Its good for everyday


From Preston


This is a comfy boot with lots of toe room and a comfortable fit. The problem with these boots is that they are put out there as a boot for work use (tac/warrant/etc), but they just don't seem to have the feel of a tac boot. The sole is mushy, which is great for sitting at a desk or driving a car, but I am weary to trust these during real work/deployment. 3 stars was best I could do because I expected more. Glad I purchased from a wholesaler and only paid $80, or I would have given 2 stars.

Great For A While


From John


I've owned these boots for nearly a year and have been wearing them every day as they are the most comfortable and practical boot that I own. With that being said, the boot is starting to fail with the rubber sole separating from the nylon section in the middle of the boot. Assuming they're most likely out of warranty, I took the liberty of using a urethane based glue to try and put it back together and keep it from spreading (this is the same glue I use in the shop when gluing a new door skin on a car door for repairs. Hopefullly I'll be able to get some more use out of them.

I love these boots but they fall apart!!


From David


I bought a pair and wore them for three months. They fell apart at the seams on the sides. I gave them the benefit of doubt and bought the second pair. The same thing happened. My closet looks like a 511 store. I really felt bad when customer service said take them back to where you bought them. Where I bought them said see 511. I am done with this. So sad that 511 brands will let quality control slip for pure profit. They make great stuff but these shoes fall apart with less than normal use.

Fell apart


From Ryan


The boots were comfortable but they fell apart after a month of wear. The only time I wore them was walking around town.

Sizing off and Construction workmanship terrible


From Max


Bought these at the Las Vegas store location during Shot Show 2016. It took less than 2 weeks for the canvas to pull away from the boot along the rubber edge right behind the toe box. Not in one place, but both the inside and outside of the boot.

I spend alot of money on the pants and shirts for work over the years, but I have to say the quality of some of the products has taken a drastic decline once manufacturing becomes more quantity over quality and is outsourced.

It is an easy design fix though, simply extending a small suede strip from across the rear of the toe box to the heel, along the bottom of the canvas where it meets the rubber sole would probably fix a good deal of the issue. It seems like where the rubber meets the canvas is the weak spot and once it starts to fray then the boot disintegrates very quickly.

As well, being told to take them back to the point of sale for an exchange (1300+ miles away now) is completely unrealistic, nor would I exchange for the same model. It happened once and based on other reviews here, it is a poor design flaw. I am stuck with a very poor boot that might make it for 24 hours with the dog as a chew toy. An expensive chew toy at that.

Pretty comfortable


From 9x19 gunner

from Massachusetts

Well, I usually wear these a lot during the week, wearing them at the range,or when I expect to be on my feet for a while, hunting etc the uses are endless.

Comfortable, but not strong enough.


From konnor

from Latvia

Very comfortable to wear, very breathable. This would be the dream boots, if the quality was better.
Glued parts started to blow apart after 3 weeks wearing.
After a month nylon pulled away from suede.

And guys... Read the specification. Where are "YKK® side zippers"? The description doesn't correspond the reality.

Wouldn't buy again.


From Justin

from PA

I wear these boots everyday, at work, at home, everywhere I go, They fit well and are very comfortable but after about six months every seam started fraying or falling apart. I guess I can't expect a whole lot for the price but won't be buying if I have to replace them as soon as I did.

100% satisfied



from Illinois

I have worn these boots every day since they arrived. I have had many different types/brands of boots but never a pair of 5.11s. They've been put to the test over the last 45 days and I am impressed. Very comfortable right out of the box and more and more each day. Sizing was accurate. The distressed model is very "low key". Overall very satisfied with my purchase. May be ordering another pair just in case they get discontinued.

Would be nice if they didn't fall apart


From Gabe

from Richmond, VA

Before writing my review off as a one-off or a cranky customer who got a lemon... I had two pairs of these same boots fail on me in less than a month. Each time the stitching blew out, since much of the shoe is held together with glue as opposed to being properly stitched together. I used these for light range use and every day use (walking around a city), since they did not last me long enough to use for anything else.

The first pair lasted me less than three days, the second pair lasted less than two weeks. 5.11 customer service was incredibly helpful and responsive, but these boots are awful.
