    5 stars for nice fit right out of the box. So far so good, but I'm behind the lines techno geek. Light duty, everyday duty, but choose your expectations. Not water proof nor insulated. Not tough enough for noble dudes who hump with a pack and weapon!

    Had the desert style for a while, lasted through 6 months in southwest asia. These are very light (I can sprint in them) and breath well, but you still have the protection of an actual boot (i.e., kicking rocks and such doesn't hurt), unlike some of those "tennis shoe" style military boots. Only wish they made a safety toe version (it would weigh a little more).

    I have always been a New Balance fan, so when I saw their new combat boots for sale, I was immediately interested. I shopped around for a bit, but couldn't find lower prices from a reputable vendor, so I purchased from Amazon. The boot arrived quickly.

    I like the color, which is perfectly suited for the USAF ABUs. The boot was very light, not much heavier than tennis shoes. Now that they are broken in, they are comfortable and cool, even on long walks in the heat of the summer.

    The negatives: the price is very high, $50 - $75 per pair more than your BX combat boots. Also, these are very hard to break in due to stiff heel cups that rub at the back of your feet. Finally, the lacing system is almost too stiff, making it hard to get the boots loose enough to remove.

    I like the boots, but probably not worth the extra expense.

    These boots represent an incredible morale boost when dealing with 120 degree temperatures. They are much better ventilated than the Bates that I have always been issued, and they weigh only a few ounces more than my running shows. I would recommend this boot to any service member deploying to Southwest Asia during the summer months!
