4.0 out of 5 stars Good light boot, April 17, 2013

This review is from: Belleville TR101 Minimalist Training Boot (Apparel)
I purchased this boot not that long ago and have since grown quite fond of it.

I previously had purchased the Rocky C4T, Blackhawk Desert Ops and the TR393's. These are by far the lightest boots I have owned. They also feature quite rugged construction. In comparison to the other boots, they stand tall in durability. When compared to the standard issue Belleville boots these are miles ahead in terms of overall comfort. In my experience the Rocky's are #1 for comfort, second comes the 393's, the TR101's were more comfortable than the Blackhawks but all were far ahead of the standard issue boots.

As for usability they have excellent grip on dry surfaces (haven't had a chance to try them in the wet) as well as feature one of the better lightweight soles I've seen. Unlike the Rocky's and the TR393's they do not feature a mixed rubber/foam sole. It's one solid piece toe to heel. Granted I have spent most of my time in them on hard surfaces they seem to find off-road treks no more a challenge than carpet.

Similarly to other wearers I've had a little wear on the heel but nothing to extreme. Once broken in they became quite comfortable. For extended trips on paved surfaces I would either recommend you find some inserts or perhaps a pair of C4's for the comfort factor. If you or anyone you know is a fan of minimalist footwear of any type (even old canvas style shoes) I highly recommend picking these up.
