Product Description

These boots not only offer the convenience of speed lacing, but a Cordura and suede leather upper, padded collar, removable cushion insole and vulcanized rubber soles. This boot is superior to jungle boots with canvas uppers. In fact, these have many of the feature of higher-end boots at a fraction of the price. These tend to run a bit large, so if you wear a 12-1/2, you should buy a 12.

    Used them for 7 weeks straight in the Kunar province in Afghanistan. Good support all around. Great for kicking in some doors. comfort went down during my 8th week because of moisture composition to the inner layers but other than that a great tactical piece of equipment.

    Boots are exceptionally comfortable. They run true to size. Wonderful boots for someone like me who hates to lace and unlace. The zippers eliminate this hassle. I've. Had them for a month and they are my favorite ones. Light like a sneaker. I would give them a 5 star rating.

    We ordered these boots as my husband works construction and is in and out of houses all day. Now, instead of having to untie his boots, he just slips the zipper down and steps out. He loves them and would recommend to anyone looking to save time. I'm glad we read other reviews, he sized down 1/2 size and they fit perfect.

    Awesome boot. I bought these knowing I will be going to some rough areas and the boots are super. Very comfortable yet very sturdy, just what I needed. Thanks.

    My only complaint is self inflicted. I normally wear a 10 1/2 to 11. Should have erred on the lower side and bought the 10 1/2's. Would even be even more comfortable. A little looser than I would like, but not uncomfortable. Easy on / off with the zipper, especially since the zipper follows the laces and not just straight down the ankle. They do offer sneaker like comfort with the stability of a boot. Tread pattern is fairly grippy as well.

    I bought Tan, now I'm ordering BLACK, and in 10 1/2 this time. That in itself should tell you how I feel about the boots.

    Just got these for my husband. Here are his thoughts.

    The good:
    This is an amazing boot for the price. Slightly heavier than a pair of slippers for wearing around the house. Mostly all leather outside and seem durable. Bought the "wide" version and there is plenty of room for a very heavy pair of socks if needed, as well as a pair of insoles if you need extra cushion. Very rugged tread pattern for the trail.

    Only two flaws I have found so far:
    First, the plastic Zipper seems a little weak for the strength of the boot. For easy donning and doffing of boot, would be best to leave the laces slightly loose so as not to allow the zipper to be overly stressed.
    Second, I only got one pair. For this price, I should have gotten two so I had a "backup" and still would have spent less than one pair of another brand.

    Highly recommended boots.

    These boots are easily the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. They also breathe very well. The problem.....the souls are absolutely coming apart at 90 days after my purchase. If I had it to do over again, I would spend some extra money and go with something more durable like the oakley boots. Unless you only expect your boots to last 90 days, I would steer clear of these boots.

    Just got these boots today and tried them on for about a hour just to get the feel of them. Have to say they are really comfortable and super easy to slip on because of the side zipper, there way better then the standard issued boots i have as far as comfort. They are not true to size good thing i ordered a 10 regular, my normal shoe size in 11-11 1/2 so you should size down a size and a half. Still have plenty room in the toe and around the ankle. Will use them for training and drills cause they are a standard basic boot. Overall I say they are worth the money for the quality.
