SHOT Show 2012: Under Armour Speed Freek Boots

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.
