I've had these for about a year now, and they have held up better than other "work" shoes. That said, I have an office job with some field work.
I did find that walking all day isn't the most comfortable, but that is more an issues of the laces.
The traction is great for wet/snow/ice conditions. and I haven't had the issues of the sole separating like I do with pretty much every other shoes I've owned.
4-star for the fact that the laces need redesigned for better comfort.
Bought a pair and they started off tight. But with all good products I wore them in and they fit great and feel awesome. Great shoes, glad I bought them.
I purchased this shoe in a size larger than I normally take. I tried it on and it felt 1-2 whole sizes too small. I didn't realize 5.11's return policy is limited to 30 days. I contacted 5.11 to see if I could exchange my shoes for an even larger size, which was in stock. I was told that their policy limited exchanges to 30 days. So, my fault for missing their rigid deadline. However, I just want to warn future buyers of ANY 5.11 shoes, their sizing is terribly inconsistent from style to style. IF you buy a pair that doesn't fit right be sure to return it immediately or you will be stuck with it. If you look up the negative shoe reviews on this site the number one complaint about 5.11 shoes is their inconsistent sizing. 5.11 really needs to sit down with their Chinese manufacturers and get this problem fixed. It is a longstanding complaint about their shoes. While I have ordered a lot of their clothes and been very satisfied with them, I have made the personal decision to no longer buy their shoes, at least until I see the number of "very poor fit" complaints significantly decrease. My "1 star" rating is about 5.11's inconsistent shoe sizing problem. I have no comment on the other quality aspects of these shoes, simply because I cannot wear them and could not exchange them (again, my fault) for a size that fit and which would allow me to wear and critique them.
I've purchased these shoes because I wanted to wear something comfortable. I wanted a shoe like sneaker. I wanted comfort with a professional look. These shoes look great and feel great as well. I will be purchasing them in the future. THEY ARE TRUELY WONDERFUL. However, they are not for those with very wide feet.
Perhaps one of the best fitting shoes I have ever owned. Very comfortable. I am finally able to spend a full day on my feet without any pain. Highly durable.
Comfortable, smart-looking lace-up shoe. Good fit, traction and support. Wouldn't run a marathon in them, but great for the range, office or casual wear.
These shoes were true to fit for me. The design is excellent. Best worn with 511 ABR Training Socks. They are extremely comfortable. I use a sports orthopedic insert to supplement for increased arch support. The laces took a little getting used to due to their unique design, but they work quite well. I use these daily for work, training and casual wear. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone.
The shoes were tight and I bought a size larger than I wear. The laces snapped within the first 3 weeks. These shoes also have little to no support in them and cause fatigue to set in extremely quickly if you're on your feet for a prolonged amount of time.
