I've worn these boots about 300 days of the past year. I bought them for motorcycle boots but they are so comfortable I wear them for anything. They are very stable and prevent my foot from rolling. I wish they were a nubuck or rough side out, since I hate to shine shoes. I recommend them highly.

Hard Charging Boot Tester - I'm in the coast guard and always on the go...I've been through several pair of boots in the last few years. To save money I started buying BATES brand boots from the Base Exchange. I have to say they are comfortable with hardly any break in period, but have a notoriously short life span. I work on a flight line and pound about 3-4 miles of concrete a day...let me tell you with these pair of BATES the tread was worn "flat" within 3 months, maybe I just walk wrong, but I doubt it. I would not recommend these to anyone who cares about durability...even some of the seams are coming up.

So far I\\\'m loving these boots. They fit pretty well. I\\\'m sometimes a size 9.5, sometimes a 10. These fit me at 9.5. The size 10 was way too big. They are a little too warm for summer on my motorcycle, but they\\\'ll be great for winter. Very nice so far.

The boots appear to be made well. I have been wearing them for about a month and they show little wear on the leather. They shine up really well, for those officers who are required. They can get a little hot, but that is expected of waterproof boots. These are a good value. The sizing is not ideal. I normally wear a 10, but these run long and narrow. I started with a 10 but they were a size too big. When I swapped them for a 9, the 9 was too narrow, so I settled on a 9 wide. They fit perfect. I have never had to get a wide shoe or boot before so it is the boot not my foot. Thanks to Zappos for the amazing exchange policy as this was very easy to get the right size and I will be purchasing from them in the future.

I'd also recommend: Magnum, Oakley

Bought these boots for my husband who is a police officer. They are great we usually order his shoes from another company, but found Zappos carried them for less than we usually pay. And of course they ship faster! They give great support and comfort especially for someone who is on their feet a lot.

We have ordered this same item twice before and this time it's too small. Maybe made in a different country this time. Will reoder in 1/2 size larger. Great boot.
