Robusta Travertino GTX boot – Review

Robusta Travertino GTX boot

In this little post I am going to talk about another Robusta boot. This boot is the Robusta Travertino GTX boot. The Robusta Travertino GTX boot is a new boot to the U.K market. The boot is made in Spain by a Spanish company called Robusta footwear. All of the Robusta range is made in Spain including the Robusta Travertino GTX boot. This boot is a great boot and in this post I am going to explain why.

 

Robusta Travertino GTX boot – Introduction and Specification

The Robusta Travertino GTX boot is a 9inch, all leather combat boot that is completely waterproof. This is what the boot is in short but it is so much more then that. I am going to explain what it has and how it will help police officers on shift. The Robusta Travertino GTX boot is a 9inch boot. Being 9inch it offers more ankle support then most boots. This is a good thing as it will support the ankles and you are much less likely to twist it. The Robusta Travertino GTX boot has full grain leather. Full grain leather is great as it is high grade and real. This makes the boot more durable and easier to clean and maintain. The boots have Gore-Tex technology. This makes the boot fully waterproof but at the same time makes it breathable. Most waterproof boots are not that breathable but this boot with Gore-Tex technology keeps your feet dry and aired out. This will get your feet comfortable in any conditions that get throw at you. The sole unit in the boot is a special A.D.E sole system. This is a nice touch as it is designed for comfort and to be slip resistant. We the last thing a police officer needs on shift is to be slipping all over the place. The Robusta Travertino GTX boot has a heel and ankle protector that is designed to protect your foot from any sudden impact. This helps as you will not get any injury on your feet.

All in all I feel that the Robusta Travertino GTX boot was designed with a police officers job in mind. I think it is a boot that is defiantly getting.

 

 Robusta Travertino GTX boot – a view from some else in the job

A colleague of mind also tried these boots while on shift. here you can read what he thinks about them so you do not get bored of me talking about them. He had them for two weeks and here is what he said about them

 

“After a week of ‘on the beat’ abuse the boots coped well and although they may not feel as lightweight as some other offerings, if you need a solid duty boot with good ankle support and waterproofing they seem to be a good option. The boots themselves were off good quality construction and they look like they’ll survive a healthy amount of abuse. My only advise to purchasers would be try on the boots before you buy as it would appear the off the shelf sizing is slightly on the tight side.”

As you can see the boots did cope well just bear in mind bout the sizing.

This offers protection from any impact on robusta-Marmol-GTX-bootthe ankle. The boot is made from full grain leather and a nylon panel. The full grain leather is great as it is high grade and will not wear quick.

This technology is fully Waterproof but it keeps the boot breathable as well. This is a huge factor as your feet will stay nice and cool as well as staying dry.

Robusta Circon GTX boot- review

 Robusta Circon GTX boot

In this post I am going to be reviewing a pair of Robusta Circon GTX boot. Robusta boots are new to the U.K market. They have been in the E.U since 2000. Robusta boots are issued to many police forces and armed forces in the E.U but I will not be surprised if you have not heard of them at all. The robusta Circon GTX boot is there main patrol boot.

 Robusta Circon GTX boot- Introduction

The Robusta Circon GTX boot has been designed with patrolling mind. The boot looks like a basic boot, a plain black all leather boot. I myself quite like the look as it is nice and simple and with it being all leather it is easy to clean and shine up when needed. The Robusta Circon GTX boot has a deep set sole which looks like it will last a long time before you need new boots. Look wise the Robusta Circon GTX boot is simple but has good reasons for selecting this look.

Robusta Circon GTX boot – Spec

The Robusta Circon GTX boot has a lot of technology in it for the price you would pay for the boot. The GTX in the name of the boot means it is a Gore-Tex boot. Having Gore-Tex in the boot make the boot fully waterproof as well as breathable. This is great as on duty you will have nice cool dry feet. No one likes having wet feet, no one.

The Circon also has a A.D.E sole system which is designed to give traction and comfort for a long period of time. This is great as you can give chase without worrying about falling over at all. The sole also has a non bending sysetem. This sounds bad at first but is actually designed to prevent one of the most common injuries while wearing boots. This sole system stops the foot from twisting under lateral torsion which stops injuries in the foot.

The Robusta Circon GTX boot also contains a shock absorbingheel which is great as it protects the heel from taking any direct  from falls.

The insole on this boot has little bobbles on it. At first I was not to sure about this but after walking in them for a while I realised that they actually message your feet while you are walking. The reason the boot does this is to keep the blood flowing in your feet as well as the air getting around the boot to keep it fresh.

The Robusta Circon GTX boot has great spec that will suit all police offers and is perfect for duty.

Robusta Circon GTX boot- Where can I get them?robusta boots

The Robusta Circon GTX boot is made in Spain and you will not find them in many places in the U.K. I could only find one store that sells these boots and that is Patrolstore.com. I think they have them exclusively to the U.K but don’t take my word on that. At £85 I think these boots are great. They have the right spec, look and price for all police officers.
