As a job I travel about filming abandoned locations (seriously).
This line of work can be quite dangerous, especially if you are wearing improper footwear.
I purchased these boots because I had read in several places that they are quite comfortable and rugged.
What I had read was correct, and I am more than pleased with these boots.
Like all boots, expect to have to break theses guys in before you're totally pleased with how they feel.
The zipper side is actually a key point to me, I hate having to lace and unlace boots every time I use them.
That zipper saves me time, but mostly it just keeps the annoyance factor down.
The tread provides excellent traction, I have climbed many a tree, fence, and wall in these things.
Airflow is nice as well, I filmed an asylum this summer with an internal temp of almost 115 degrees, and my feet did not once cross my mind.
Granted, not much crosses your mind in 115 degree heat, but over-heated feet sure would have made thing worse for me...
Also, for being a zipper-sided boot, these have pretty good ankle support.
