As we hopefully head towards warmer weather and longer games and airsoft events of course our thoughts turn towards kit requirements, and what we’ll be needing to upgrade and/or replace.

Some of us have been wearing the original mid-cut SNEAKER boots from VIPER TACTICAL for a few years now and they’ve stood up really well to regular use and abuse, so we were REALLY glad to hear from the VIPER crew that they’ve just released a high-cut version of this excellent lightweight boot which will be just perfect when married up to their ELITE TROUSERS.

They sent us a mail to say;

“We’re introducing our Tactical Sneaker Boots; these are a fusion of Oxford nylon and Suedette in the upper for durability and comfort. Effortlessly slip into style with the convenient side zip, while the EVA sole ensures feather-light comfort and support. Features include:

Side zip
Hook and loop fastening zip guard
Suede upper
Water resistant
Embroidered logo on the tongue
Embossed logo on heel”

Available in UK sizes 7-12 the Tactical Sneakers are an ultra-lightweight boot which has a sports-fit, so you might want to consider going up a size up from your standard tactical boot sizing; Bill is usually a good size 9 and was advised to go for a 10 and the fit for him in the original Mids is perfect with no unnecessary volume, and no felt pressure in evidence.

Coming in Black or Coyote these will be great value; if you’re planning on new boots for Summer ‘24, and you abide by the mantra that “light is right”, then the Tactical Sneakers (Mid or High!) could be just the footwear you’ve been looking for!
