I got these boots to replace my station 2.0 boots since I starting working 12hr shifts instead of 24’s. They are comfortable and have plenty of ankle support. I like the weight over the 8” side zip boots. The only issue I have is that the tab to assist with pulling them on is way to small. Even unzipped I still neeed a shoe horn to get my foot in. I could unlace them instead of using the zipper but that defeats the purpose of a side zip. I’m glad I waited until coming off the 24 hour shifts. These won’t go on as quick I would have needed. Otherwise it’s a great light weight alternative to a full size boot. I do recommend them.
I was very pleased with the feel and fit of the boots. They feel very sturdy and robust, when I wore them for the first time I had them on for approximately 18 hours. Very comfortable boots! Thank you 5.11, I will be shopping again soon.
