If you are shopping for military boots, you have likely heard about minimalist footwear, and if you aren’t sure what this term means, don’t worry, we are going to go over it in detail. Currently on the footwear market, there are many different types of minimalist boots available. To help you decide whether or not you want to try this footwear, we have provided you with four benefits that these boots provide over traditional combat boots.

Minimalist Footwear Increases Agility and Speed

One of the main reasons you may want to consider minimalist military boots is because this type of footwear helps to increase agility and speed thanks to a very light boot weight, which won’t drain your energy while wearing.tactical research tr101 mens mini mil

Reduce the Amount of Energy Exerted

When you have these light boots on your feet, you will spend less energy running and walking, which means you will be able to go farther for longer periods of time. This is especially beneficial when you are working overtime or taking part in long missions or marches.

Minimalist Military Boots create a Natural Gait

Unlike some types of combat boots or tactical boots, minimalist boots promote a very natural gait. A natural gait is created by a 5mm or less drop. This unique drop allows you to enjoy full extension of your muscles including your gluteus maximus, hamstrings and calves.

Stronger Feet, Ankles, and Back

As the name would suggest, minimalist military boots are made with less material and padding than traditional work boots. For this reason, when you wear this type of boot on your feet, you will enjoy a stronger back, feet, and ankles.
