This review is for sales management. Tweaks needed are: 1/ Heel strike sole area slightly too protruding. 60 grit sandpaper on a block reduced its prominence. 2/ I was very disappointed that I could not remove or put on the boot merely by the use of the zipper! With the zipper down completely, lower laces still had to be loosened to get my heel in and out. 3/ Wide sizes esp. 10.5 - 12, need to be slightly wider and have more height across the front portion of the boot. Going to a larger size, oversizes the heel pocket, reducing heel control.
I have purchased 3 pairs of these boots now and I will continue to purchase them in the future. Absolutely perfect fit and very comfortable. These are the lightest and longest lasting boot I have warn. I would say that these boots last about 1.5 -2 years per pair for me. The laces have lasted pretty much the same length of time. My advice to 5.11 is, please do not change this boot.
Just started a new security job that they wanted me to wear a boot with a shine but something I could walk in all night and these boots fit the bill! High quality boot!
I bought these boots because they are lightweight and are also CSA approved. Caution !! very hot to wear especially in direct sunlight and after 2 shifts in the rain NOT waterproof.
I took a chance on this boot never having heard of this company. I'm flat footed and spent a lot of time on my feet so foot comfort is important. They were true to size so if you wear an 11 tennis shoe order an 11 and that's what will fit and they synched up nicely out of the box and are getting better as they break in, I have put in many hours of overtime with them and they are really impressive. Definitely worth the gamble.
I had this boot for about 10 Years!, I worked ems fire, and police multi comfort boot and very reliable. The only thing i had done to the boots while i had them was resole them and inserts, they got to the point i had to toss them out but b4 i did ordered a pair of others. I sure will last also this long great product!!! WORTH THE COST!!!!!!!!
This boot is not rugged enough for running every day. Good for walking. Once I started running daily, the heel cup padding fell apart.
I got these boot because I thought that if it's tough enough for solders and police it should be good for a delivery driver. I drive 300 plus miles a day and may stop up to 70 times a day to walk up to houses, barns, apartments, and businesses. I work in all weather here in Illinois. I have never owned a pair of boots that have stayed water proof for 2 years and even after they have started falling apart.(See pictures) The soles are almost completely flat. And they have no traction anymore but are somehow still comfortable! I wear these boots 6-7 days a week all year long! They are WELL used and I will be replacing them very soon with another pair of the same, but only because of the soles. I wish the soles were lasted longer. Everything else about them have been amazing.
Curently own my second pair of these boots and am ordering a similar pair with a safety toe. My first pair lasted 3 years of every day wear and for the first 6 months of their life was worn for a 5 mile run at least once a week. I do recommend regular polish as my second set does not appear as nice as my first since I slacked off on polishing them.
the boots don't hold up the inner parts have compacted they feel like a size 10.5 (they are a "9" boot and have done this after less than 2 months of ware) and the outer sole on the left boot has worn faster than that of the right boot odd as I rest on my right foot more often this is 2 times in a row i have been dissapointed by recentyly made poducts by 511..... i think ill save my time and money and go back to a $300 leather combat boot atleast those stay the same size.....
