Description: Oakley LSA Water Boots

Missions that involve water are not a simple matter of stepping through puddles or treading along tidemarks. They often require full submersion, so waterproofing can be a detriment by holding in water that invariably infiltrates the boot. The Oakley LSA Water Boot is engineered to drain quickly and dry fast, and with a low-profile flat lace that mitigates pressure points along the top surface, it can be worn with swim fins, in addition to maintaining the comfort and mobility of the ultra lightweight design, this combination of rapid draining/drying helps improve stealth by reducing the chances of leaving footprint puddles.

Surface grip is critical for any water-optimized design, so the LSA Water Boot features a slip-resistant Unobtainium outsole. The durable material is dimensionally siped with channels for traction on wet, flat surfaces while the formulation of the rubber maintains sure footing on uneven surfaces that reduce the area of contact and therefor require a material with superior grip.

To enhance the quick-draining performance, this boot is crafted with an EVA midsole engineered with drainage pillars, plus a perforated EVA footbed. The EVA is specially formulated for maximum step-in comfort and long lasting shock absorption that does not pound down like inferior foams. Comfort is further optimized by a combination of Scotchgard treated pig suede and 1000 Denier Cordura in an anatomically corrected upper that offers a glove-like fit.

Key Features of Oakley LSA Water Boots:
  • 1.4 - 1.6mm Scotchgard treated pig suede plus 1000 Denier Cordura
  • Anatomically corrected for a comfortably snug, glove-like performance fit
  • Aquatic adaptability with rapid drainage and quick-drying structural elements
  • Low-profile flat laces to eliminate pressure points when boots is used with swin fins
  • Specially formulated EVA for maximum step-in comfort and long lasting shock absorption
  • Slip-resistant Unobtainium outsole for exceptional traction on flat in both wet and dry conditions
  • Gusseted tongue to block entry of water and debris
  • Height of LSA is 6"

BEST ANSWER: This is coyote brown model, but you will want to make sure that his commander has authorized 'optional' boot wear per Dept. Army Pamphlet 670-1. See sec 20-3 page 124 (3) (a). This pair is NOT listed as meeting the requirement. Also the LSA model is for water-based activities (with drain holes ONLY in the BOTTOM of the sole). Oakley makes a land-based model as well, "TERRAIN Model' which is available in coyote, and they make models that meet the current requirement (SI and AR models). The LSA Water is very low weight and has no shank (very little) support in the sole, but they drain water like a sieve (out the bottom of the sole - not the side) and leave little to no water-trace footprint, and also dry fast. They ARE made in CHINA (FWIW). He would perhaps wear them out quickly with full-time field use, probably in less than 90 days or sooner. Ask him if he would prefer a pair of Danner Tacticus, unless you know for a fact he needs water-mission-dedicated 'optional' boots for his kit. You can read more on interpretation of the current requirements by searching for 'SMA Chandler’s Latest Leaders Book Notes – Boots.' Thanks for being a good Army mom!
