5.11 Tactical’s New Urban Boot Line


5.11 Tactical rolled out its new XPRT 2.0 Tactical Desert Urban Boot a few weeks ago at SHOT Show.

The XPRT 2.0 features waterproof, HELCOR leather overlays that surround an exterior crafted from lightweight rip-stop nylon. A waterproof, breathable inner membrane stops moisture but allows airflow. XPRT  has a padded, neoprene ankle collar for extra support, a full length BI-FIT insole board for traction and 5.11’s Kick Toe.

They are available in dark coyote, black or gunsmoke for $195. A storm gray version will be available this fall.

  1. they already have these for sale in the PX

  2. How comfortable and how well do they wear outside of an urban environment?

  3. I like the looks of this boot. Will definitely buy.

  4. still like the Tora Bora boot….more expensive, but more durable 5.11 puts out things ffor the tacticulture groupies!

  5. I would not spend 500 on a pair of boots unless I was an operator. %.11 makes a good boot I live by them spending 8 + hours a day on concrete.

  6. Are the issued boots so bad that we have to drop $195?

  7. What is the downside to just wearing issue boots, which are free? Back in the day, the only non-issue boot you were allowed to wear were cocaran jump boots.

  8. Look to be a nice pair. i have had a few 5.11 boots, all were great. can't wait to try them

  9. I had cocaran jumpers issued when I served. wish I could still get them.

  10. I will have to give them a try.

  11. Thats cool and all, but what about 670-1?

  12. these are nice boots. i wonder where i can get some!!

  13. I dont like it. Upper isnt tall enough in my opinion. looks barely over a mid high boot. not very tactical. only think i like are the fence climbing lugs. Too many logos lasered on nd formed into the sole.

  14. Why won't anyone comment on the issue boots and the price in PX on these boots?

    The rough and earthy looks are the real advantage of this 5.11 Tactical product. What a smart and burly design this one is to invest in!
