Under Armour Alegent

Under Armour's lightweight, hard-working Alegent is a functional tactical boot that operates on the same Spine chassis found in Under Armour's high-performance athletic shoes. Therefore, this boot fits like a trainer, but offers the protection, support and aggressive tread of a heavy-duty tactical boot. The OrthoLite liner provides maximum comfort, whether running all day or standing on your feet, and Under Armour anti-odor technology prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria within the boot. There are medial side vents that pump out excess heat to prevent overheating for extended periods of use, creating a breathable, ventilated interior. The rugged poly/nylon construction can handle any terrain in any climate, making this the ideal all-purpose boot for your next mission.

How to Measure:
Under Armour starts with the true foot, which means they measure from heel to toe. That measurement (in centimeters) is then translated into their standard sizes. To find your foot measurement closely trace your entire foot onto a piece of paper and measure from heel to toe. If your measurement is between chart numbers, Under Armour recommend sizing up.

      I've had these boots for 2 years. They have well over 1000 miles on them. The soles are only now beginning to wear thru. The nylon uppers have held up incredibly well, no holes anywhere. Very light, comfortable, and true to size. Highly recommended and a great value.

      Reviewer: Daniel

      12/15/2015

      The boots are fine. Lightweight and comfortable, but nothing outstanding. Mine unfortunately arrived with white dust/paint stains at the sole. With some use I think this stains will eventually peel from the sole, but this has reduced their initial appeal and somehow disappointed me. Disregarding these stains as an isolated quality failure, the boots are good, but definitively not the best UA has to offer.

      Reviewer: George

      9/11/2015

      I have a pair of Under Armor GTX boots that I love, but I can't wear at work (no leather toe). The fit and feel of the GTX was incredible, so I went looking for a pair of Under Armor boots with a leather toe. I found the Alegent for a touch over $100 bucks. I assumed the quality of the boot would be as good as the GTX, just with fewer features. I was sorely disappointed. While the Alegent has the same outer sole as the GTX (and apparently the same insole insert), it feels as if it has substantially less padding, making spending ANY length of time in the boot uncomfortable. the cloth upper is as thin as the cloth you would find on a pair of cheap 40-dollar jungle boot knockoffs you'd get in an army-navy store. There is NO padding on the tongue, so the thin laces cut into the top of the foot. The boot cuff is well-made, without too much or too little padding. And yes, as I said before, the sole has the same excellent tread design as the GTX. This is obviously a boot made to market the name of "Under Armor" without any real attempt to make the boot wearable. Should it have the features of the GTX? No. The GTX is a GoreTex-lined waterproof boot, and should cost more. There is, however, no excuse for producing a boot that lacks even a modicum of comfort. Even cheaper 5.11 boots (at QUITE a bit less!) are more comfortable.

      Reviewer: Bill

      7/16/2015

      I bought these boots about 18 months ago. They have at least 300 miles on them, probably more. They have stood up incredibly well, and I expected them not to last. Wear on the soles is barely noticeable, and they are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. Not disagreeing with some of the negative reviews, maybe UA ships a bad lot sometimes. I have only great things to say about my boots. And I paid $135, they are now $102.

      Reviewer: APB

      5/2/2015

      Lightweight Spine designed sole actually bends and reacts to surface being walked on. Well ventilated, great price (on sale), delivered fast, fits to size stands up to my expectations of Under Armour Gear. However chewed through laces in less than a week, this is an issue with most boots. The laces that come with the boot seem up to par for dress shoes instead of tactical boots.

      Reviewer: Jason

      2/3/2015

      I love the boot. It is very light weight and very comfortable to walk around in for long periods of time. The only knock I have against it is the fact if the ground is icy and or wet you have to watch your footing due to the soles not having any traction to grip the surface. It would get a 5 star rating but because of the slipping issue I have to give it a 4

      Purchased these a few weeks ago, as always arrived within a few days after I ordered them. Out of the box they looked great, the multicam pattern was on par with my work pants(also multicam) These are super lightweight boots, comfortable and have seem to be pretty durable so far. The only downside to them is that on wet concrete they tend to slip and slide a bit, either than that these are a great lightweight and damn good looking boot

      Reviewer: Bill

      8/1/2014

      I have owned these boots for about a month. They have about 30 miles on them, of normal civilian wear. They have not come apart as some reviewers have reported. They show no signs of wear anywhere, not even hardly on the soles. Extremely comfortable, lightweight, and cool. Outstanding arch and ankle support. Without question the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. Basically a high-top cross training boot, not a robust combat boot. I don't expect them to last forever, probably 1-2 years of normal use. At $135 a pair, I can handle that. As to the negative reviews, maybe UA shipped a bad lot at one point. Mine seem fine.

