About the Under Armour Speed Freek Waterproof Black Boot
The Under Armour Speed Freek may look like an ordinary men's uniform boot but that's just on the outside. In the Speed Freek, Under Armour has built a hybrid boot with many of the benefits of a running shoe in a lightweight, supportive and tough uniform boot. At only 20 ounces, you wouldn't expect the solid protection and support that this Under Armour tactical boot offers.
While Under Armour made the black Speed Freek tactical boot out of a nice thick pigskin waterproof leather combined with a very respectable 1000 denier nylon, they didn't stop there. Underneath, you'll find a Gore-Tex lining that is completely waterproof but still allows sweat to escape. Not only does this keep your feet dry but it also helps you to stay warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer.
Beneath your feet, you'll find that this tactical boot provides the both comfort and protection. The durable EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning and shock absorption. The molded Ortholite footbed is designed with a memory foam top and high-rebound foam bottom. This means that the footbed will mold to fit your feet without giving up the cushioning you want.

This helps to reduce the bruising that can occur on rough terrain or worse injuries that result from unkempt city streets without sacrificing the flexibility that helps to keep you moving fast.
The Under Armour Speed Freek is a 7 inch black boot. That means that it's just a hair shorter than a full height tactical boot but still taller than a short boot. For you, that means a perfect compromise between a tall boot that doesn't allow you the range of motion needed to run down a perp and a short boot that doesn't provide enough support to prevent potential injuries. On top of that, just in case you do have to use your feet for something other than moving, the high-abrasion TPU toe cap on the Under Armour Speed Freek gives extra durability and protection to prevent the front of your boots from taking damage.
