Police and Special Forces Boots by "Baltes"

We should also mention another kind of the same type German boots, which, on the other hand, can not be unambiguously attributed to the desert or tropical boots. We are talking about the police and special forces boots, designed for use in urban environments and indoors.

With a certain similarity with the German jungle boots, they differ in a number of features: colour (black), materials, some details of construction and the outsole are very different.

The outsole is multi-layer in construction, direct-mold, it's more "streamlined" and soft, without sharply protruding hooks tread. It is made of nitrile rubber ("Nitrilkautschuk-Sohle" in German), as well as brothers-in-class, it is antistatic and resistant to oil, petrol (gasoline), acid, alkali. These outsole is wear-resistant too. But these advantages have their "dark side": if this material if not properly stored (in dry hot places or even in the sun), it should crack from drying out. This is the reverse side of the convenience and flexibility of nitrile rubber.

The boot-top is made of black polyamide, which is softer in touch, the welt on top is padded with leather "collar", the tongue is made of leather and is higher in length, thus providing additional protection for the lower front side of the feet. Similarly to Bundeswehr desert and Jungle boots, the tongue of each boot also features a rectangular leather label (patch) with indication of size and fullness, month and year of production, and the code of manufacturer.

The lacing accessories feature "speed-lacing system". In comparison with German jungle and desert boots, these boots have an additional pair of eyelets (seven "MARK"-labeled eyelets + hook clamp for laces).

All of the abovementioned boots by "BALTES" company are lightweight and sturdy, comfortable and practical, with well-fixed ankle protector that provides good adhesion to most surfaces. General construction and design allow favorable microclimate for feet and comfort in use.
