Great boot

Great boot for EMS

Terrible Cheap Boot - Excellent Customer Service

 Rated 2.0 stars

From Jordan


I've been through two pairs of these by now. The first pair lasted about 8 months before the sides split open and just in time for winter. I suffered through a few shifts of cold wet feet thanks to the adhesive that split the leather right where leather and rubber met.

I contacted my local 5.11 store and they replaced the pair at no cost. This company has the best customer service and best employees. Literally the best. No one compares close to how awesome these guys and gals are... back to the boots.

Now my second pair. So far so good except the leather is bubbled up and raised on the toe where they glued the liner underneath. My boots look cheap and shoddy and despite how much I shine the toe, the terrible texture ruins the look and my uniformed appearance looks sloppy.

I'd return them but after the first exchange I feel bad trying to swap these out for a third pair. Who knows how many boots I have to go through before they give me a decent pair. Looks like I'm on the hunt for a new pair of boots from a better boot company.

I am still covered in 5.11 gear, my jacket, my holster, my pants, undershirt, socks, knife, mag holder, backpack, flashlights, daypack, but unfortunately I will no longer be rocking 5.11 boots on duty.

Great pair of work boots

From Adam


I have had my boots for the last year. I have worn them almost everyday and I am just now having an issue with the sole separating from the inside of the leather and I am about to buy a second pair. They are very comfortable with my 12+ hour shifts. I would recommend these to anyone.

 Rated 3.0 stars

From Joe


Not as comfortable even though it's supposed to be the same bed. Maybe if they had the Atac insoles. Also I would like to know how to get those.

Bad design change

 Rated 2.0 stars

From Edwin


5th pair of these boots in 9 years. 4 black and one sandbox. Latest pair has side zip shortened by 1 inch making feature useless. Boot has to be re-laced each use.
