Thank you for your feedback.
They fit perfectly as expected, and even provided adequate protection when I was in a motorcycle crash.
They fit me perfect and are very comfy, especially after spending all shift in them day after day.
I do a LOT of walking and appreciate a good quality boot that fits well, is comfortable and doesn't tear up my feet.

    I've been trying different EMS boots for years, hoping to find the holy grail of perfect comfort, quick on-and-off, and waterproof human pathogen resistant protection. I've tried most the the major brands, worn them out, and replaced them with something different each time because there was always the hope of finding something better. The most comfortable I've ever worn are discontinued, so the search continues.

    These 5.11 ATAC boots are quite nice. Here's my one and only criticism: The top two shoelace fasteners are hooks, not eyelets. So when you use the side zip, the laces can get loose enough to slip right off of them. That's fine if all you care about is getting OUT of the boots quickly. Some of us, though, also have to get INTO them quickly and the side zip is not particularly useful if you still have to tie your laces.

    Other than that, I gotta tell you they're really comfortable. They look great. The side zip is durable and easy to grip. They breathe nicely and I can wear them a long time without my feet getting too hot. I'm a full time firefighter/paramedic and they get daily wear. I've had no problems and at this point, I'd buy them again. Nice boots, especially for the price.

    I LOVE these boots for several reasons. Working in a prison I'm on my feet all day long. They are comfortable and secure. I love the zip access on the side for putting them on/off. Who doesn't love a free pair of socks?!

    5.11 overall makes a great product with these boots. They're comfortable, they have great mobility and they feel good on the feet. They only cons I can see are that compared to some of the Magnum boots I've had in the past these are a bit on the heavy side however I haven't found it to be a personal problem; just an observation. I've had my 2nd pair now for 2 years and the original shoes laces have started to shred a bit so I'll be thinking about replacing it soon but not having to think about laces for two years isn't a bad thing. The boot shines up nice and looks professional. It's a non-black marking sole, waterproof, bio-proof, oil-proof from what I've assumed based off of daily wear at work and off of work.

    Overall, I love this boot. I probably won't ever buy another brand or style again. I can't say enough good things about it.

    ATAC 6" side zipper. These boots were recommended to me be an officer. He said they were the "most comfortable boot he has ever worn". I ordered a pair, and they are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn also! From day one, I have worn these boots without any break-in period, blisters, or rub spots. They fit perfect right out of the box. Not only do they come with large eyelets that make lacing up the boot easy, the last two notches are D-rings for quick removal after work. The side zip is great to let a little air in during a hot day, and assist in removing the boot. The price is right, here on Amazon. Give them a try, you won't regret it. Trust me.

    Heeding advice from earlier reviewers, I ordered a size smaller than usual, but the boots were too small and I had to return them. My usual size was shipped. They are slightly big, allowing just enough space for a gel insert. The soles are not very well cushioned, so the insert is a great addition and recommended.
    These are great boots! The lug soles are made of very hard material which gives the impression of long life. Quality construction everywhere. They fit well, are lightweight and comfortable. Sometimes the zipper pushes a bit on my ankle and is mildly annoying, but I can live with that. These are by far the easiest boots to lace up and take off that I have owned. I don't use the zippers because of that. It's extremely easy and fast to lace up with the proper tightness, and I won't have to worry about zipper failure. They are a pleasure to put on and work with. I do a LOT of walking and appreciate a good quality boot that fits well, is comfortable and doesn't tear up my feet. I have owned Bates ($125) and Danner ($190 - desert boots, very good) before I decided to buy these, and I'm very glad I did. These boots are better, more affordable (I don't want to say "cheaper" because they are very good quality) and just a pleasure to wear. I've been wearing them for about a month now with no problems. I actually look forward to putting them on, and sometimes wear them when I'm not working.

    Best EMS boots. Super comfortable. Easy on and off, breath well, light, Do not smell (I didn't know they had some antibacterial properties), Can wear with zipper down when posted, for super comfort and air. and they look GREAT!

    I also use them for riding my motorcycle, as they do a good job of covering the ankles. They really last. I have mine for 2 years (worn every day) and I'm only buying a new pair cause it's been so long. I'm wearing them

    I really don't have to buy a new pair.... I want

    LIGHTWEIGHT (for a boot, these are much lighter than my co-workers boots)

    TOP TWO HOOKS FOR LACES w/ ROPE STYLE LACES COME UNTIED EASILY) I fixed this problem buy tucking the "loops" of my tied laces into the velcro strap that holds the zipper down. They never come untied like this....
