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>

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.
