5.11 continues its crusade to keep expanding its catalog of durable, dependable, and stylish clothing and apparel. While 5.11 started out as a mostly outdoors-focused clothing company with a heavy emphasis on tactical wear, today they are becoming more and more of a popular apparel company. This doesn’t mean that 5.11 is just churning out cheap clothing, quite the opposite, 5.11’s clothing lineup has grown to encompass a whole new unique style of clothing that is not only fashionable but functional too. This clearly shines through in their 2022 Fall Footwear lineup which includes the new A/T Ranger 2.0, A/T Mid Boot, Volcanic Norris Sneaker, and the all-new High Gloss Duty Oxford for the well-prepared office jockey. Full details are below in the official press release from 5.11 Tactical.

May Your Feet Always Be Ready: 5.11’s 2022 Fall Footwear Lineup
COSTA MESA, Calif. (Oct. 26, 2022) – 5.11 Tactical®, the global innovator of purpose-built apparel, footwear and gear, today unveiled an expanded lineup of footwear available this fall, including updated models, expanded colorways and the introduction of all-new items.
“As many public safety professionals, outdoor enthusiasts and training experts know, footwear is an integral piece of gear,” said 5.11’s Vice President, Global Product, Matt Page. “Without proper footwear, even the most routine tasks can become difficult, which is why we strive to provide functional and comfortable footwear for a wide range of activities.”
The A/T Ranger 2.0 ($110) features 5.11’s All Terrain Load Assistance System Technology (A.T.L.A.S. Technology) that provides complete support, whether on a job or a hiking trail. A removable support plate creates extra support when there are heavy loads to carry. The breathable mesh construction keeps feet cool while the scratch rubber toe cap adds durability and protection. The outsole is patterned with a multi-direction lug design for maximum grip on any terrain while the Ortholite® insole is combined with a 5.11® Echo Lite high rebound EVA midsole for maximum support and comfort.
The A/T Mid Boot ($150) has been expanded to offer a new coyote colorway. This customer-favorite also utilizes 5.11’s A.T.L.A.S.technology to distribute weight, improve stability and return energy to offer all-day support, performance and comfort. Additional features include a 3D molded TPR toe and heel for protection, a welded-mesh upper for breathability and a high traction outsole.
The Norris Sneaker ($115) is now available in a volcanic colorway to give customers additional styling options with this durably but casual, high-top sneaker. Offering an outstanding blend of style and functionality, the Norris features a Vibram® Marbrani outsole with XS Trek to provide traction and durability along with Ortholite® technology that cushions with support and comfort. It’s ASTM certified for puncture resistance and built with a super-strong Welmax board that protects feet against up to 1,200 newtons of force.
A new High Gloss Duty Oxford ($100) has been introduced for those who serve and need a dress uniform show that feels as good as it looks. The high-shine patent leather upper creates a clean and professional style while an Ortholite® footbed provides increased cushioning and a tough Vibram® outsole offers functionality.
Personally, I’m really digging the new High GLoss Duty Oxford shoes. I think the combination of the classic dress-shoe design with a Vibram outsole gives the wearer the perfect combination of function and style. The A/T Rangers are some of the most versatile shoes/boots that 5.11 has and they give you a bit more cushion and support than their A/T trainers, but still maintain a high level of mobility compared to full boots.
