Ive been wearing the same VERY worn desert boots to train the military and military candidates since 1989 because Modern desert boots and even the active duty issued boots are what I call ADMIN ONLY boots. Not in the field boots. Put on the New Skyweights and for the first time a modern pair of boots is built to hit the ground running. I spend many hours per week in the Sand, on the road and in the water with candidates and these are very simply, the best boots I've put on since I put on my original issue 2 decades ago. Well done 5.11! Hooyah!
All I can say is wow, it very comfortable, once you get the right size. Sky weight is very light I feel like I'm wearing a pair of tennis shoe, very agile, these boot are very high quality made and well with the price. I bought 2 pair, they even have orthopedic memfoam inserts. Just make sure you get 1 size larger do to bangladashes measuring system seams to be off by 1/2 a size.
