Oakley S.I. ASSAULT Boot

Based on combat gear designed by Oakley for the US Army, the Oakley S.I. Assault Boot ($185) looks to be an excellent choice for post-apocolyptic footware.

Survival Straps

Made with up to 18′ of 550# military grade paracord, this is one bracelet that could really come in handy. Also available as belts, watch straps, lanyards, or key fobs, Survival Straps ($18+) are worth wearing so you can rest assured that you will always have access to an emergency length of reliable cord. Even better, if you ever do have to unwind and use your cord, the company says to just send it back to them and they’ll make you another one free of charge. Just remember to take into account how much a zombie uprising may affect the postal service while waiting for your replacement.
