5.11 8" Skyweight RapidDry

The ultra-durable 8" Skyweight RapidDry is one of 5.11's most lightweight designs, but still provides the critical protection and support essential to a good tactical boot. The rugged rubber outsole is engineered to deliver superior grip on any terrain and features an arch lug pattern for maximum traction on rocky, uneven surfaces. The CVEMA midsole offers optimal arch support and shock absorption for softer landings and a lighter stride, while the removable OrthoLite insole delivers unmatched comfort for long days on the job. The drain vents along the lateral side of the boot expel excess heat to prevent overheating and maintain a cool, dry interior, while the nylon shank provides torsional rigidity and additional arch support. There is a rear heel brake to promote proper balance and broad forefoot design to reduce the risk of heel and ankle injury when performing strenuous actions. For a reliable and versatile boot that will not let you down, 5.11 delivers.

      Good fit and look sharp. Even the laces are high quality. Even had wide fit. Very satisfied

    • Great customer service, pretty good boots.
      Reviewer: Doc McC

      Another great customer service experience from TG. Probably will not buy boots anywhere else again. So these boots are without a doubt the smallest, most narrow boots I've ever bought. Seriously, these things make Danners look like snow shoes. Bought half size up and wide and they barely fit BUT the color is exactly what I wanted, grip is insane and overall quality is very high. Think these will work out pretty well.

      The boot does run a little bit small, so order up a size. I've had two foot surgeries with pins, plates and screws. The comfort of this boot is second to none. It's like walking in your favorite running shoes. I'm and instructor and im on my feet from 0830 to 1700 plus hrs every day. And my feet have not been an issue. If you purchase a pair of these boots you will walk away a true winner. You will be more than satisfied!

      I love 5.11, they are based out of Cali, not too far from me. I have been looking for the lightest, yet most durable boot I could find I tried these on and instantly fell in love, they are lighter than my running shoe and fit almost perfectly, yet as I wore them longer the glamour started to fade. I do not have perfect feet, my arches are weak Andy left is bigger than my right. I noticed that these boots DO NOT have strong arch and ankle support, they were floppy on the sides and ankle area especially on my right side. I spent a day in these and swapped them out for the Atacs, which are too heavy for my taste but are STELLAR boots. I wish upon a star that 5.11 would tweak this boo, with former foot support and ( I don't like the sole, it is too thin and has weak traction that slipped around on simple incline trails) I would also like to have more af an elevated heel ( like a traditional boot) I don't think all of these reviews are real because this boot falls short of where it should be, especially for 140 bucks. If they made this shoe in the image of the Nike free running shoe, I would be their space for life, but as of now, sadly underwhelmed, still has potential though

      Well made, fast drying as stated, will get a lot of use out of them. I would definitely recommend on purchasing. Fits well on the foot and has such a light weight feel. Overall awesome boot. The only thing that didn't catch my eye was the long ship time... Hence four stars.

    • Not Right For Me
      Reviewer: Bill Cunningham

      2/9/2016

      Am returning these boots. They were a bit too big, but a half size smaller would have been too small. Walked about 1/4 mile, was already getting blisters due to the stiff ribbing inside. Nothing personal, they just did not fit my feet. Others may find the fit perfect.

      Reviewer: Michael Beck

      12/25/2015

      This boot is the best hi-top tactical athletic performance foot wear I've ever purchased. Right out of the box, they were as comfortable as my running shoes, light weight, great ankle support and no new boot hot spots. I did order the boot a half size bigger which was a good call, since these fit perfect. I will be ordering another pair soon. Hope this helps.

      awesome boots! I work in construction and mobility and durability are a must and I find both attributes in these boots! they are ultra light weight, and have a hard sole for Rocky dirt traction. I would buy them again, also has a great price. 4 stars due to lack of comfort.

      I've got running shoes that weigh more and aren't as comfortable as these. Already feel broken in right out of the box. Great ankle support. Semi aggressive sole so you're not having to lug around mud on the bottoms.

      The lights most comfortable boots I've ever warn. I wear them all day and my feet don't hurt. The inside sole feels like a mattress and the over all weight of the boot makes me think I'm wearing running shoes with the stability and tread of a boot. Definitely worth the price

    • 5.11 Lightweight Tact Boot
      Reviewer: Blade

      4/16/2015

      Like the color and feel of this particular style of tactical boot. very lightweight. Only issue I had was it took about a week to break in due to different material composite in toe area. I had to put this boot thru a little basic training workout . I've worn a size 9 med all thru out my career, but have found out over time boot size fabrication has changed. A half size up from norm would be recommended. Satisfied.
