According to the information, kindly provided by Mr. Oscar Velázquez, an active member of the Spanish Civil Guard, the currently used boots are made by three manufacturers: FAL, ROBUSTA and ITURRI. These boots proved to be very good, comfortable and functional.
Let's consider the boots manufactured by FAL, a Spanish company, specialized in production of professional footwear.
POLIVALENT CIVIL GUARD BOOT (BOTA POLIVALENTE DE LA GUARDIA CIVIL)
The boot's top is made of breathable and hydrophobic materials - leather and heavy-duty, cut-resistant Cordura, and features "GORE-TEX" breathable waterproof membrane. The outsole with high non-slip coefficient is made of hard rubber (vulcanized elastomer) and the polyurethane midsole provides more comfort. The out-sole tread pattern is designed to fit all types of terrain. The lacing system consists of nine pairs of speed-lacing eyelets and a pair of hook clamps for keeping the high resistance waterproof laces in proper position.
The boots are compliant with International and European standard ISO 20347: 2007 "Personal protective equipment — Occupational footwear", prepared by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), Technical Committees "Foot and leg protectors" and "Personal safety — Protective clothing and equipment".
These boots are available on the manufacturer's web-site at a price of 139,95 € (July 2017), the range of boots sizes are from 36 to 47.
The Spanish Police Intervention Units (anti-riot units) of the National Police boots are currently provided with the so-called "Bota U.I.P.", as Mr. Oscar Velázquez (Spanish Civil Guard) informs. These boots are made of high quality breathable, yet hydrophobic leather. Double density polyurethane sole is lightweight and flexible, and these boots are recommended for urban service. U.I.P. boots feature "GORE-TEX" breathable waterproof membrane, and the laces are made of waterproof cords, highly resistant to tear and wear. The lacing system consists of eight pairs of speed-lacing eyelets.
These boots are available on the manufacturer's web-site at a price of 105,95 € (July 2017), the range of boots sizes are from 36 to 47.
"Bota Nervión" are the boots, currently used by the Autonomous Police of the Basque Country (the Ertzaintza), Mr. Oscar Velázquez from Spanish Civil Guard has informed. These police boots are made of combined materials - high-quality leather and fire retardant, meta-aramid material developed by DuPont company back in the 1960-s.
Compared with the more familiar nylon, nomex (a meta-aramid polymer) is more solid and durable, however, in terms of mechanical properties and strength, nomex is inferior to Kevlar (para-aramid polymer). However nomex is characterized by excellent thermal, chemical, and radiation resistance and is widely used in creation clothing and equipment that can withstand intense heat and intended for firemen, military, space technologies, etc.
The hard rubber out-sole tread pattern with high non-slip coefficient and designed to fit all types of terrain, while the polyurethane mid-sole provides better comfort of wear. The boots also feature "GORE-TEX" breathable waterproof membrane.
The lacing system consists of seven pairs of simple round eyelets and a pair of hook clamps for keeping the high-strength, water-resistant and flame retardant laces in proper position.
The boots are compliant with International and European standard ISO 20347: 2007 "Personal protective equipment — Occupational footwear".
These boots are available on the manufacturer's web-site at a price of 129,95 € (on July 2017), the range of boots sizes are from 36 to 47.
