Under Armour Field Ops GTX Boot

Aug 29, 2017

We’ll be honest. At the beginning of last year, there is no way we would’ve said that Under Armour would be among our top 5 when it came to boots. Yet, over time, the brand has consistently turned out great offerings like their new UA Field Ops GORE-TEX.

Essentially a moc-toe shoe combined with a hunting-boot silhouette, this rugged hiker is made with a combination of a dense full-grain leather and breathable nylon paneling. The thick material along the toe, fore-foot, and mid-foot areas act as a first defense against moisture, while an extra layer of GORE-TEX underneath it creates a watertight seal. The textured nylon panel along the ankle of the boot allows for more breathability and helps resist abrasion from brush and rocks. To add a degree of stability and grip, the Maryland-based sports apparel brand added in a Wishbone TPU plate, and worked with Vibram to develop a super high traction outsole. Can you really ask for more?
