"Boots - Rated 7A for bullet proofness, explosives, cuts, stabs and impacts. Provides medium level protection from heat and toxic sources too."
Special Forces Boots are boots made by Rubicon Industries along with its Special Forces Series. It is very useful for the starting levels and with good augments can be used well up to level 20 and up.
They are known for being very easy to get past level 5 and are found to be very useful as they have decent stats in most areas. The normal one is good for low levels, though unless you have nothing better, they are not to be kept past level 20 or so when better boots are available (unless you like hoarding stuff or it has amazing Augments compared to other gear you get).
The and variants can be very useful for their obtainable level and can be very useful for rushing and guarding alike as they have no movement penalty and decent stats. However, defense augments will do very little to improve your protection, unless you have the version of these.
