Good boot, but not as the photos depict. This is a green boot. Not military green, just green.
Outstanding Product. Use to go with the Converse Mil boot with runner cushion until Reebok took it over and ruined it. Found out 5.11 sells the sage green boot for duty uniform. Comfortable side zip boot. Will stick with 5.11. When will they make a tactical combat eye patch?
I was very impressed with this boot out of the box. I wore it all day the first time I put them on. Very comfortable and feet never got tired or sore from them being new.
A few years back, I did a job at McChord AFB and admired Sgt. Wesley's green boots. He envied my black 5.11 ATAK boots, couldn't get them in the green he was required to wear.
I was looking to get another pair and saw that 5.11 now has sage green. No hesitation. The color is a very subtle green with almost silvery green side panels. Very cool. These are my new "good" boots for what passes as dress for me anymore.
From my experience with the suede coyote boot, I knew they would not be as waterresistant as the smooth leather and are prone to water spotting (embarrassing when you leave a restroom), so I purchased and applied a silicone base boot protector. They shed water just fine, keep their appearance even in the Washington rain. They may have darkened just a shade, but look good.
Something else I do with all my 5.11 boots is replace the stock insole with a high quality insole that molds to my foot. Recommended to me by a podiatrist, this keeps the boots comfortable throughout their useable life, makes my back and feet much happier. Too many years of inexpensive, issue footwear and I wish I'd bought good shoes and insoles years ago. Actually, the insoles were Sgt. Wesley's suggestion originally. Now we can both have the best of both world's - sage green in a 5.11 boot.
I could be happier with these boots! I now own three pairs, I use them for all outdoor duties and just because they are that comfortable.I have shoes that weigh more then these boots. No need to break them in when you have good socks. Try 5.11 duty socks.
The boots are great, well made, comfortable right out of the box. My only issue is that the are a bit too green in color. The pic on the website did
not appear as green. reasons for this are too many to isolate. very happy with the product overall!
Very comfortable utility uniform boots!

Great online purchase with fast shipping. No issues with ordering at all. Only problem was that I bought the wrong size (not a 5.11 problem!)
I bought a pair of 5.11 boots in the past and absolutely loved them so I would definitely recommend others purchase boots from 5.11 as well!
Great Lightweight Boot. Never been much for made in China products but can't find anything similar made here in the U.S. For the money, I can't see where anyone could go wrong with these boots. I think if you try them, you will surprisingly happy.
