Footwear Armor


One of the main area's of trauma for puncture and blast wounds is the feet and lower legs and pelvic area.

If you know of any existing armored boot or orthotic systems that can help protect these high risk areas please list them here.

Your feedback on the system would be appriciated.

I have actually played around with these a fair bit.  A person can RUN in these!

I'm kind of surprised no one makes a boot with a frag rated insole.....


A set of Gaiters with even minor ballistic protection could help with frag/shrapnel injury.  Maybe youve got yourself a million $ idea here..
