The perfect boot for active duty or outdoor adventuring, the AR670-1 and AFI 36-2903 compliant Oakley Elite Assault Boot is lightweight to provide extreme comfort and durability – making it a reliable military boot no matter where you take them.
Oakley Elite Assault Boot Overview
This boot is built like a tank and designed to provide quality ventilated comfort. The Elite Assault Boot sports a breathable 8” Cordura upper that is abrasive resistant. The Vibram SPE Midsole is specifically crafted to provide Oakley’s signature cushioning while giving you support and protection from all types of terrain, and to ensure you get the same level of performance at a lower weight, the boot features Vibram Litebase Outsoles. This tactical boot packs a lot of protection and is perfect for anyone who wants a lighter boot at a fair price.
A Lightweight Army Boot
The construction of the Oakley Elite Assault Boot boils down to providing maximum durability while maintaining a lighter weight. The Vibram Litebase technology reduces the thickness of the sole without compromising durability, reducing weight while maintaining the traditional characteristics of a military boot. You can feel confident that you’ll maintain a full range of motion and mobility – demands that marching or hiking long distances may bring.
The Best Assault Boot for any Terrain
Head out on a 20-mile hike through the Appalachians or put them to the test during your next training exercise; these boots are perfect for any terrain and can take on any task. Like the Oakley SI Light Assault Boot, the Elite military boot is precision-engineered – from the sole to its molded EVA insert – to transition across variable terrains.

Even with the reduction in thickness, the sole maintains the same structural integrity. You’ll experience cushioned support without risk of laceration. Similarly, the Molded EVA insert is one of the best shock absorption materials on the market. Originally designed to withstand the rigors of long-distance running, this material has proven to help minimize the impact of weight. Combined with Oakley’s Lace-Lock system, it’s possible to achieve comfort and durability while on duty.
