BLACKHAWK! Enters The Men's Footwear Market With The Tanto Light Hiker

Leading tactical gear manufacturer BLACKHAWK! Products Group(TM), has entered the men's footwear market with the Tanto Light Hiker; an all-purpose trail shoe designed to transit from outdoor to casual indoor wear.

NORFOLK, Va.-- BLACKHAWK! Products Group(TM), the world leader in manufacturing tactical gear for the military, law enforcement, industrial security and outdoor markets, enters the men's footwear market with the Tanto Light Hiker; an all-purpose trail shoe designed to transit from outdoor to casual indoor wear.

Built upon BLACKHAWK!'s experience in developing all-day comfort and combat durability for warfighter and law officer footwear, the Tanto Light Hiker provides both comfort and performance in a lightweight, breathable shoe.

The Tanto Light Hiker offers excellent pronation control by absorbing the shock of each step and keeping the foot properly aligned whether on flat even surfaces or uneven trails. The heel is semi-rigid to provide additional support. The top cap is reinforced for protection as well as durability. The custom molded anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed is not only breathable and quick drying, but will not break down or lose its microbial fighting effectiveness over time and the injected insole board is waterproof.

The sole features multi-directional lugs for better traction and the self-cleaning feature keeps debris from gathering between the lugs. The Tanto Light Hiker is made from gray or tan nubuck suede with a lightweight, breathable nylon mesh upper and a quick access bungee lacing system with a cordlock.

BLACKHAWK! Products men's hiking shoes are available in sizes 6M to 14W and have an MSRP of $99.99.
