Former Navy SEAL Mike Noell was on a mission in Afghanistan when the strap on his issued backpack broke, falling onto a land mine. Fortunately, it did not detonate and he made it out alive. Still, the experience stuck with Noell and in 1993, he founded Blackhawk with the ultimate goal of creating no-fail gear for military and tactical professionals. The brand's background is a large part of why every piece of clothing, equipment and footwear has to meet meticulous standards before it's ever released. Military personnel and first responders need gear they can trust, which is why they choose Blackhawk time and time again.

Love the boots
Reviewer: John N | Stillwater
After a hip replacement at the VA resulted in some nerve damage I needed the support of a good boot to counter the loss of control in my foot. I was also looking for a boot that could handle me being on my feet all day, every day. For just a few dollars more that a good pair of tennis shoes these boost have rose to the challenge. I have a pair of the Black Ops and a pair of the Warrior Dessert ops. They are soft, pliable, comfortable and strong. They have already out lived any pair of New Balance Cross Trainers I have ever had. I will be warring these boots for a long time to come.
