Durable, consistant and unbreakable.

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Jacob


I've walked 15 kilometres every day for 3 months and before that I walked aprox. 5-7 kilometres every day for 6 months during winter-season. Only seen a little tiny scratch on them, that's all.

I've always worn Bates boots. Composite toe, plain toe, waterproof, insulated,ect. I've developed problems with my feet and they are so sore I can hardly walk after work. I bought these 5.11 boots and it feels like magic. My feet no longer hurt when I get home. I cannot say enough about these boots. Thank you 5.11.

Not well made

I've owned these boots for 5 months, and in that time simply walking in them has managed to tear the soles from the upper fabric. My 30$ sneakers have held up better than these boots.

very comfortable

From Steve

from Anchorage, AK

I love this boot. The sole is not quite as thick as a traditional boot so it feels like a tennis shoe with really good ankle support. I work as a corrections nurse and I am constantly on my feet and moving and my feet rarely bother me with this boot. Ive worn this boot roughly 80% of the time over the last 5 months on and off the job and out on the go, no real signs of it breaking down. I was skeptical when I purchased them but have been very impressed, this was a good design and production.

I originally purchased this boot for work but it was so comfortable im looking to purchase a second pair for the off time.

I would be interested in seeing a side zip and a winter weight option.
