Why did Under Armour make the black Valsetz RTS?
Under Armour's law enforcement customers had a problem. They needed a boot that was durable and rugged for a variety of terrains and environments, but this boot couldn't compromise their speed and maneuverability. With very few lightweight, durable boots on the market, Under Armour stepped up to the plate and designed an athletic shoe-tactical boot hybrid they now call the Valsetz RTS.
When constructing this tactical boot, Under Armour implemented a slimmer, more athletic cut that provides better mobility through eliminating bulky, excess fabric. Along with that athletic cut is the UA ClutchFit technology which wraps your ankle with a lightweight second skin giving you added support and a nice feel to the boot. This technology helps prevent potential injury to the ankle.
The upper portion of this boot is made out of extremely durable synthetic leather and a synthetic textile that was welded with abrasion resistant film around the perimeter of the boot. This means these boots can hold up to the abuse that comes with tough jobs. The black Valsetz RTS boots can handle whatever you throw at it. To go with the abrasion resistant film is the TPU toe cap. This protects your toes and boots while your running, climbing, or even if you kick something.
Beneath your protected feet are other nice features that will help keep you comfortable. Sometimes your feet can take a beating especially if you are running so Under Armour added a lightweight responsive foam cushion that supports your stride and turns your cushioned landing in an explosive rebound. These cushions also go the full length of the boot unlike many other footwear comfort systems. Aside from cushioning, you also need support and the lightweight TPU shank will provide that mid-foot support you need and the right amount of rigidity without restricting your movement. To top it all off, Under Armour placed an Ortholite sockliner on the inside of the boot which has a memory foam top and PU base. This sockliner provides a higher level of comfort and also minimizes slippage and rubbing so you can keep going all day long.
Whether you are a law enforcement or military professional or just someone looking for a good looking lightweight boot, the Under Armour Valsetz is definitely a boot you should check out. The modern athletic design is attractive and unique without being too far out to wear with a law enforcement, paramedic or security uniform. While they'll function very well as a law enforcement boot for those with uniform requirements, the black Valsetz RTS is also a great boot for warm weather hiking, hunting and paintball.
