Tactical boots and shoes are worn in military situations. Whether on base, in training or out in the field, tactical boots and shoes should be comfortable when standing at attention for long periods of time or walking long distances. There are several companies that make tactical boots that are durable and comfortable.
Converse Tactical Boots and Shoes
Converse manufactures tactical boots and shoes for both women and men. The Converse line of tactical boots and shoes are both comfortable and durable due to their flexibility (so no break-in time is required). Joint pain is also reduced in the ankles and foot muscles due to a fitted heel-shaped cup and arch support. Twisted ankle injuries are reduced due to a high ankle stabilizer on the boots, as well.
5.11 Tactical Boots
5.11 Tactical Boots are manufactured for women and men. These boots come with safety toes as well as a shock management system built in. The boots can be ordered without safety toes if desired. The boots come in six- and eight-inch varieties.

The boots are manufactured by Magnum Essential Equipment and is made of a combination of durable leather and mesh for breathability. They are also "airport friendly" (easy to remove at airport security) and don't require much break-in time.
