These are the Oakley – Flak Jacket Boots in Bark (Brown). These are in the Oakley’s Tactical Field Gear line which is different from Oakley’s S.I. (Standard Issue) Military Line.
I decided on getting the Flak Jackets since I was also looking at the Merrel Sawtooth Boots, for general hiking applications. The Flak Jackets are a nice consumer hybrid of the Oakley S.I. line. Oakley’s propganda as follows:
Most boots are fine for weekend warriors. When we designed FLAK JACKET?, we utilized innovations developed specifically for the armed forces. Tactical-to-practical includes breathable waterproofing and resilient shock absorption in a lightweight athletic design. FLAK JACKET? is aggressive technology in civilian trim that travels well in casual territory.
- Premium full-grain leathers and Nubuck? for maximum comfort, support and breathability
- Waterproof/breathable eVENT? liner for superior weather resistance and climate control
- High NBS rubber outsole with multi-directional tread geometry for optimal traction on all surfaces, plus resilient shock absorption of EVA midsole
- 2 year limited warranty on waterproofing
