When I first found out about these boots, I read into the back heel being too stiff, the soles ungluing. So I bought some freesole glue when I got them and have not had to use it. Also the back heel area has been fine for me, after 1 years heavy use wearing them hiking, innawoods, training, going to university and daily use... I still love them. Sure first few weeks I had some blisters and rubbing and now I can literally wear these with thin socks and they do fine.
I will say these boots will change the shape of your legs and ankle joints. I became much more flexible after wearing them for weeks.
My review after one year is 10/10 SHTF and general wear boots. Only issues I have has been black toe nail (which just means pressure/rubbing in toe box and can heal naturally.), and I like to add insoles for some cushioning/load bearing. Particularly under the heel needs some extra cushion/load bearing if you are walking on concrete or rocks. I treat my boots with some leather polish every few weeks and they still look new, even after being covered in mud up to the ankle and having been soaked before.
These boots feel best on forest/grass ground, and allow you to feel what you are walking on while over time increasing your dexterity.
People talking about back issues with these probably are having the issues caused by something else.
Pro: Performance. The boots allow me to feel connected to my environment more than ANY other Tactical boot I've tried. Feeling connected leads to confidence during uses of force. If I'm confident in my footing, it's one less thing to worry about while keeping my coworkers and our inmates save and secure. And the traction is top notch.
Fit: wide toe box, great feel.
Cons: Durability, break in period.
First about a month long break in time during which my heels bled (literally),but i didn't have proper socks on. It's real leather,it takes a while.
I'd be MORE than fine with the break in time If i fit more than 4 months of use out of these. See photos. Bottom line, the sole needs stitched all the way around till then figure something else out unless they're getting issued. 150 for this level of connection is worth it, but if they fall apart then I'm where i started.
They're very comfortable but I'm used to minimalist shoes. They are very light, less than a pound each. They still weigh more than what I'm used to and my calves are getting used to lifting the extra weight over a day's use.
Out of the box they squeaked on a tile floor but that went away after a few hours of use. They're now super quiet, because they are so flexible, you can make absolutely no noise while walking.
They take a great shine with some of the above mentioned beeswax polish.
I needed something heavier to replace my New Balance Minimus shoes in the winter. These work great in that regard. I also have the 101 and 103's in green and beige suede leather. They handle bumps better than these do. The first pair got a gash from a very light contact that wouldn't have done much to the suede pairs.
I'll bump these up to 5 stars after a few weeks of wear and if they don't begin to squeak like the last pair did.
I wonder if there is a warranty on these boots because I bought these at the end of February and it is now the end of October. The leather has a rip on the toe box and the outer sole is wearing thin in some areas. The quality was not what I was expecting for this price range, I was looking forward to a couple of years out of these shoes. I will need them replaced in probably another 6 months, I'm a little disappointed.
