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.

Felt a bit tight when my husband first tried them on, which is why I rated them as "feeling narrower than marked". But...after just a few minutes walking in them, they felt so comfortable he knew he'd keep them instantly. DH uses orthotics, so can't comment on arch support. Used primarily for snowshoeing. They're typical GTX near-100% waterproof, lightweight (despite 'heavy,clunky' appearance). DH takes 12Xwide and size was right on. Side zip makes boot feel extra secure, too.

I'd also recommend: Merrell, North Face, Nike, Fila

Overall, I was very pleased with these boots. Durable, great for long shifts, and easy to get on and off quickly. The only negative is that they do seem to run a bit narrow!
