5.11 Awarded the 2022 Innovation Award for Footwear from The Network American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors

IRVINE, Calif. (June 29, 2022) – 5.11, Tactical, the global innovator of purpose-built apparel, footwear and gear, was recently announced as the winner of the 2022 Innovation Award in the footwear category for its A/T™ 8” HD Boot from The Network American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors (NAUMD).

The NAUMD is a non-profit global network of companies that outfit hundreds of millions of workers around the world. Its annual Innovation Awards recognize unique designs, advanced technology and excellence within the public safety uniform, image apparel, and workwear industry.

5.11 won the footwear category for its A/T 8” HD Boot for its ability to distribute weight, improve stability, and return energy to provide all-day performance while also offering protection from heat and the sun. The A/T 8” HD Boot features the brand’s patented A.T.L.A.S. (All Terrain Load Assistance System) Technology - its most advanced footwear system, designed to offer enhanced support, optimal performance and maximum comfort. In addition, the boots feature a heat-reflective strobel sock, which reflects heat from pavement and concrete away, while a new, infrared-refracting leather drops surface temperature, providing a cooler and more comfortable wearing experience.

“Our product team puts a strong emphasis on leading with innovation and advanced technology to create the best products possible for our end users,” said Brendan Rynne, Senior Category Manager, Footwear for 5.11. “We are honored to receive this award as a testament to our many hours of work and dedication to creating the A/T 8” HD Boot.”

Additional key features that help accomplish the boot’s overall superior functionality are the A.T.L.A.S. Plate for support and weight distribution, Ortholite® Comfort Foam Footbed for all-day comfort, an Echo-Lite Foam EVA/outsole for energy return with each step, Force Form for high-impact protection, an aggressive and high-traction ASTM outsole for improved traction, and TPU welding. The A/T 8” HD Boot also has a perforated tongue that creates added breathability and airflow.
