Under Armour is one of the most well-known brands in the world. Selling everything from sports apparel to hiking equipment and running shoes to tactical boots, Under Armour has certainly earned a reputation of quality since it was established in 1996. Their best-selling Valsetz RTS Boots are certainly no exception. Under Armour gave the original Valsetz boots a major upgrade and law enforcement, military, and outdoor enthusiasts are giving the Valsetz RTS tactical boot the thumbs-up of approval.
The UA Valsetz RTS boots are available in both mens’ and womens’ sizes in a variety of colors including Black, Coyote Brown, Desert Sand, and Ridge Reaper Barren. These tactical boots aren’t just durable and high-quality, but they’re also sleek in design. Under Armour combined a traditional tactical boot with the styling of an outdoor sport boot and the result is a professional, tough, yet discrete piece of footwear that has now become one of the brand’s most popular tactical boot models.
The Valsetz RTS tactical boots feature an 18-cm (7-in) ankle height with a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) shank giving the wearer ultimate ankle support. Under Armour ClutchFit technology hugs the ankle without being too restrictive and the fabric is lightweight and breathable, yet very supportive – preventing injuries like sprained or rolled ankles. Whether you’re wearing your tactical boots over slippery ground or loose terrain, the lacing system will keep the Valsetz RTS boots snug to your feet, even during the most strenuous of activities.
By far one of the most major benefits and features of the UA Valsetz RTS tactical boots is the level of comfort that they provide. Many other brands and tactical boot designs feel uncomfortable and stiff, regardless of breaking them in. However, the Valsetz RTS model has been praised for feeling as comfortable as running or casual shoes. Thanks to Under Armour’s ClutchFit technology, the hourglass shape of the body of the shoe, contours to the wearer’s foot – expanding and contracting with the body’s natural movement. Their Micro G technology is essentially a lightweight memory foam that provides both comfort and stability.
Another major perk about the Valsetz RTS boot is that it offers unparalleled protection from the elements. The toughest terrain, the coldest temperatures, and the wettest weather are no match for this tactical boot. The entire boot has a Durable Water Resistant finish that prevents soaking if you’re walking through shallow streams or puddles and keeps out rain. Although not classified as a “winter boot,” the Valsetz RTS boots are known to provide enough warmth to wear during cold temperatures. By the same token, the boots liner is extremely breathable, making them ideal for hot and humid conditions. The Ortholite antimicrobial sock liner will help keep sweat and odor to a minimum and the TPU toe helps protect feet from rocks and other debris.
Finally, the textile material of the Under Armour Valsetz RTS tactical boots helps prevent puncturing from brush, rocks, and other debris. It also withstands normal wear-and-tear, preventing abrasions and tearing from daily use. The lug sole will provide the wearer with plenty of traction to prevent slipping without adding any unnecessary bulk or weight.
Despite being a tactical boot, the Valsetz RTS model is so comfortable and so versatile, that they can be used, not only for rugged terrain, but for normal, daily use. If you’re looking to invest in a new pair of reliable and durable boots, this Under Armour masterpiece-of-a-design will be a welcomed change.
