How to Tie Tactical or Hiking Boots PROPERLY for Military & Airsoft


Hey, what’s up brothers, Viper here and today I’m going to teach you all the secrets you have to know about using these in these. For any kind of outdoor activity its an absolute necessity to have a good tactical or outdoor boot. But as long as you don’t lace your boots properly you still might experience some serious discomfort. Our experience comes from the airsoft world but also from the shoe industry. With this knowledge we’ve come up with one specific way to tie your boots In order that they can provide you the best kind of stability but also the best comfort possible. We’ve also implemented a slight adjustment for people with a high arch type of foot. Now, how to determine this? This can simply be done by tying your boots the way you used to and if you feel like the top of your boot is too narrow on your feet then you actually have a high arch type of foot. To start off, make sure you use the right kind of socks and also use the right kind of laces. All this information and much more can be found in another video we’ve already put together. We will put the link in the description down below. Start off by putting your heel properly to the back end of your boot. This way your foot can’t move around freely when going downhill when your boot is properly laced. Divide your boot into 2 sections. Namely one for the front of your foot and one for your ankle. The one for the front of your foot allows you to make it as tight as you like in order to provide your foot the right amount of space and the right amount of comfort. The one for your ankle provides your ankle with the right kind of ankle stability. In order to lock these two separate sections, you can simply use a double loop. For people with a high arch type of foot, you can simply bypass the pressure point to remove the tension. Next comes the “4-point locking mechanism”. This way your ankle is stabilized, with the tension divided over your whole ankle. You also prevent making a bottleneck, because you never over-tighten your boot and also won’t be able to cut of blood circulation like that. At last we have the knot. For this we use the our so called “no-worry knot”. This knot will not come loose in any kind of situation, and will also not become stuck due to clamping or moisture. This knot is also very easy to untie. Thanks for watching this video, hope this was educational.

  1. I really love your channel, high quality videos, interesting and helpful recommandation, overall a great package, but there is one thing i would recommend you to change. Inorder to achieve your mission to make airsoft a more wellknown sport, you need to adress a bigger audience, since most of the people who find your channel already play airsoft and are looking for advice on a special topic. In order to get more people to visit your channel I would recommend you to not only focus on airsoft, but also outdoor sports and activities, like camping, hiking, survival tipps, stuff like that. this way you get more people wqtch your channel which increases views and subs, as well as introduce new people who never had contact to airsoft before. For example you make a video about tents, how to set them up, what tents to buy, tipps and so on. First of all it helps airsofters as well since then sometimes do need tents in milsim, plus people who are just here for camping sub to your channel and watch other videos, that way some might find interest in airsoft. So its a win win situation, new subs, more views, more contentideas and new airsoft players. So all that stuff like, how to make a camp fire, how to cook food while camping, multitool reviews, tent reviews, sleeping bags all that stuff. Help people who play airsoft and gets new people to play airsoft
