Thank you for your feedback.
They fit perfectly as expected, and even provided adequate protection when I was in a motorcycle crash.
They fit me perfect and are very comfy, especially after spending all shift in them day after day.
I do a LOT of walking and appreciate a good quality boot that fits well, is comfortable and doesn't tear up my feet.

    I've been trying different EMS boots for years, hoping to find the holy grail of perfect comfort, quick on-and-off, and waterproof human pathogen resistant protection. I've tried most the the major brands, worn them out, and replaced them with something different each time because there was always the hope of finding something better. The most comfortable I've ever worn are discontinued, so the search continues.

    These 5.11 ATAC boots are quite nice. Here's my one and only criticism: The top two shoelace fasteners are hooks, not eyelets. So when you use the side zip, the laces can get loose enough to slip right off of them. That's fine if all you care about is getting OUT of the boots quickly. Some of us, though, also have to get INTO them quickly and the side zip is not particularly useful if you still have to tie your laces.

    Other than that, I gotta tell you they're really comfortable. They look great. The side zip is durable and easy to grip. They breathe nicely and I can wear them a long time without my feet getting too hot. I'm a full time firefighter/paramedic and they get daily wear. I've had no problems and at this point, I'd buy them again. Nice boots, especially for the price.

    I LOVE these boots for several reasons. Working in a prison I'm on my feet all day long. They are comfortable and secure. I love the zip access on the side for putting them on/off. Who doesn't love a free pair of socks?!

    5.11 overall makes a great product with these boots. They're comfortable, they have great mobility and they feel good on the feet. They only cons I can see are that compared to some of the Magnum boots I've had in the past these are a bit on the heavy side however I haven't found it to be a personal problem; just an observation. I've had my 2nd pair now for 2 years and the original shoes laces have started to shred a bit so I'll be thinking about replacing it soon but not having to think about laces for two years isn't a bad thing. The boot shines up nice and looks professional. It's a non-black marking sole, waterproof, bio-proof, oil-proof from what I've assumed based off of daily wear at work and off of work.

    Overall, I love this boot. I probably won't ever buy another brand or style again. I can't say enough good things about it.

    Heeding advice from earlier reviewers, I ordered a size smaller than usual, but the boots were too small and I had to return them. My usual size was shipped. They are slightly big, allowing just enough space for a gel insert. The soles are not very well cushioned, so the insert is a great addition and recommended.
    These are great boots! The lug soles are made of very hard material which gives the impression of long life. Quality construction everywhere. They fit well, are lightweight and comfortable. Sometimes the zipper pushes a bit on my ankle and is mildly annoying, but I can live with that. These are by far the easiest boots to lace up and take off that I have owned. I don't use the zippers because of that. It's extremely easy and fast to lace up with the proper tightness, and I won't have to worry about zipper failure. They are a pleasure to put on and work with. I do a LOT of walking and appreciate a good quality boot that fits well, is comfortable and doesn't tear up my feet. I have owned Bates ($125) and Danner ($190 - desert boots, very good) before I decided to buy these, and I'm very glad I did. These boots are better, more affordable (I don't want to say "cheaper" because they are very good quality) and just a pleasure to wear. I've been wearing them for about a month now with no problems. I actually look forward to putting them on, and sometimes wear them when I'm not working.

    ATAC 6" side zipper. These boots were recommended to me be an officer. He said they were the "most comfortable boot he has ever worn". I ordered a pair, and they are the most comfortable boot I have ever worn also! From day one, I have worn these boots without any break-in period, blisters, or rub spots. They fit perfect right out of the box. Not only do they come with large eyelets that make lacing up the boot easy, the last two notches are D-rings for quick removal after work. The side zip is great to let a little air in during a hot day, and assist in removing the boot. The price is right, here on Amazon. Give them a try, you won't regret it. Trust me.

    On Jan 31, 2014 I received my first new 5.11 boots. As I open the new box of carrying the 5.11 – 6inche tactical boots, I was very excited to see them in my hands. It would be my first new pair of boots for this year. I loved the design and the quick release side zipper for easy slip-on and slip-off. I read good reviews on the boots. It received 4 star and even 5 stars. So I purchase my first boot on line, I normally shop at the sportswear stores.
    On my line of work, I am mostly on my feet 90% of the time. As a first responder, I need to be using a very comfortable and light-weight pair of boots in order to function properly on the job. Responding to emergency calls and working on my feet all day, a first responder doesn’t have be worrying about back pain or their feet hurting all day. Unfortunately, the first day I tried my 5.11 boots, they look great but there was a slight discomfort, I figured it was just because they were new boots and maybe need it to be broken into. That was not the case. Another problem I discovered later on the day, the zipper area from the inside, the stitching had a sort of lifted bulge and because of it, it was rubbing toward my ankle. When I took of my boots in the end of my shift, I discovered red markings on both of my ankles and which it hurt due to the zipper design. I noticed there was no cushion insert to eliminate shock. In addition, there were no heel stabilizer and shock eliminator (which are heel cushion) plus no padded cushion for the zipper design. Not having those features can result problems to leg &back pain and also problems on your feet. The boots are not really made for someone who will be responding to emergency calls and standing up all day. I was looking for a type of boot that had a sneaker feel to it.
