Under Armour Valsetz RTS Tactical Boot
I worked on the review of these Under Armour Valsetz RTS Tactical Boots with James Menta of SoleLabz.com, where his team tests and reviews hiking and tactical footwear. James offers the following thoughts on Under Armour and the Valsetz RTS Tactical Boots.
A word about Under Armour (UA). What we now know as an established brand of footwear (from running to combat and tactical) started with a simple thought of one Kevin Plank, who is the founder of UA. In 1995, he was a football player and just wanted a more comfortable T-shirt, so he started his own company to make one. It was only uphill from there. In 2006, UA officialy started making footwear and today, they are manufacturing some of the best hiking and tactical boots in the world. The Valsetz RTS boots we are reviewing today are one of those models.
What is under Under Armour saying about the Valsetz RTS?
Under Armour is listing quite a few strong sides of the boots as advantages over the competition, with its main forte being the upper of the boot that’s designed to be resistant to water, very light and yet durable. The perimeter of the foot is made to be resistant to abrasions by using a mixture of textile and leather. They list a few patented technologies and materials that are supposed to make the Valsetz unparalleled in absorbing shocks, comfy landings and “locked foot” experience. In the specs below, they talk about, TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) shank, Molded Ortholite used in the sockliner, special anti-odor materials, the midsole made of compressed EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate)…
All these terms don’t say much to the average user until you slip them on and they touch the ground.
That’s where the real scrutiny starts. So, let’s do it.
