Love the boot but the leather tears easily and of low quality


From Gary


I've had these boots since Dec 2015. The are comfortable and the soles still look new. That said, the leather used on these is cheaply made and weak at best. The leather tears easily. I have an office job and I'm not hard on shoes, I'm reluctant to put my trust in 5.11 boots any longer. The quality to price ratio is making me think twice before buying another 5.11 boot again. I'm currently looking to buy another pair due to all the tearing and figured I'd see if anyone else reported this issue or if I just got a defective pair of boots.
