Combat boots are a type of boot worn by soldiers in combat, typically black with laces, thick rubber soles, and rise above the ankle. While these were originally intended to be worn in combat situations, they have been popularized in modern style as a footwear option in much more casual contexts than combat. Tactical boots differ from combat boots in that they are thinner, lighter, and more flexible, so they're easier for activities that involve a lot of movement. Tactical boots are often marketed as boots used for the outdoors, whereas combat boots are most frequently simply a style choice.
