These are the best boots I have ever owned. I am a professional forester in Northwest Florida and wear the boots daily. They are tough, comfortable, cool, shed water well, and dry fast. I hope you keep making them just as they are!!!
These are really good light weight boots. Designed well for all day wear. Good catch-point for lace retention midway to keep both your foot and ankle in place. Great support at arch & ankle, with good padding around the ankle. Decent barrier against puddles without locking your foot away within its own environment, none of the problems that could cause. Really great product.
I usually buy Bates Ultralites but decided to try something new. Bates are the only boots that I have been able to wear comfortably and the break in period is minimal with Bates. But, these boots are proving to be a very good alternative to Bates and will probably even surpass Bates and become the Primary "Go To Boot". Cant beat the price for the quality of these boots. SO FAR SO GOOD but Time will tell .
Function with comfort. Great for the price and look good too. They do fit more like a medium/wide width but are to true to size. I would recommend these military boots as it exceeded my expectation's and will last for a long price, even with the cheap price tag.
I used these to go caving. I had only worn them once before to walk about 1 mile on flat pavement - so I really didn't do much to break them in. In fact, the first time I put them on, they felt very comfortable.
Caving had lots of climbing over big rocks and walking on very steep angles on sandy ground. The ground was also sometimes slippery and wet. We descended about 45 stories underground. There was a big risk of twisting ankles. We also had to walk through shallow streams (about 2 inches deep). The hike lasted about 3 hours.
These boots did a FANTASTIC job in the caves! They were soft and comfortable. My feet stayed dry. My ankles were well supported. They had enough traction that I didn't slip on steep or wet surfaces.
I love the fact that once you get them tied just how you want them, you can just use a zipper to put them on and take them off. They have thick padding on the inside. They are solid but don't feel clunky. They aren't too heavy. They are true to size. I'm glad I chose these boots!
