These are extremely comfortable to walk in with no break-in period. I have old knees, so not a big hiker. I walk twice a day, 2-3 miles with my dog with no knee pain. They have all the protection of a boot with a foot-feel similar to a sneaker. Maybe that’s why I like the 6” height, it protects the ankles without losing flexibility.
My only issue was the sizing. I own a pair of XPR 3.0 in a size 12 and they fit perfectly! These were far too tight across the toe-knuckle area and I had to return them for a size 13. (They don’t come in a wide)
Bought these at the Navy Exchange. Comfortable but the right foot started hurting. After much use, I was going to replace the insoles. To my surprise, I had two left insoles!! Called 5.11 and they pretty much blamed the exchange. Bought new insoles. Have not had them long enough to see if they fall apart as some of the other reviews.
Picked these up at my local NEX. Really comfortable and light. would definitely recommend buying
This boot is very comfortable, sort of a high top sneaker feel. They are similar to the Nike Woodside 2 boot without the waterproofing. The style is ideal for daily use; however they don't feel like a durable boot. From other reviews it stands that they aren't durable. 5.11 has a reputation for quality products and I hope that this fits the bill. I will be using these mainly for range training and hiking so they will get put to the test.
I love these boots I like 8" work boots usually but for casual I like the 6" boot and it feels like a sneaker. You can run in then in a pinch I hike in them all the time and do long walks. they are also great at the range and for training. Light weight and they move great. I highly recommend them.
This is a comfy boot with lots of toe room and a comfortable fit. The problem with these boots is that they are put out there as a boot for work use (tac/warrant/etc), but they just don't seem to have the feel of a tac boot. The sole is mushy, which is great for sitting at a desk or driving a car, but I am weary to trust these during real work/deployment. 3 stars was best I could do because I expected more. Glad I purchased from a wholesaler and only paid $80, or I would have given 2 stars.
I've owned these boots for nearly a year and have been wearing them every day as they are the most comfortable and practical boot that I own. With that being said, the boot is starting to fail with the rubber sole separating from the nylon section in the middle of the boot. Assuming they're most likely out of warranty, I took the liberty of using a urethane based glue to try and put it back together and keep it from spreading (this is the same glue I use in the shop when gluing a new door skin on a car door for repairs. Hopefullly I'll be able to get some more use out of them.
I bought a pair and wore them for three months. They fell apart at the seams on the sides. I gave them the benefit of doubt and bought the second pair. The same thing happened. My closet looks like a 511 store. I really felt bad when customer service said take them back to where you bought them. Where I bought them said see 511. I am done with this. So sad that 511 brands will let quality control slip for pure profit. They make great stuff but these shoes fall apart with less than normal use.
The boots were comfortable but they fell apart after a month of wear. The only time I wore them was walking around town.
Bought these at the Las Vegas store location during Shot Show 2016. It took less than 2 weeks for the canvas to pull away from the boot along the rubber edge right behind the toe box. Not in one place, but both the inside and outside of the boot.
I spend alot of money on the pants and shirts for work over the years, but I have to say the quality of some of the products has taken a drastic decline once manufacturing becomes more quantity over quality and is outsourced.
It is an easy design fix though, simply extending a small suede strip from across the rear of the toe box to the heel, along the bottom of the canvas where it meets the rubber sole would probably fix a good deal of the issue. It seems like where the rubber meets the canvas is the weak spot and once it starts to fray then the boot disintegrates very quickly.
As well, being told to take them back to the point of sale for an exchange (1300+ miles away now) is completely unrealistic, nor would I exchange for the same model. It happened once and based on other reviews here, it is a poor design flaw. I am stuck with a very poor boot that might make it for 24 hours with the dog as a chew toy. An expensive chew toy at that.
