I work in a jail setting, walking on concrete for 12 hours a day. The boots started off adequately, were comfortable and light. They broke down in a hurry. The rep at our local supply store said they would last at least a year. Not the case. If there ever was a shank, it does not feel like its there now. There is no support left and my feet and ankles hurt at the end of each shift. They are not covered under warranty, as it is past 30 days and were bought at a vendor, not directly from 5.11. Only guy these boots if you want to replace them in 3 months.
I have had these boots for a few months. Took a few days for them to break in, but thats expected. I use these for work. I am a field service tech and spend about 10 hrs a day in these boots. They are waterproof, not to hot, even in the Florida weather, and feel like I am wearing tennis shoes. Best boots I have owned.
I found this to be a great boot- very comfortable and great for varied terrain.
Bought these boots cause I needed something that could withstand me being on my feet all day. I'm in LE and needed something I could also wear with my uniform. After a few days of wearing them, the area inside around where your ankle sits started to rub. After looking inside that is the same spot where two materials are stitched together. They should have stitched it and made the extra material face the outside of the boot instead of the inside.
