The Nike Special Field Boot: Built for high-speed responders
A modern, athletic boot designed for first responders, the Nike Special Field Men's Boot was engineered to the specifications of world-class heroes, from military professionals to rescue and law personnel. The result: the lightest, fastest-drying, highest-mobility performance boot Nike has ever made.
- Quick-drying synthetic leather overlays for durability and support
- Multiple ventilation zones that allow the boot to breathe and drain quickly
- Genuine leather footbed for durability, flexibility and comfort
- Nike Free-inspired outsole, designed for traction and a natural range of motion
- Sticky rubber forefoot lugs for exceptional traction on all terrain
- Weight: 15.9 ounces (men's size 9)
First responders are athletes in every sense of the word, but their moves are infinitely more vital. To meet their intense physical demands, the Nike SFB was built with the latest athletic footwear technology. Parts of the forefoot are puncture- and laceration-resistant, while the midsole is super-cushioned and extra flexible, ensuring a smooth heel-to-toe transition. The directional-traction outsole features reverse edges and a slightly raised heel for better grip when walking and running downhill.
Synthetic leather overlays make the Nike SFB tough yet bendy, requiring no break-in period. It's comfortable right out of the box. The sturdy outer shell creates a snug fit, protects against scuffing, and helps keep water out, while the anatomical sockliner moves easily with the foot and adds support and cushioning. A special lock-lace system helps keep the foot in place and maintain a comfortable, customized fit during extended wear.
The Nike Special Field Boot is made for hot weather. Breathable, quick-drying fibers work to keep the foot comfortable in warm conditions, and sweat-wicking materials help the boot dry out fast.
During World War II, Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman served as a member of the 10th Mountain Division in Italy. Upon his return, he became the head track and field coach at his alma mater, the University of Oregon. It was there that he honed a gift for creating high-performance footwear for his athletes. This boot is a realization of both of Bowerman's worlds.
