Nike SFB?

Has anyone ever heard of or tried these boots? I saw these on the nike website, and they look pretty neat, I just am not sure what to think of them yet. They have a sole similar to the Frees, so maybe they are designed like the frees, to enhance forefoot running, flexibility, etc.? The drawback from this may be that it has the durability of a running shoe as well.

so I want to know what everyone's experiences with these shoes are?

Thanks

Re: Nike SFB?

I have had a pair for over a year. In my opinion, they are better than any other combat boot that I have used. I will elaborate on this statement if you need me to.

Re: Nike SFB?

Yes please, are they durable like a combat boot or are they just a bigger version of a running shoe?

While I haven't used the SFB, I have the Nike Free combat boots and can say they are one of the best items I have ever bought. Boots that weigh around a 1 lb - they are fantastic.

Re: Nike SFB?

What about door kicking or more practical uses? They seem like they would be great for runs and sucks, but seem kind of leary towards kicking in a door.

What's the difference? I thought they were one in the same. I'm thinking about getting a pair, at least for garrison use. Not sure how they'd stand up to hard training or deployments.

Re: Nike SFB?

Thanks for the link guys.

I will have a new video going up soon, but a buddy of mine used his all through Ranger school (alternated between 2 pairs so he would always have a dry pair) and loved them. When the other guys got internet access, they ordered a pair too.

More info soon, and I make nothing off the sales of them--just a great option.

Rock on

Re: Nike SFB?

I hear that they're very comfortable but don't last too long.

Err, my bad. Didn't realize they were the same thing. I apologize.
