A new boot designed by a former Navy SEAL has caught the attention of elite operators across the military including some West Coast reconnaissance Marines and members of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. LALO Tactical’s Shadow boots are tailor-made for the types of missions the nation’s most elite fighters conduct. It aims to be light, quick drying, durable, comfortable, and efficient under heavy loads.

Its creator, Nathanael Roberti, started LALO Tactical in 2009 after leaving active duty where he served with SEAL Team 10 and participated in Operation Red Wings to recover SEAL Marcus Luttrell when a 2005 raid in Afghanistan went wrong. Roberti found that footwear was consistently the most lacking piece of gear he had in the field, so he partnered with experts from the athletic apparel industry and sought the input of operators still on active duty with the goal of offering SEALs and other troops new options.
