Converse VelocityThe Converse Velocity combines the feel of an athletic shoe with the performance of a combat boot. These boots measure the standard eight inches, but they are remarkably flexible and lightweight compared to conventional military boots. Leather and ballistic nylon construction make this boot tough and able to withstand harsh conditions. A nylon mesh lining and air vents at the sides promote circulation and temperature control, while side zippers make it easy to get into and out of these lace-up boots in a flash. Military and law enforcement personnel rely on the Velocity when they need boots that grip the terrain but do not weigh them down.
