These Kevlar Shoes are (Almost) Bulletproof

Kevlar shoes should be standard issue for anyone with a gun, since it seems like everyday we hear about some idiot literally shooting himself in the foot. While the O.A.M.C.'s Kevlar Radial Low shoes might not actually solve this ridiculous problem facing gun owners (they shot the crap out of their shoes to find out), they're still one tough set of kicks.


But in all fairness to the shoes, we kind of think the brand went a little overboard in their product testing. They shot them a tons of times with an M4 carbine — which has a muzzle velocity of 2,900 feet per second — instead of a single much less powerful handgun bullet.
