Thank you for your feedback.
They feel pretty comfortable and fit perfectly.
This happened two more times since then, and some of the plastic eyelets that are BUILT INTO THE BOOT started to break.
Update 12/15/11:

The boot leather has started to crack along the normal creases you get when wearing boots.

    Unfortunately that luck didn't last.

    They started falling apart the second time they got wet-peeling away next to the glued on sole.
    D. Oden
    Usually when I lace up boots, both sides of the eyelets touch and my ankle floats about.

    I bought these boots a year or two ago as replacement for my older combat style boots. When I got the boots in they looked awesome, they laced up good and tight, and they were easy to break in. Unfortunately that luck didn't last.

    Within a few weeks of wearing them during Minnesota winters while off trail hiking, running around, and other physical and everyday uses I realized that they weren't as waterproof as I was hoping for, and it got soaked fast. Next, I noticed that the laces were falling apart. No big deal since I'm used to lacing them up tight. One day, one of the cloth eyelets snapped and the laces were cockeyed. This happened two more times since then, and some of the plastic eyelets that are BUILT INTO THE BOOT started to break. Now throughout the entire time I've had these boots the bend before the toes has been eroding, and quickly. I've had dress shoes that don't wear as quickly as these boots, and no other boots I've had have worn away as easily.

    I have been buying a new pair of boots for each of my 17 years in L.E. I paid about 60% of what I usually pay at our local police supply stores, and I wasn't expecting much. These are very comfortable, and the most slip resistance boots I have ever owned. The only thing I don't like is that I have to pull the laces out of the hooks up top (versus just stretching the boot out after untying them and the laces remaining in the eyelets) so that I can get my feet out. Now those particular lace holders actually work well to keep my feet snugly in the boot, so it's a minor gripe. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could.

    As one reviewer has stated, these boots are sized small, but I believe mainly in the ankle area. I am sized 14, got sized 14, and they fit me perfectly.

    My foot has a very narrow heel but normal toe width. Also I have skinny ankles. Usually when I lace up boots, both sides of the eyelets touch and my ankle floats about. Yeah, I chew up some socks...

    These boots grip my ankle firmly, grip reminds me of better quality cowboy boots. When laced, the eyelets are approximately 2" from one another. Just like normal people!!! My toes have plenty of room and do not touch the boot when kicking something, so they are sized 14 in length. Very comfortable breaking in. Only bad thing is soles can't be replaced.

    So if you have skinny ankles and a narrow heel, these are 5 star. Just order your normal size.

    Update 12/15/11:

    The boot leather has started to crack along the normal creases you get when wearing boots. The cracked leather is actually peeling like an orange. Shame since these boots are comfortable.

    Downgraded to 1 star.

    Bought these as I couldn't get my usual brand or my size over here in N-Ireland
    very light when wearing them unlike my usual brand which make me feel like I'm
    wearing Herman monsters boots LoL

    I like the speed lacing on them as well ,only down side was that the rivets holding
    them to the boot could be stronger as one gave way the second time I wore them ,but
    other than that I would give them 5 stars

    also I had very fast shipping from Amazon.com ordered them 9pm and had them 10am 2days
    later in N-Ireland

    I like these boots alot. These boots are great for the reason I bought them. I work in a kitchen in a correctional facility so I'm on my feet alot. They are much more comfortable than the shoes my company bought me. Also alot more water resistant. Seemss like everyday I would go home with my feet water logged from walking through the kitchen while the floors were being cleaned. That has yet to happen since I bought these boots over a month ago. They are fairly slip resistant. Only surfaces I have slipped on are ones covered with food. The only thing I don't like about these boots are no side zipper. Definitely would make life a little bit easier for me in the morning. Wouldn't take me 5 minutes in the morning to put them on. Other than that I'd definitely recommend these boots to anyone. I already do in fact. Quite a few of the CO's I work with asked me where I bought them.

    I thought with a name like Smith and Wesson I would be getting a quality product. I was sorely disappointed in the craftsmanship of these boots. They started falling apart the second time they got wet-peeling away next to the glued on sole. I have owned and worn them 3 months, and had to replace them. DO not waste your money- buy another well known and reliable brand.

    the boots look great but I feel narrow. I think the company must check the sizes W or E for more comfort it

    Fit well. Not as comfortable as I had thought they would be but could be because I am used to tactical boots that are more like athletic shoes.
