I got this pair of boots from my local supplier on a Monday, just before work. I drove straight to the Office, put them on, and tossed my old boots. After a ten-hour vehicle patrol, (with numerous posts that required walking), I still felt great. The boots were already broken in. Two weeks of continuous use later, and they still feel amazing.

Once these boots were broken in, they are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. My last two pairs of boots were from Oakley. The 1st pair I had from them were great and held on for 6 years, then came the second pair which barely lasted 2 years. So I tried a new brand and I am extrememly happy I did.

I'm big on comfort, and these boots, fit the bill. I used to wear my Nike Shox all time, not anymore. After wearing Army issue combat boots for a long time, my A.T.A.C. 8" Side Zip Boots, are a dream come true. I have yet to find anything wrong with them.

Awful quality

By Dmitrii

from Saint-Petersburg, Russia

Pros

  • Good sole

Was this a gift?

  • No

Cons

  • Sole wears out quickly
  • Falls apart easily
  • Bad Crease

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • 1-3 months

Best Uses

  • Everyday wear

Everyday wear, no extreme use, warm and a bit cold weather (from 0 to +5 C in one city and about +15 C in other city).
After a 2 weeks of everyday use sole began to wear out. Brought boots to 5.11 retailer in Saint-Petersburg, it was recommended to repair boots for free. Ok, they made it. After about a month sole began to wear out again, also, after about a month and half backcloth of left boot started to fray and I got a hole in lining. Was abroad, so when returned to Russia, brought boots to retailer again, asking to change boots with additional payment to other model. Got an answer like "we can repair it or make independent expertise". So I prefer to wear this boots till the end of season and than drop'em in nearest trash can.
It's a first 5.11 product of bad quality I've seen, and I'm very surprised with a such an attitude of official retailer. Even in unofficial shops it's normal to change a product of clearly seen bad quality. So, I hope that it's only a problem of russian retailer and not an attitude of 5.11 Tactical.

The crease on the front which is normal for most shoes was not normal on this shoe. There was a bind in the crease which is causing the leather to peel on the crease. I've only used this shoe three times and this is happening.
