First off, seriously 5.11? Are you actually going to just shudder an entire line that completely sold out? It's not like stores have this sitting on a shelf, they were great and sold really well. They are sold out everywhere.
The boots are awesome. I wear them in Florida, and they aren't too hot, but at the same time they have enough insulation to be comfortable down into the teens without issue. The composite toe means I don't have frozen toes in that weather without sacrificing my protection. The side zip was made with a wonderful wide tooth YKK zipper that easily zipped, couldn't bind or crimp, and was secure at all times, the strings were durable. If there was any complaint it was that the pocket was very slim, so a ticker leatherman was a squeeze, but it fit.
5.11, please at least tell us formally on the sale page if you're really killing the sage or if it is just in shortage.
I KNEW I should've bought two or three pair! I LOVE THESE BOOTS! Way better than the Converse "moon boots" or anything made by Belleville. Now that I have a boot pocket for my multi-tool I don't know how I lived without it. I've worn these out after three years of daily use - please tell me you can scrounge up a size 11R back in the warehouse...somewhere?
These boots are the Best boot I have bought and have bought since they came out several years ago. Durable, light, comfortable, easy on/off, great bang-4-buck, and great color/style.
I have purchased many boots from several manufacturers Converse, Welco, 5.11, Haix, New Balance and these are one of the best even from 5.11. I did so trying to find a durable and comfortable boot that holds up to thousands of steps per day. I work on tile floors in a large store and 10K steps can be a daily occurrence. These are the best boot I've found and it pains me to see these go. Hopefully an equal or better replacement is coming soon.
I love the boots, except the left boot is undersized. Usually the right foot is larger then the left, for most people. In that case, the right boot is usually tight. Not so with my pair. The left boot is too tight on my small toe.
Best Boots Ever!!
Absolutely love how they feel!! Been in the air force 6 years, best boots to date. Good job 5.11 Tactical!!!
this is a really great boot. lasted me forever and i am rough as hell on boots. mud, muck, water. the whole nine yards
Boots fell apart after 6 months, inside and out. Waste of money.
These boots are great for daily use along with indoor/outdoor work. Keep in mind that these boots breathe incridibly well and working in wet conditions will result in soaked feet. They are very fast to "slip-and-zip" and you are out the door! These are the first boot I've owned that you can comfortably run in. I'd recomend these boots for anyone who can use the support of a 8" boot, and the flexibility of a running shoe. Absolutely hands down worth the money!
Great boot. They could be a couple pounds lighter.
