These shoes were made for walking, not bullets.

ENDO posted up a video testing out OAMC (Over All Master Cloth) kevlar shoes. They put it to the test, with an M4. The video is visually stunning, like the shoes. However they do not hold up well to the M4 test.

    Kevlar is not just there for bulletproofing thing, especially not against rifle caliber fire. Its just a regular strong fabric.

      Yup. Anything is bulletproof if there is enough of it – heck air is bulletproof if you have a several thousand yards of it between you and the target – and the converse is true.

    Of course it doesn’t work, he shoots the side. But look closely: it says “made in France”.

    The bulletproof part is on the back ๐Ÿ˜€

    does the fact that there is no foot or anything giving them any structure aside from flimsy thin layer of fabric affect the validity of this test?

    • bbmg

      You could have filled the shoes with ballistic gelatin and the bullets would have gone through anyway.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Ok shoes, buw sweet Surefire micro, that’s a far better use of the $868.

    Since when would someone expect kevlar to withstand a level III+ threat?

  • LCON

    and that’s Why We cant have Nice Things !

  • gunslinger

    i thought that the reason kevlar vests work is that they have mutliple layers criss-crossed (or something like that)

    these shose are what? 1/10th the thickness of BPVests?
