    Received my OTB SAGE NEW BALANCE boots today in the mail via U.S. Patriot. I chose the OTB SAGE boot because they are GSA authorized and they are in regs. with the ABU's. At first I thought they had sent me something other than boots because the box was so light or maybe someone made a mistake and only sent me one boot instead of a pair. Nope, I was wrong, I had a pair of the lightest boots I ever had my hands on. I strapped the boots on and was instantly amazed on how well they felt. Why did I wait so long to by my own pair of boots? I am usually issued BATES or BELLEVILLE, but for some reason, they never felt good on the feet. New Balance is all about comfort and performance. I have three sets of New Balance shoes. Minimus for weight training, 758s for cross-training, and 890 Bradleys for running. All are great! Now I have a pair of OTBs. They run true to size, just as they were advertised. I wear a size 10 in N.B. shoes so I ordered a size 10 for the boots. No regrets. Worth the money! Got to take care of the feet!

    Had the desert style for a while, lasted through 6 months in southwest asia. These are very light (I can sprint in them) and breath well, but you still have the protection of an actual boot (i.e., kicking rocks and such doesn't hurt), unlike some of those "tennis shoe" style military boots. Only wish they made a safety toe version (it would weigh a little more).

    These boots represent an incredible morale boost when dealing with 120 degree temperatures. They are much better ventilated than the Bates that I have always been issued, and they weigh only a few ounces more than my running shows. I would recommend this boot to any service member deploying to Southwest Asia during the summer months!

    I have always been a New Balance fan, so when I saw their new combat boots for sale, I was immediately interested. I shopped around for a bit, but couldn't find lower prices from a reputable vendor, so I purchased from Amazon. The boot arrived quickly.

    I like the color, which is perfectly suited for the USAF ABUs. The boot was very light, not much heavier than tennis shoes. Now that they are broken in, they are comfortable and cool, even on long walks in the heat of the summer.

    The negatives: the price is very high, $50 - $75 per pair more than your BX combat boots. Also, these are very hard to break in due to stiff heel cups that rub at the back of your feet. Finally, the lacing system is almost too stiff, making it hard to get the boots loose enough to remove.

    I like the boots, but probably not worth the extra expense.
