Recently released, the Hybrid Hiker from Wellco allows the wearer to be more agile, while providing Kevlar-level protection. Needless to say, this boot can take a beating. In addition, Ferguson points out that the military boot provides “our forces a new Berry Compliant option” for boots that are used in the mountain terrain.
“The Wellco Hybrid Hiker is constructed for mountain combat and the harshest terrains,” writes Kerry Ferguson, director of marketing and communications for Wellco. “Although extremely lightweight, no durability was sacrificed in the development of this rugged combat boot.”
According to Ferguson, the Wellco Hybrid Hiker is constructed with exclusive fabric developed by Wellco. The fabric contains “a Kevlar blend providing premium durability for a textile,” states Ferguson. The Hiker also includes a proprietary Vibram outsole designed for mountain warfare.
The combat boot is waterproof and breathable. Built to take a beating, the boot’s sharkskin toe cap and heel counter up its durability factor. The 7.5-inch boot weighs under 27 ounces and is available in regular and wide sizes (4-14).
