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.
