they seem good so far
These boots seem to be really nice now mind you I have only had them for about 2 hours. I have heard a lot of people bad mouthing these boots, but that’s just the way people are. I ended buying these from some were else and with the coupons and gift card I had I ended up paying like $60 bucks for them. I figured for that price if they make it a year than fine.
I bought them in July 2010. I have worn them everyday since, including 1.5 yrs in Afghanistan! I am on here ordering my second set now so I can continue to wear them if they wear out after they discontinue this model. No breakin required, I wore them the first day for over 12 hours and they felt great.
Takes a lot of breaking in
Like the other reviewer had mentioned, these boots at first are going to treat you poorly until you break them in. The heal cap tore my heal up twice before I put about $20 bucks of padding into the heal. For a boot that I bought to be comfortable out of the box, I am not too impressed. I do like the side zipper however, it makes for getting out of the boot much easier.
I have used these boots for 6 months over the summer in Iraq. As with other reviewers the toe cap took a little settling in but the boots were fantastic, I suffered none of the heat rash I had had with my other boots and they coped with the summer heat. They were comfortable and provded a sure grip for boarding operations however I did not do extended land operations.
Love This Boot
I found the composite toe boot to be uncomfortable and had a problem with one of the toes, but this model is great. This is by far the most comfortable boot I have ever put on my feet. Soft leather, very fine boot. One thing else was that the US Cavalry store manager was the greatest person I have ever dealt with. I went there with a problem and Patty took care of my problem. I cannot say enough nice things about her. If you are ever in Radcliff, KY visit the retail store!!!
Great boot for the money
I have tried many combat boots looking for more for comfort than anything and have not found one I liked until now. This boot is not the most bomb proof boot that I own but it feels just like sneakers and has great ankle support. I wear these airsofting on the weekends so I can't really say that I have put these to there ultimate test but they have gone through some ruff stuff without a problem. I doubt you could find a better comfort boot for the money.
Great Everyday wear
These boots are some of the best i have ever worn, I had no trouble with everyday wear. I havn't tried them on a long run yet but in the field and in garrison I have had no trouble. I would definitely recommend these for everyday wear.
these boots are great for staying back in the rear but, i just did a 12 mi ruck with these boots and the tore my feet up. the rubber heel cap is the real pain on these boots and the way it's made just really doesn't cut it. other that that these boots are just good garrison wear.
