.

              When is DARPA going to make an affordable jet pack?

                Soon I hope. I've always aspired to be the rocketeer.

                I just looked at the price. $150...that seems steep for some unproven boots.

                  They look like a replica of the Nike boots, which are $100
