I paid for 48 hour delivery and got 72 hour delivery, but I was happy with the boots. I wear them every work day and I am on my feet for nearly 10 hours each of those days, so I know about good foot gear. These are really good duty boots.

I enjoy this product and will be happy to purchase another pair. I do not feel that they hold a shine as well as I would expect. They also do not shine super well either. I also had to purchase a set of custom insoles, but I would do that with any boot of any brand.

Only had these for a week but 5.11 wants a review. They seem comfortable enough but it's really too soon to tell what kind of quality they are. We'll see if they last. I was not overly impressed with the last pair of 5.11 ATAC boots that I had because the soles became very hard and slippery in cold weather. Also the sole started to separate after only a few months. I'm giving them another chance because I appreciate the discount through NAEMT.

Most comfortable boots I've ever had. Ready for duty straight out of the box. They keep my feet cool in the heat and warm in the cold. The only bad thing I can say is that after a week of use, they need to be tightened up a little. Aside from that, I need to keep telling myself that they my duty boots and not for everyday casual use. Even though they could be used for off-duty.

This seems to be a fine boot indeed. To date I have only been wearing them for a couple of weeks but I am very pleased with this pair of boots. I have checked around and found the same/simular boot for a cheaper price but with their shipping expense it all seems to equal out. And the free shipping and time to recieve the product was very good. One con and/or thing I did notice was the laces, they are very thin I usually prefer a thick lace. Other than that a fine product.

I am a Environmental and Wetland Scientist. There is a lot of hiking in rugged and wet terrain involved with my job. These boots perform better than others I have owned which were specifically designed for wetland work. They are lite, comfortable, waterproof, and relatively inexpensive.

I've had these boots for over a year, 6 months of that year were on a foot beat at an amusement park. Comfortable, light, still waterproof, stood in a 4 inch deep stream from a broken watermain. Kept my feet dry. Sole doesn't last.
