    I've been a longtime fan of my Ridge Air-Tacs since I was an Airman in the USAF. The side zipper saved me tons of time in the morning. The steel toes and shank protected my feet from debris and could serve as a very handy platform for heavy things in a pinch. The weight was hardly any more than sneakers, and they were more comfortable than any running shoes. They even had leather toes and heels, which allowed me to meet the regulations that required a shine. (And in the civilian world, they look close enough to dress shoes to pass casual inspection when I pass VIPs while getting REAL work done!)

    These are supposed to be all that and a bag of chips, but they leave something to be desired. The zippers aren't teeth, they're just a very clever metal coil. This has cost me a pair of boots when they coil got bent and couldn't be forced back into proper position... thus leaving them un-zippable. Worse, though, is that these do not have the lace latch. On the old boots, at about the 5th eyelet in, right before the boot goes vertical, there was this little latch. You'd run your laces through it just like an eyelet and then clamp the latch down. This kept the laces nice and tight for a good 6 months or more. This feature has been deleted from the Air-Tac Plus, which means instead of lacing my boots twice a year, I'm doing it every week... otherwise the laces get so loose that I may as well be wearing sandwich bags.

    That said, these ARE decent boots. They're just not what they should be, nor what the brand once was. I fear that with the USAF gone to suede boots, the last big market for Ridge's black boots has disappeared.

    I ordered these because I wear the low top in summer and wanted the 8inch for winter. The boots size are right on. They seem a little stiff in ankle area but after a few minutes they feel comfortable. These boots are very durable . The low top ones I have are still like new after 3 years. These out of the box are slightly less comfortable than the 511 Atac's but actually seem a slightly better quality. You just can't go wrong with these boots.

    A great replacement for the now discontinued Converse Size-Zipper Duty Boot
