Converse kicks it up a notch when it comes to combat boots. The Rapid Response features Tailex lining, which ensures long-lasting comfort, abrasion resistance and climate control. Preventing any burdening blisters and other unwanted aches, this technology allows Converse military boots to rapidly adapt to a foot that's constantly in motion. Additionally, it creates tiny air pockets that maintain a favorable climate inside the boot that gives the foot more breathing room during any tactical operation. Especially vital in hot climates, the lining will capture every iota of moisture, pulling it away from the foot and readying it for evaporation as soon as the boot is taken off. This speedy evaporation process greatly reduces mildew- and odor-causing bacteria.
The side zipper is a high-quality YKK brand that unzips with ease so operators don't have to mess with laces after strenuous missions. Its composite toe is rated ASTM F2413-05 I/75 C/75. That means that toes will be safe from an impact up to 75 pounds and compressive loads up to 2,500 pounds.
The removable dual density polyurethane cushion provides a ridged pillow that protects the sole of foot. For extra reinforcement, Converse placed an EVA midsole between feet and the rugged terrain. Rounding out the sole, there's a shock eliminator heel plug and a dual density mountain trail outsole that gives not one, but two firm, shock-absorbing layers of compact rubber.
