The side zip is very handy, but I try to squeeze them tight before just pulling up the zipper to take the strain off. The zipper looks like the weak link in the system for the long term. The sole may not last forever as I have already noticed a couple of nicks in the bottom and I haven't really abused them much yet.
Normally I am square between 10.5 and 11 in foot size. I got the 10.5, but probably should have gotten the 11. I didn't exchange them, but if I planned on very long hikes or marches, I would have. These'll be motorcycle and work boots without miles-long walking.
I would recommend them as they appear to be a good value for the price and are very comfortable.
Update: I had the boots for a year and a half. They broke in nicely and got very comfortable and proved to be very durable. My son just "borrowed" them while home during spring break so it's unlikely I will ever see them again. Since I am ordering another pair of the exact same thing it's probably worth adding that fact to the review.
I put these boots on before I leave for work, and take them off (sometimes begrudgingly) when I get home. These are definitely a comfortable boot, and I have worn combat boots for the last 14 years. The Army (unfortunately) would never pull their heads out of their fourth points of contact long enough to authorize these boots for use in garrison. So as a soldier, I was constantly buying different boots that were authorized for use in an attempt to find that perfect balance of comfort and functionality.
Now that I am out of the Army, I can broaden my scope. And I tell you, these boots are great! If they weren't my work boots, I would wear them all the time. I will be buying a second pair in the future for my personal use.
Living in Montana means you have to be ready for anything. You could be walking down the street one minute, and the next find yourself helping a friend do something (or just playing) up in the mountains. Having a boot that not only looks good, but give your that kind of versatility is awesome. Not to mention the comfort!
I will know more about their durability as time goes on. But 5.11 Tactical always impressed me in the past. We will see how they hold up.
The top of the ankle is well padded and the boot is light and well made. There is a hidden side pocket on each boot. Perhaps a good place for a little money or a key. I am unsure what I would keep in there.
For the price, these boots can't be beat. Having worn Corcoran jump boots back in the 80's along with combat issue boots, I am accustomed to a well-fitting boot. While these are not a boot built for combat they definitely fit EMS duties well. I saw them worn by people in our agency consistently and decided I would go with the same brand and type. I am finding that 5.11 makes fantastic products and I intend to use them during my volunteer career. For under $100 (and some vendors selling them in the $65 range), you cannot beat this price to build and quality ratio.
Loving them right out of the box!
They take a little work to break in, but it isn't as bad as you might expect. Took less than a week to break them in well enough to be very comfortable.
Less than 3 days after receiving these boots, I found myself doing backwoods trail maintenance on narrow, muddy trails during thunderstorms. As other workers slipped and nearly fell off the cliffs, I was able to keep a tight grip on the trail thanks to the solid tread.
Today, I spent a few hours hiking part of the A.T.in TN/NC, then went to work at a rock wall for a few more hours; I've also been biking and walking around town. Essentially, I've been on my feet for about 12 hours. My feet are only a little sore at this point.
The hidden pockets aren't much to marvel at. Not a lot of space. I just use mine to attach the clip for my boot knife.
The side-zip feature is very useful for quick on/off, but overuse of said feature will quickly wear out the velcro cover.
Boots are easy to clean, waterproof and lace.
Put simply, believe the product description. These are great boots for an even better price. I would usually expect boots of this quality to cost at least $175. No serious complaints here.
