Technology High Performance Materials
For more than 70 years, the famous yellow octagon that identifies the Vibram® brand has been synonymous with quality, performance, safety, innovation and design. Vibram® soles, created with a desire to increase safety and protection levels, are the result of a constant commitment to research and development. Developed using only the best designs and compounds available to withstand the elements in which the boot will be used, Vibram® outsoles continually prove to be irreplaceable companions during many extreme expeditions. New soles are always produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort and quality over time.
With so many military personnel around the world relying daily on their Belleville’s, Belleville in-turn relies on Vibram®. Most Belleville boots feature a Vibram® outsole made of 100% rubber for maximum performance.
Over the years, Belleville & Vibram® have provided millions of boots to over 30 militaries across the globe. With the worldwide design, compounding and production abilities of Vibram®,Belleville customers are guaranteed quality and performance world over.
GORE-TEX® footwear provides durably waterproof protection that is highly breathable in a variety of climate conditions. GORE-TEX® fabric is engineered to keep moisture from entering the boot while allowing
perspiration to escape. The optimal combination of breathability and insulation keeps feet drier while maintaining comfort. This helps prevent feet from overheating or issues caused by excessive perspiration build up inside the boots. The GORE-TEX® lining is also POL (Petroleum, Oil and Lubricant)resistant.
MeraMAX® is specifically designed for the high performance demands of military boots. This tough and durable polyurethane elastomer outsole used on various styles of
our boots is lightweight, long-wearing, slip resistant, flexible, shock absorbing, energy returning, comfortable, heat and flame resistant, oil /solvent resistant, and hydrolytically stable.
This original “warm without bulk” product was developed specifically for footwear. With its micro-fibers trapping and holding body heat, THINSULATE™ maintains warmth even in damp conditions. Not only is it exceptionally thin, but is also extremely lightweight and durable.
DuPont™ Nomex® is the fiber that’s engineered to stand up to excessive flame temperatures; therefore, provides superior heat and flame resistance which cannot be washed out or worn away. It won’t melt, drip, or support combustion in the air, giving you the confidence it takes to focus on the fight. For superior performance in the areas of flame resistance, thermal protection, comfort and durability, DuPont™ NOMEX® offers exceptional results.
FULL GRAIN LEATHER
We only use the finest quality full-grain, cowhide leather in all of our boots. This durable leather is engineered for superior breathability and long-lasting wear.
Full-grain leather (the highest quality of cowhide leather) has many properties making it a superior material for footwear. It's thicker, stronger and less prone to cracking than other leathers, as well as more flexible and breathable. Cowhide leather also naturally repels moisture, retains its shape, and resists sun and heat damage, making it ideal for boots.
HIGH CLEARANCE SAFETY TOES
Each of our high-clearance steel and composite toes meet ASTM F2412-05 and F2413-05 standards for impact & compression and Electrical Hazard (EH) rated. Design extras, such as padding under and around the safety toe and our flange-anchored construction, provide both increased comfort and safety.
