These Boots are the Sh!t
I found out about OTB boots from a high school buddy who served in several theaters as a SF medic. I fell in love with these the day I got them about two months ago, they are the most breathable boot I've ever come across. I wear them 10 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, and they don't stink. 6 inch support has been plenty for the abuse I've put them through so far, but I could see the 8 inch being useful with 80lbs of gear and 30lbs of armor on my feet.
The sausage link laces are great too, if you don't get this boot, I suggest finding these laces online.
This is my second pair of OTB boots (other being the 8inch ODHIN). Unique spiral laces keep them tied, the first time, a really cool feature. Comfortable like you'd expect, great cushioning and support, as well as the mesh and synthetic vents on the side...can't beat this in terms of breathability. Toe cap is holding up, as well as the sole. Very well constructed, not a detail overlooked. You'd think you were wearing a pair of mid-top basketball shoes.
BEST BOOTS IN THEATER
These are the best boots i have ever worn in hot environments, with the variety of ACUs, they work great and feel like you have on shoes more than boots. With the added stress of wearing gear they support your feet and knees very well, and make our job much easier, espiecally outside the wire.
