These are great boots. I'm looking at what other people are saying as far as the negative part of them and I don't understand their frustration. These work great! The uncomfortable feeling is probably coming from the difference between 6" and 8". The 6" version of this boot should be used for summer wear whereas the 8" should be used for colder temperatures. The size of sock you where also matters. I have noticed that these boots become uncomfortable when combined with wearing thick wool socks. Otherwise, I think these boots are great and I highly recommend them.
i bought these because they were out of A.T.A.C.® SAGE 8" CST BOOT (which i loved) and they were junk the nose started peeling back, the leather at the sole line ripped. i will never buy these again.
I have worn these boots everyday for the last two months. I am on my feet six to eight hours a day. It took about a week to get them good and broke in and they require a good sock. That said I put them on first thing in the morning and take them off right before bed. I have walked on concrete floors and chased down shoplifters with ease. I will get my next pair a little before actually required so I can break them in a little easier. I highly recommend these boots.
Every day use, exercise, deployment, field work
I've worn this brand boot for 5+ years. I'm on my 3rd pair. They clean up well when scuffed and durable even in Florida's salt environment.
I wear them every day hunting, hiking, around town, and working around the farm, so far it has been a great boot.
Very uncomfortable boot and heavy. I probably should have purchased one of the lighter boots.
This is a great boot. Overall I was very happy with the boot itself, and how it fit. Perfect for all professions.
I used these boots for about 3 months before the plastic toe protector started shifting around and now just over 6 months in the rubber sole is starting to come apart from the rest of the boot.
(It is possible that my pair just slipped passed there inspection and from some of the other reviews I would hope that's the case and that 5.11 will compensate me with a new pair)
Purchased the boots based on the reviews. I found the boots to be uncomfortable after walking on hard surface for hours on end. In order to make them somewhat tolerable, have to wear heavy boot socks with regular white cotton socks. Retains sweat and the odor will knock you over, whereas I dont have these problems with my Whites. Probably would have been better off with my Rockies or Bates. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE>
