This Lightweight Nylon Mil-Spec Shoe Features Vibram Wraptech & DWR

Founded in 2012 by former FILA designer David Raysse, Los-Angeles-based Brandblack has made a name for itself with its eye-catching athletic and streetwear silhouettes. As innovative as they are stylish, each Brandblack shoe comes packed with tons of tech beneath an on-trend appearance. For their latest release, Brandblack took a decidedly tactical approach to a design they’re calling the ‘Mil-Spec LTD’.

The Mil-Spec LTD comes with closure provisions in spades. With a knit sock interior slipping on much like a bootie and a toggle closure to cinch things down, this shoe ensures a consistent, comfortable fit in every step. Top it off with a lightweight nylon strap for added security and you better believe the Mil-Spec LTD delivers a lockdown unlike any other shoe. And when it comes to ruggedization, Brandblack has spared no expense with the Mil-Spec LTD. In addition to a DWR coating for water repellency, it also wears Vibram’s all-new Lite-base Wraptech technology for improved grip and durability. Reinforced with suede in the toe and eyerow, the Mil-Spec LTD makes for a military-inspired shoe ready to rip it up on the street. You can buy them on Brandblack’s website for $248.
