Warson Brands, manufacturers of military and tactical footwear, and W. L. Gore & Associates, inventor of GORE-TEX fabric, have a new line of waterproof footwear for hot weather, the Reebok KRIOS Series.

Made in the United States and scheduled to hit stores in spring 2015, the Reebok Krios keeps feet cool and comfortable in hot environments and dry in wet conditions. The Gore-Tex fabric provides breathability and keeps it lightweight.

Fused protective layers reduce bulk, minimize absorption and dry quickly, preventing added weight in wet conditions. The Krios’s construction absorbs 90 percent less water when compared to non-waterproof boots, the company said.

The boots are available in an 8-inch mil-spec boot in desert tan, black, sage green and coyote. Features include a speed lacing system and electrical hazard protection.

Reebok military and tactical footwear is available now through select duty uniform retailers throughout the United States. For more information about the Reebok Krios, visit their website.
