Thank you for your feedback.
They fit as expected and the zipper seems pretty heavy duty.
The boots were a great choice broke in quickly and fit great.
Great fit and really handy to be able to lace them up tight and then get in and out of them with the zippers.

I've had these boots for about 6mo now and they're about what I expected. They're not technical boots so if you're looking to wear these on a hike or on long marches you'll be sorry. They break in quickly, which is a plus but if you're going to wear them all day I recommend a nice cushy insole. If you're buying them for the side-zip like I did these are a great. The zip is sturdy and doesn't bind up. The laces can be a pain, but that's a moot point.

These are some really great boots! They are water proof and great for my job. I need reliable boots that get good traction and are water proof. I deal with all types of bodily fluids in my job. I also am out in horrendous weather and terrain. From muddy fields to rocky terrain, I need some boots that can cut the mustard! I recommend these boots for anyone working in EMS, Fire, Construction, or any job where you deal with rough terrain. A+

These work for what I need them for. I work as a paramedic and spend 14 or more hours a day in my boots. These fit nice and are comfortable.

The zipped entry is a time saver when I want to do a quick job, or need to take a break. You can also customize the fit with the laces when you have extended work or walking distances through the brush.

These boots fit well as expected, as long as they are ordered a half size down. Now that being said, everything else about them is terrible. They literally started too fall apart within 3 months, and this is without a lot of wear and tear. I work in law enforcement, but several days a week I pull desk duty, hence I am not putting them through a lot of "punishment." I had to replace the zippers, the stitching popped out, and the leather started too peel away quickly. The soles became so uncomfortable, that within a month I needed inserts, and this is on top of wearing thick socks! Never again will I purchase these, as in my opinion are not even worth 10$.

Okay boot once you change the insoles. The ones it comes with offer no support or shock absorbency. After a few months the back cushion wore out. I didn't notice it until I got home and my heel was killing me. I looked at the shoes and realized that the padding material in the back was gone. I have not worn it since. If I do I will probably need really thick socks. I got thick socks and started wearing the shoes for like 3 months now and where the lace leather meet the nylon it is coming apart. The nylon is stripping. I just wear the boots to class. No tactics in these boots just classroom. Disappointed

Quality is poor. I am a police officer that works in the office. Bought these because of the price. After three days of wearing them, they started to separate around the sides. If you have to stand for more than 5 mins, dont get these. Zero padding for your feet.
