I am a firefighter so I am on my feet a lot and also need be able to get out of my boots quickly when the time comes. My station took a chance on these boots as a group effort and we all love them. Right out of the box I laced them up one time and have not touched them since, for the people who wear zipper boots this is a great feature since my other brand boots would need to be adjusted for the first two weeks as the boots broke in. These boots felt like a pair of tall running shoes with a lot of support and a very comfortable step. My boots were broken in after a good 24 hour shift with no sore or raw places on my feet or heels. The zipper took about three days of normal use to get "worn in" where I was not worried about breaking it getting out of them or zipping them up quick early in the middle of night. The vibram sole is great for working in any terrain (wet floors, peoples houses, concrete, dirt, mud, river banks, and any where in between) for some great traction and grip but it is still soft enough that it does not hurt your feet and back on hard concrete for long periods of time. The heel support is very stiff and virtually unnoticed until you step off a truck the wrong way and you feel it keep you ankle from rolling, also the traction on the back of the boot is great for kicking them off. The waterproofing is 100% and the material of the liner wicks moisture away from your feet. The moisture wicking makes all the difference when you work a 24 hour shift in hot conditions. so far the boots have been great. The leather of the boot will hold a very good shine if you were wondering. In all honesty I really like the boots and they have really impressed me after wearing them for only one day.
Absolutely love this boot! I work at DOC and there are days that I am on my feet for 18 hours. These boots are awesome. Easy to get on and very comfortable. Great when they are in wet conditions and mud. I haven't slipped in them yet. I had no problem breaking them in. I just wore a good thick pair of socks and didn't get any blisters or uncomfortable spots. Going on a year with them and they still are in excellent condition. I have recommended these to everyone I work with.
Excellent boot! I have just switched to this from the 5.11 ATAC. I can already tell these are superior quality to the 5.11s. As soon as I put it on it feels like its made for my foot. it holds it very well and my foot doesn't slide around inside the boot like it did in the 5.11s. The sole has tons of cushion and is very comfortable as well. Size is true to fit and plan on just about a week of break in time. I like these so much I will probably get a second pair to wear for SRT.

Great boot right out of the box. Broke them in for only 24 hrs before backpacking 7km with full pack in the Canadian Rockies. No hot spots, no blisters, and nothing but comfort. If these boots hold up for at least a year they easily qualify as the best boots I have ever owned.
I work in the desert climbing mountains surrounded by cactus and rocky terrain and these boots last. They get beat up, but for the work I do, there is no way to avoid it. These are comfortable and lightweight. They also add extra support for my ankle and are water proof. If you don't run in the desert chasing people on uneven terrain and skip around cactus and every other plant that is out there to hurt you along with rocky, uneven terrain, then you are without a doubt good to go. If you do, these will last while they get beat up.
Most comfortable boots I've owned. I'm on my feet all day and these boots provide great support and comfort throughout the day!
Lets me start by saying I work in corrections so i am on my feet walking / standing for long periods during my shift. I was looking at these boots and Danner stryker 2's. I previously had Bates duty boots which were the worst boots I have ever worn. I picked these boots because of price and other reviews I read regarding these boots. I have had Danner's in the past and I know the quality and comfort they bring to the table but the price is a little steep so I went ahead and took a chance on these. First off when I took them out of the box they are a good looking boot. I love the vibram sole(I wear merril shoes and they use the vibram sole). Starting with putting them on I could tell they were going to be very comfortable and they are true to the size. As soon as I tried to zip them up I became concerned. The right boot was difficult to zip to the top and I though I was going to rip the zipper off. I was thinking how long was this zipper going to last. But after a couple weeks the zipper seems to be working better. I read reviews were they took a couple days to break in. I am here to tell you they take a lot longer to that. The first 4 weeks were agonizing / they had multiple hot spots especially at my ankles, they rubbed on my ankes horribly, and thought I made a really bad purchase. After the break in period they have become a different boot all together, they are comfortable and I can walk / stand for long periods of time and my feet feel good. The laceing system is made well and the eyelets are durable. Over all I would recommend these boots but beware of the break in process but after that I believe they are a comfortable boot. The one thing I didnt like was the fact is that they said they are made in the US and are actually made in China! I wanted American made that was another reason I chose this company. Over all I would recommend these boots.
