I wore these boots over 4 years before the zipper on the boots quit would highly recommend these boots
To get an 8" side-zip, waterproof safety boot for such an affordable price is great, but they are a bit too tight to accommodate any aftermarket insoles. A bit more width would make these perfect, in my opinion.
I am a correction officer and these boots do not hold up to a lot of walking and standing on concrete
I got issued these for work. I am a female, and unfortunately my work did not offer these in the female boot. I normally wear a 6 in men's. The 6 was too small, so I upped a size to a 6.5. As they have broken in they have grown EXTREMELY wide for my feet. I can jiggle and slide my foot around in the boots. I am not sure why just a half size difference in these boots is so great, but I am not impressed by this. Maybe this is normal?
I have had tried many different brands of duty boots; bates, rocky, etc. When I had my first pair of these boots, they were the most comfortable and easily broke in with no problems. Used to work 12 hour shifts with no problems with these boots, last three years in the Florida weather (heat, humidity and water) My second pair lasted almost four years. So I don't understand where others have had problems. Just wish the price would come down a bit. Since I no longer work in Law Enforcement (due to injury) I still wear these boots (the last pair was is coyote) and they have lasted four years. I hope 5.11 does not change anything with these boots.
I bought these 10 months ago, my first pair of leather boots. Now i don't get into much water or grease or even farm work, I use them for motorcycling and work. I am dissapointed that the leather has cracked and broken where my toe bends and the sole has started seperating. (Remember to consider that I never oiled them). Overall not bad for the price I'm sure they'll last long if you oil them.
very well built and lightweight best boot ive found for under $100.00
I wear these daily at school, when I'm out walking, just whenever I'm going outside really and they feel absolutely great, they broke in very fast and now they feel more comfortable then some sneakers I've worn, I will definitely continue to buy these boots for the future
These boots have been great,I work as an automotive technician,ride a motorcycle and love getting out in the woods and this one pair of footwear takes care of all of it. The boots are much better than the bates tactical sport they replaced,comfort is awesome,the leather is of excellent quality and cleans up easily,the zipper is heavy duty,slip resistance is pretty good"
I am a EMS provider in West Virginia, I am constantly switching environments and climbing through Snow/Ice, Wreckage/Debris, concrete, dirt, mud. These boots are by far the best in the industry in my opinion, everyone that I have recommended these boots to have absolutely loved them. I've had my first pair for a year and decided to order another set to replace them, in the conditions we work in I was extremely impressed.
