More than just high-tops

The Tough As Nails Sneakers From 5.11 Tactical


October 8, 2019 Briefings By

While on the surface, 5.11 Tactical’s Norris Sneaker may look like a run of the mill high-top, under the hood it’s packing some serious design. Like everything from 5.11, the Norris is full of tactical intelligence, making it the perfect sneaker to take on an adventure or two. The outsole is a Vibram Marbani equipped with XS Trek to give you the perfect balance of traction — especially on wet terrain — and durability. On the inside, Ortholite tech gives your feet complete support with cushiony comfort. Built from tough as nails Welmax board, the Norris is puncture resistant and ASTM certified. 5.11 Tactical’s Norris Sneaker has the functionality and performance of a tactical boot but with the comfort of a sneaker, so you can wear it every day with ease.
