I bought these because of a review I read, and I was NOT disappointed! There was no break-in period, they felt great right out of the box, which was awesome because I went straight to basic LEO academy after being hired. They did get scuffed up doing some prone shooting on cement, but some Kiwi polish from Wal-Mart had them looking like new again in a minute. I've been working the streets in these for one year now, and they're still holding up great! I wear compression socks all year, and in the winter just throw on an extra pair of thicker regular socks and my feet are never too cold or too hot. The water resistance is great too, and I've never struggled in the snow or the rain either with wet socks. All in all, I would highly recommend! Good luck, and stay safe.
I had been searching for almost a year, researching and reading thousands of reviews to find the perfect boot for both motorcycle riding and rally wear. A durable, tough riding boot that also looks the part, that my not-so-young feet could tolerate walking around all day on pavement, too. This is that boot! I ordered several different times to get the size right and am thankful that the customer service dept was so easy to work with, as it required 3 returns. For whatever reason, I wear a ladies size 10 and ended up with a men's size 10 to fit perfect! I spoke to law enforcement professionals and they highly recommended these. I didn't feel I needed waterproof, but it was well worth the extra money.
I did purchase a gel insole and I can walk all day long in these, to spite my bad feet. I have been wearing them for 4 months now, and they have become, not only my motorcycle boot, but my go-to boot if I will be on my feet at all. My feet love these boots! They have worn well with lots of abuse. Very durable design. The side-zip is a life-saver. I Highly recommend the boot, my only complaint is the sizing.
Easily the best boots I have ever owned. I'm on my second pair after my first pair endured two years of severe abuse. (they will last a lot longer if you take care of them) I did not maintain my old boots and they still managed to keep my feet dry but they still looked funky from my negligence which was the only reason I bought new ones...keeping my old ones for bumming around though...
I wear my new pair every day while I work sometimes 12 or more hours and my feet are never sore. I am typically a size 7-7.5 and the 7.5 fits like Cinderella's slipper. Absolutely perfect.
I bought these boots for the Police Academy, and they have become my favorite foot wear.
Theme parks, motorcycle rides, days at the range, walks around the block, days when i dont get too dressed up and throw on a pair of jeans.
I wear these boots every chance I get, because they are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned.
They performed flawlessly during the academy, and I wear them every day at work. I now manage a hardware store and am on my feet all day. The knife pocket comes in handy at work.
I also wear them for motorcycle riding, with great grip even in wet conditions, and great ankle support.
The sole slides when I put my foot in (like when I'm in a rush for those 3am medical calls) but the zip-up is so nice! Not awesome for long walks but great duty boots
Long hours walking, standing in wet conditions.
I am a full time paramedic doing 24 hr. shifts. We are busy for most of the 24 hr. shift. Being a female, it's very difficult to find boots that fit correctly. I've tried many different brand name boots and these are the first pair that I was able to wear right out of the box for 24hrs and my feet were never sore and I had a lot less fatigue in my legs and back at the end of my shift! I would recommend these boots to any female in EMS/Fire/Law Enforcement!
Great surprise on how light weight they were. Only had a week but appear to be very durable and cool for this summers use.
Great, comfortable boot! I tend to have issues with breaking shoes in and these were comfortable from the start, which was very important, as I am on my feet for the majority of my day. The zipper is awesome, quick to put on and take off.
The only downside is that they scuff easily (I have had them for less than a month and they have several scuffs already).