      I wanted to switch from a military boot to a lighter shoe. These were definitely lighter. I found that the footbed/insoles offered little support. I ordered my normal shoe size (12) and they fit correctly. The boot was returned due to the lack of support so I can not comment on wear.

      So I have been an UA fan for a long time. I'm talking I bought my 1st heat gear shirt to wear under my body armor 11 yrs ago. I bought some speed freaks a while ago. I think they are great. I bought black ones for uniform needs. I was excited to see the Alegents as I could get them in green. I would call these the modern version of the old school jungle boots. I had to wait as I preordered them. When they arrived I was very excited. After that things started to go down hill. The color is much different than it appears online. MUCH LIGHTER. I call them more Andy's Candies Mint Green. They actually glow next to the uniform. So then the bottom drops out. I am heading to work and grab my boots to put them on. The rear upper seem area has separated. I have only had them for 2 weeks! They are super light. Very comfortable right out of the box. But, none of that matters when they start to come apart right out of the box too!

      I bought these boots three days ago and they are alredy torn in the back by the ankle. The mesh part of the boot is not strong enough for field training. I know this because all I was doing was walking in them at the time. On the good side they are the most comfortable boot I worn yet.

      The boot is super comfortable, do not get me wrong, they are lightweight and extremely snug on my feet. I have been wearing them for a month now and from the moment I put them on I loved them, best boot I have worn comfort wise. BUT in just three to four weeks in Afghanistan they are torn and falling apart at the back of the boot near the pull tab to the heel and are very poorly put together and not durable.

      Best boots I've ever owned! These boots are super lightweight and very comfortable. Throughout my years in the service I have owned many pairs and different brands of boots and nothing comes close to the comfort of these. Also they look great, I get compliments on them wherever I got and people are constantly asking me where they can buy a pair.

      These boots are amazing in regards to fitment and break-in, requiring little to no time to become "shaped" to your foot. HOWEVER, after a mere three weeks of REGULAR use (read, no ruck marching, no formation movements, ect.) the fibrous material at the top of the boot has completely severed from the heel-strap, leaving a nice hole capable of fitting a finger through. If you are interested in these boots, I would beg to look at other long-standing offerings from other companies before jumping on board with this new boot.

      I just finished basic combat training. I tried on all the other boots, Rockies, converse, Nike, oaklies. None of them are as comfortable as these. If I had had these on my ten mile march in basic I could have run the entire ten miles. Ultra lightweight, EXTREMELY comfortable, it's like walking on air. I have them four stars because they don't come in the standard issue tan that our regular issue boots are. Past that, no complaints. I wear these and only these every single day.

      Best boots I have ever had. I like them better than the Oakley boots and they are really lite.

      The boots are made well and comfortable, but they are smaller than any size 11 regular that I've ever owned. I would buy them again but would order an 11 1/2 wide instead of an 11 regular

      Olny been able to wear it for about an hour because the PRC E7 I'm with is worried about the multicam on it even though that is the same uniform I'm currently wearing. Ordered 2 pair of these boots, and the were both lighter than a pair of the issued boots. Super comfortable, and great breathability.

      I gotta give these boots 5 stars. I recieved them and threw them on for a training event where we were beating the ground hard on the range for 9 consecutive hours without more than a 15 minute break. I did not even have a chance to break these boots in before the event (I know, seems like a rookie mistake). Anyway, feet were a little sore but no blisters. For a non broken in boot that is fantastic. The boots breath like a pair of socks and weigh just about as much without sacraficing durability. I will absolutley be buying another pair of these!
