As a career firefighter, I find these to be the best boots I've owned. They are true to size, and easy on and off. They do not feel loose, or tight. They are perfect while on duty over having zipper boots. They can easily be slipped on and off when having to get in and out of turnout gear boots multiple times a shift. No need to bend over and unzip your boots before taking them off, just kick these off and put your turnout gear on. I'm on my forth year in the these boots and am finally looking into replacing them with the same kind, but i'm sure I can get another year out of these.
They need to bring back the front and rear pull straps and attach them better, as mine torn off the boots,which makes it nearly impossible to get the boots on.
I have had these for just about a year now and they have been slowly falling apart for the past 4-5 months. The boot also squeaks way too much and just seems to be getting worse. The boots are comfortable once they break in, that itself took about 2 months. I don't feel that I am extremely hard on these boots and they have not held up very well.
soul feel off on my second and third pair in under a year
This is the greatest boot on Planet Earth. This is not an exaggeration or a promotion. I bought these boots for work and were so impressed with the overall comfort of the boot and performance that I bought a second pair for off duty use.
They are clean professional and ready for any assignment. Takes 2 seconds to slip on and slip off. Literally and they ALWAYS feel secure.
My only negative is that in hot summer days like triple digit sunshine with regular or thicker socks on, your feet will burn. Switch to tactical socks or any other lighter thin aerated sock and you will be fine.
Depending on your degree of usage intensity you may experience leather wrinkles but that's normal with any leather.
Seriously. This is TRULY the greatest boot ever made for all world purpose and it still fits in with every day style.
I seriously don't understand how anyone can not almost near worship this boot.
Being part of the army guard and working full time in EMS i constantly wear boots and i must say that these are the most comfortable boots i have worn. I have noticed that after several months of wear there is a spot on the sole that is coming undone, but its only minor. I would recommend these boots to anyone working in public safety.
verry light for safty toed boots and no laces to burn with spaters. fit perfect and easy to ware.
i like the fit of the boot it's perfect and compfortable sole is soft and make it easy on hard surfaces.
These boots are great! They are comfortable, quick to put on, and look great too!
I would not recommend these boots to anyone. The design is ugly, not that big of a deal, but they aren't even designed to be functional. The heel stub that is supposed to help you from messing up the leather in the back is to high and useless. The boots come apart at the seems, the leather wrinkles and cracks just from normal everyday wear, and that is even with treating the leather with minks oil. They are hard as heck to put on even after breaking them in. Don't waste your money.
The opening of the boot was small.
