This boot looks good, and is built good, however it is extremely narrow compared to normal footwear. Hoping it stretches out...
I love the way the shoe lookes but the inside is way to tight to the point were its uncomfortable. the length is fine but the toes are to tight. I dont think a larger size would help. Not true to size at all. The most akward fitting shoe I ever tried.
This boot is more like a high end shoe. It doesn't have the same "Boot" feel but more of a nice running shoe. I wear these as a daily wear shoe at the gun shop. I also wear them at range days. I do a lot of running in them, they hold up nice for a boot. NOT A RUNNING SHOE, but perfect for training.
If you don't buy this boot -- The enemy wins.
I've owned a few different pairs of 5.11 boots and loved all them. I ordered these and the pursuit chukka. I was very excited for them but they simply do not fit. I wear a 10.5 regular in just about all shoes I've ever worn. I can sometimes fit a 10 in some instances but the width of these and the length is off. I can't even walk around in these they are so tight in width and internal height. I had to double check the box because I thought they may had been for women. Also the chukka's were very off too I couldn't even get my foot inside them. See my picture for the comparison of my 3 year old tac trainers from below. At the most narrow point the tac trainers are 3.35in and the range masters are 2.8in. At the widest the tac trainers are 4.5in and the range masters are 4.15in. These are for a 10.5 in each externally.
Finally, shoes that compliments the 5.11 Tacticle shirt and pants apparel very nicely and looks stylish and cool. Color-
coordinated to match work apparel. Only if they would make a TDU Green colored one, that would complete the color coordination scheme. Expensive, but well worth the buy. Bought all 3 shoe colors.
Essentially, this is an athletic sneaker. This shoe looks & feels great. It has a stiff heel and rigid construction. The finger pull tab is over-sized which really helps when slipping your foot in. Overall it feels very well made & just flat out looks cool. It's expensive, but it was worth the buy.
