So lets start with the pros:
-The overall construction is pretty good. The stitching is solid and the tread has not separated in anyway.
-The boot is very breathable.Combining them with a quality lightweight sock, I love the fact they will keep your feet from sweating in the heat of the summer.
-The tread design provides great traction in whatever you throw at them. Loose gravel, dirt, or even mud, they have an aggressive grip that works great.
Now the cons:
-These boots took a while to break in. I found the heel has a lot of reinforcement, but due to the stiffness, they have bothered my heels for a while, even after getting them broke in.
-The lacing system will stay tight IF you get them tight. My problem was while trying to get them cinched tight, one of the eyelets pulled out of the boot within the first two months. Now just yesterday, another eyelet tore out on the other boot while trying to get them tightened.
Overall, I give these a 3/5. They are just average. They have held up to what I've thrown at them, but they eyelet failing after the first month did not represent the quality I expected from a boot advertised to be designed for special operations.
I even tried them on with thin socks on. Now i have to return or give them away. What should i do????
