went with these as a second choice, as the retail location was out of stock for over 2 weeks. so far they are very comfortable and I am able to stay on my feet all day at work. Break in time is very fast.
I tried a pair of these boots after watching the Scootch00 video on Youtube. He got his pair for free, but I paid for mine. I'll tell you these boots are super comfortable for walking. I just ordered 2 more pairs of the zipper Patrol boots in black and 1 tan color. 5.11 Tactical: these are great boots and I hope you keep making them!
I put them on in the 5.11 store, they felt like they could be comfortable, but I was not happy with how the tongue dug into my ankle. I was hoping it was the fact that I was not wearing boot socks but it was not, I can not imaging wearing this boot for 12 to 14 hours. I will be returning this pair
These boots are amazing. Trekked through 3 inches of water and mud last night and my feet stayed dry. These boots are very comfy and durable. 5/5 would recommend
Well I haven't seen many reviews on this boot, so I thought I would throw something up. I have only had these boots for a very short while. Here are my initial impressions. The second I put them on in the 5.11 store, they felt like a good comfortable pair of Sport shoes, not boots. They are extremely comfortable, and don't any break in. I have been wearing the competitors lightweight sports type duty boots, but have become tired of having to send them back every 4 or 5 months to exchange them due to the boot coming apart. 5.11 has finally entered the market with their version, and so far they are impressive. I can't comment on how well the new synthetic leather is going to hold up, but I will report back after some usage. With most sport shoes not using real leather any longer, I'm not really concerned. So in short, if you are wearing those other boots, but are tired of the same thing I was, but want something super light and comfortable, IMO better fitting than the others, you definitely need to check these out.
I guess I am a traditionalist. I do not like the fact that these boots are not leather. I will be returning. Fortunately, 511 has a 30 day try on with their boots. Other than not liking the fact they are not leather they feel comfortable and are true to size.
