These TAD Boots Were Designed For Tactical Proficiency On Any Adventure

Since its founding in 2010, San Francisco’s Triple Aught Design has established itself as one of the premier purveyors of mission-capable military-inspired goods. From hard-wearing writing implements to specially-engineered outwear, the brand’s expertise seems to know no bounds.

With the launch of its ‘Ghostwing TRS Mid-Top’ boot, TAD is taking its tactical proficiency to footwear for the first time ever — and boy have they delivered. Designed to combine the lightweight performance of an approach shoe with the all-day comfort of a court sneaker, they feature a 200D ripstop nylon upper with a welded PU-reinforcement for added support. Elsewhere, you’ll find a dropped heel collar for maximum agility, an open-cell PU footbed for breathability, as well as a custom-developed foam tongue for a secure-yet-unobtrusive fit. Riding on a Vibram Megagrip outsole, it even comes with an anti-clog lug profile to easily shed dirt and mud. They’re available in black, ‘Chimera,’ ‘Combat,’ and ‘Gunship’ — each with stealthy non-reflective finishes. You can pre-order them now for $175.

Purchase: $175+
