Belleville’s Tactical Research QRF Series DELTA 6 Mid Cut Boot is worth checking out – lightweight design at a decent price.
The DELTA 6 Mid is “designed to address the infil & exfil operations of a Quick Reaction Force, or QRF, team in mind,” according to optactical.com. “The QRF Series of boots offer a unique and purposeful option for when movement is essential. With design and performance influences from the outdoor trekking and approach shoe category, the QRF Series integrates an aggressive, lace-to-toe closure system, a medial side rappelling overlay and low profile soling system to enhance performance in multiple environments.”
They are six inches in height and feature an upper of smooth, full-grain cattlehide leather and Destination P mesh. The midsole is highly cushioned to absorb shock.
The outsole features Belleville’s long-wearing RAKKASAN rubber outsole for enhanced slip resistance and grip. The insole features OrthoLite high performance removable insert. The dual density molded insert has high rebound memory foam and a heel cup stabilizer.
Special features include an integrated fast rope channel with high friction rubber for controlled descent and a unique, approach-shoe lacing system for customized fit.
The QRF DELTA 6 Mid Cut Boot comes in coyote and black. It retails for $148 but they are on sale for $127 at optactical.com.
