The Mantreads are a community-created secondary weapon for the Soldier. They are a pair of dark brown tanker boots.

When equipped, the Mantreads reduce the knockback received from damaging weapons by 75%; this does not apply to the player's own weapons and so does not impede rocket jumping. This also does not affect a Pyro's airblast. In addition, whenever the player lands on an enemy, if the fall was long enough to cause fall damage to the player, the enemy will be dealt triple the fall damage the player would normally have received, and the player takes no fall damage. Successfully landing on an enemy will be indicated by a unique sound and the Soldier's view will appear to shake. The Mantreads do not take effect if the player lands on a building. The knockback reduction still works on Sentry Guns. The fall does not have to occur from rocket jumping in order to deliver damage.
