Best Boots I have EVER owned!!!
on February 7, 2012
I have worked in Military/Para Military & Security Industry for nearly 30 years. During that time I have experimented with all manner of boot at all price points. Some have been winners; some have fallen appart within days of hard use in tough conditions. What I can say is I wish I had these boots 15 years ago. I am not a shoe salesman or cobbler but here are my feelings. Priority one is fit and comfort and these boots exceeded all expectations. They feel like a very secure sneeker all be it slightly heavier. Next for me is weight. This is a light boot for it's construction. This all leather, waterproof boot is outstanding, the midsole and cushioning is second to none and the shank provides great support. The sole provides traction and is non scuffing so I can wear them in my office and out in the field. With some of my boots I had to change before heading out to shoot or taking the boys out for some PT or I would upset the office cleaning crew. The combined factors, all positive make me a very happy camper. I was so satisfied with these boots that I also purchased the Newport sandals and I am seeking a pair of Oregon PCT boots for when I am not hiking for a client or my employer. I can't find anything negative to say about these boots. As far as price, those in the security community have paid more for boots that are far heavier and do not even come close to the performance of these boots. enough said.....
