Great all around fitness/hiking shoe

 Rated 5.0 stars

From MenzelNation5


I bought Recon Trainers for my wife and I a few months ago, mostly for Crossfit training. They have been awesome! Broke in quickly and they've been very durable. We both wore them recently on a family hike up a 14er in Colorado and they performed better than other hiking boots or shoes we've owned, even through a boulder field that was tricky to navigate. The rope feature is helpful if you like climbing the rope in your workouts (I do). I don't run in them as I don't believe this was their intended purpose, but for daily WODs they're great. Overall this was a HUGE value purchase considering the price, and I've worn them for much more than just workouts.

Even better than I expected

From Larry


These shoes are just about the most comfortable shoes I can ever remember wearing for any purpose, other than maybe another pair of 5.11 boots I used for work. They are no bigger than they need to be - they easily fit in my suitcase without taking up a lot of space. They are light and flexible, and the soles are flexible and make almost no sound when they hit the ground. I absolutely love them! When you order, be aware that they fit snugly, so don't order small.

5 months old, sole seperates with minimal use. Shoe doesnt breath

 Rated 2.0 stars

From Justin


I bought these shoes a few months ago and have only used them a couple days a week, for no more than 2 hours at a time. After wearing them the first time for a few hours, I noticed that they did not breath very well and my foot would sweat. Fast forward 4+ months of walking, light running, and crossfit 3x a week and the exterior sole orange stripe on the inside part of the foot has drastically seperated from the fabric of the shoe itself. I havent even used it for a rope as it is also designed for. Today I drew the line and decided I will no longer wear them. After 1 hour of playing football and incredibly sweaty feet, a massive blister formed on the balls of both feet. A large blister on my foot is the last thing I want to deal with before backpacking in the pacific northwest next week. If I could return them, I would. Hopefully the sole issue is a fluke, but I think the breathability is a design flaw.

Lightweight and comfortable

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Jay


The shoe is a little narrow but very comfortable, and the 5.11 branding is subdued so your feet aren't screaming "TACTICAL SHOE" while you are out and about.

Great shoes

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Albert


They're so light and supportive. Great for running.

Right on the money

 Rated 5.0 stars

From OH-IO


These are true to size. I ordered a size 10 and they fit perfectly. If you're looking for something with a lot of support in the arch and ankle, these are not it. But if you want some super light, breathable shoes you can wear for casual or working out, these definitely fit the bill. I like that I'm not another Joe Blow wearing Nikes too.
