Used these during police academy. Wish I would have had them 30 year ago when I worked as a firemedic! Now usintng them as a Mounted Reserve Sheriff. Love them! More comfy than cowboy boots in the saddle.
Super uncomfortable boots. They make my feet hurt. Had them for a month and a half , I though I would get used to them by now,but NO. Had to get shoe insole to make them tolerable and they bend an awkward manner they budder your feet. If I could return them I would.
I wear them every work day and I do a lot of walking. My feet feel amazing and I feel as though I could walk all day if I had to. My pair before this one lasted three years! I love them.
These were a gift for my daughter. She liked the way mine looked, so she wanted a pair. She really likes them,
Best side zip boots EVER!
I've been wearing various boots in the military for 13 yrs and these are the best I have ever had. I got these specifically for 4 months of Officer Candidate school training during the winter and they were exceptional! They require zero break in period and keep your feet warm all day long in outside winter tempatures. They also provide great arch support and the zipper is perfect for putting them on quickly. I don not usually write reviews on items but I cannot express how impressed I am with these. Worth every penny.
I'm not an officer or anything like that, but saw how well my husband's boots held up to his patrols on his site and decided that I wanted to try them out myself. I have back issues so I was a bit worried since I had never wore boots because of this, instead these were very comfortable and I wear them everyday. They have helped with a lot of my back pain and are very light so they don't pull on me as I walk. I was scared of the cost at first but if I had known I would have gotten so much out of them I would have ordered them a long time ago.
This turned out to be the most uncomfortale boot I have tried to date. In the past I have used SWAT brand half zipper and Rockies. This shoe gave me blisters after wearing them for a half day. I had to take them off anfter 4 hour as I coud not walk. THE SWAT and Rockie boot did not feel this way when I first purchased them.
I have always had a good experience with 5.11
Used this same boot in the 5-month academy and have used it on patrol for over 2 years. As comfortable as the first time put on. Initially, they feel tight, but you don't want loose boots to avoid blisters; loosen up after first week's wear. No double-up'ing on socks required. Comfortable, even after 12, 13, 14+ hour-shifts. Only bought a new pair because the tread was less than 1/4" left. Would buy again and highly recommend this boot.
Would recommend trying boot on for sizing, prior to purchase; I found that the 10-size (my normal size) felt too big; went with the 9-size and fits like a glove.
