First responders are athletes in every sense of the word, but their moves are infinitely more vital. To meet their intense physical demands, the Nike SFB was built with the latest athletic footwear technology. Parts of the forefoot are puncture- and laceration-resistant, while the midsole is super-cushioned and extra flexible, ensuring a smooth heel-to-toe transition. The directional-traction outsole features reverse edges and a slightly raised heel for better grip when walking and running downhill. Fit
Synthetic leather overlays make the Nike SFB tough yet flexible, requiring no break-in period. It's comfortable right out of the box. The sturdy outer shell creates a snug fit, protects against scuffing and helps keep water out, while the anatomical sockliner moves easily with the foot and adds support and cushioning. A special lock-lace system helps keep the foot in place and maintain a comfortable, customised fit during extended wear. Ventilation
The Nike Special Field Boot is made for hot weather. Breathable, quick-drying fibres work to keep the foot comfortable in warm conditions and sweat-wicking materials help the boot dry out fast.

Design origins During World War II, Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman served as a member of the 10th Mountain Division in Italy. Upon his return, he became the head athletics coach at his alma mater, the University of Oregon. It was there that he honed a gift for creating high-performance footwear for his athletes. This boot is a realisation of both of Bowerman's worlds.
