Under Armour made quite an impression on military professionals when they debuted their Speed Freek boot last year. These rugged boots are lightweight and super speedy, featuring the sole of a running shoe and waterproof GoreTex lining. Plus, colors like duty black, brown or different camo patterns make these boots super versatile.
