Belleville Flyweight Boots – In Stock and Same Day Shipping

Back on October 19th, we introduced you to the Belleville Flyweight boot, the hottest garrison boot out there.  This is the latest boot in the Belleville Shoe Tactical Research line.  It is one bad ass boot folks.  When I say it is light, I am not kidding.  Weighing in at a mere 1.5 to 2.5 pounds per pair (size makes a difference), these are a winner in my book when it comes to a garrison boot.

There are three layers of cushioning comfort for superior shock absorption and come  with some truly innovative design features that add both comfort and stability to your step.  As follows:

  • Medial side air vents to keep your feet cool, dry, and comfortable
  • A highly breathable unlined upper
  • An athletic feel and fit.  Essentially, this boot feels like a sneaker.
  • Double and triple stitched seams for enhanced durability.  Solid tack points at all the important seams ends.
  • Tough VIBRAM premium rubber outsole
  • Built-in VANGUARD Sole System for high performance

We carry the Belleville Flyweight Boot in both Sage Green and Desert Tan, so you can choose the pair that best suits your tastes – or the requirements of your uniform. Did we mention that this boot wears like a sneaker but performs like a champion?

Now, I’ve tasked our employee Patrick with helping us sell all these boots that we just unloaded off the truck.  Let me tell you, he is a little less than pleased with his new found accommodations!  For the last few days, we locked him in the warehouse and told him he isn’t allowed out until every last pair is shipped!  Check out his video from inside the warehouse.  We’ve surrounded him with every single box of flyweights and he isn’t allowed out until further notice.  So come on folks, help set Patrick free!  Use coupon code “freepatrick” and get an additional 10% off the boots!

Putting Together Your Warrior Dash Battle Uniform

Marine Corps Shirt: WE FIGHT WHAT YOU FEARThe Warrior Dash isn’t an event for the faint of heart. If your heart pounds at the thought of beer and turkey legs and your adrenaline rushes at the sound of your boots splashing through the mud, then you’re most certainly ready to prove yourself as a warrior.  Want to learn more about the race? Check out the Warrior Dash website for details and to see if there’s an event near you.

In a nutshell, it’s a hardcore obstacle race that challenges your physical and mental ability. You’ll slog through mud, jump through fire, and hurdle over barricades. At the end, you get a free beer and food. What’s not to love?

At Patriot Surplus, we have (almost) everything you need to prepare for your run through the course. Here are some essentials to suit up with for your next Warrior Dash:

  • Ass Kicking Boots. You know what we’re talking about. These are boots that can stomp fear and crush just about any terrain you may encounter. The Warrior Dash course is thick with mud, tree branches, rocks, and yes, fire. Choose something durable and lightweight that you can run comfortably in, like a pair of Belleville Kiowa Multicam Combat Boots or another pair of lightweight boots from our selection. Don’t want to go for boots? A pair of broken in running shoes will do.
  • A Comfortable – but Tough T-Shirt. This isn’t a day at the park. It’s a filthy, sweat, hot mess of an event that tests the mind and the body. Push yourself to the limit, comfortably, with a surplus military tee or other lightweight t-shirt from our selection. Want to show off your years of military training (and strike fear into the hearts of the competition)? Try one of our military printed tees.
  • Slick Eyewear. Mud, dust, foliage…it’s all going to be in your face in the race, so make sure your eyes are protected. Go with a pair of G.I. Type Sun, Wind, & Dust Goggles. Or, if you want a bit more style and attitude, there’s always a pair of Aviator sunglasses. That’s right, Top Gun. You’re ready for anything.
  • Your Best Beard. We don’t sell these, but here’s a best beard award. Really.

Don’t want to go the traditional route? Some Warriors who participate in the Dash dress up as war heroes, gladiators, or Vikings. It’s all in good fun, and hey, it’s your call on what you want to wear.

When you check in and pick up your packet on the day of the Dash, you’ll get a race bib with safety pins, a chip timer, a t-shirt, a Warrior Helmet, and any extra helmets or eye black that you’ve purchased. You’re going to get filthy when you run, so wear clothes or a costume that you don’t mind getting muddy.

Also, bring a change of clothes with you. Trust us on this one.

My Belleville 795’s and a Log Cabin

I spent the last three weeks in the Catskill Mountains of New York building a log cabin with my family. In preparation for the trip, I ran through the warehouse and grabbed some items off the shelf I thought I might need. The first thing that I grabbed were a pair of Belleville 795 Waterproof boots. I didn’t really want the 200 grams of insulation, but I was in a rush and these fit my feet well. It turns out, these were an awesome pair of boots to use in an alternately scorching hot and wet and mucky environment.

While in the Catskills, I endured the first week of unyielding high temperatures in the 100’s. However, due to surface groundwater springs, the ground around the construction site was muddy and damp. It was an odd pairing at best. How does one keep their feet dry and comfy yet stay cool wearing 200 gram insulated boots? Well, I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t really have to worry about it. My feet never once got hot, itchy or achy despite wearing my Belleville Boots about 16 hours a day. In the morning, I pulled on a nice clean pair of socks or a pair of white polypropylene sock liners which turned out to be a great choice as well.

Two things did come up for me during my three weeks in the Catskills. First, I know we all get used to the Mickey Mouse ear shoelaces, but why do they have to make them so long in the first place? In my time in the Corps, I always ended up wrapping them around the top of my boots a few times and then tucking the ears into the top of my boots. In the Marines, this was no big deal. Now that I am a civilian, this was a pain in the ass. Call me spoiled, but it was an extra minute or so getting ready every morning.  I think I may replace them with some paracord cut to the exact length I want. I knew Marines who did this all the time because the paracord was unbreakable compared to the stock laces most boot manufacturers supply with their boots.

My second observation is that these boots are heavier than others I have worn. This is due to the Vanguard sole system Belleville uses. The Vanguard sole system is built much like a running shoe sole.  It provides a high performance, premium cushioning sole which distributes ground impact from your heel to your toe just like your favorite running shoes. Belleville combines a thick polyurethane cushion midsole with a durable VIBRAM® premium rubber outsole.  While it does truly give you an extremely comfortable fit, I think for me personally, they are a bit heavy. Although, if I were on a 26 mile ruck march in the winter, these are the boots I’d have on my feet. My dogs would be thanking me every mile!

At the end of the day, I give these boots a huge thumbs up.  My feet didn’t sweat much, I had zero blisters and I didn’t get any toe jam.  What more can you ask for in a boot that was worn 16 hours a day for three weeks straight?  I defer though to the soldiers and Marines who wear them 16 hours a day for months on end.  Belleville has been a great supplier for us and I have had incredibly few issues with their boots, I can’t even think of one right now to be honest.  The Belleville 795 is a great boot and I highly recommend it!
