Very durable, comfortable, and reasonably-priced boot. Quick to break in. The zipper makes the boot easier to get on and off, but you'll still want to use the laces as well because the padding inside will likely get torn over time otherwise. Also, I don't think the zipper has the strength to overcome lace tension without damage. I need high arch support, and these don't quite qualify by themselves. Fixable with inserts. Only complaint is that the heel box seems atypically deep, which can cause rubbing if I don't wear thick socks and lace tightly.

I have had three pair of these now and I have no plans to change. They work great with my regular duty uniform and take a good shine, but I work graves, so I really don't care about the shine much! Neither do the drunks I am taking to jail! They also work great with my BDUs. The waterproofing make them perfect for the rain days, and they perform well in foot pursuits!

I bought these boots for my husband. He has no interest in shopping for clothes, and I got tired of seeing him going to work on a snowy day wearing business shoes. It seems these boots are marketed to police officers, and other professionals who spend a great deal of time outside, but they look just fine with my husband's suit, and he can change into his shoes when he gets into the office. The boots are excellent quality. He says they are comfortable and they have decent traction.

Not fit for military. I am in the military and got these boots about 3 months ago. They seemed to have all the features I was looking for, but I was a little hesitant because of the price. I must say they are very comfortable and easy to put on and take off, but the durability is not, by any means up to par with the likes of Danner and Red Wing boots. The outsole started peeling off within a month of wearing these. I spend most of my time on a ship and was not happy with this purchase. Save your money and invest in a better product.

I'd also recommend: Red Wing, Danner, TImberland Pro

Great boots. I'm on my second pair. They last a long time, stay warm for the winter and cool for the summer. I am an officer in Colorado and have traded in my Danners for these boots. Easy on zipper works well and my feet are very comfortable. I can last on my feet all day on the pavement. I highly reccomend these boots.

I'd also recommend: Danner
