Great everyday boot. Really wish it was waterproof and had a more aggressive tread pattern for hiking.

Purchased these for my husband in a 9.5 D width. He said if the size had been a 10 it would have been better, but D width was not available in a 10 so we ended up going with a different shoe.

I wasn't sure how I felt about ordering work boots online when we were told we had to choose from a list. I'm on my feet 16 hours a day, and my Thorogoods always took care of me, but there were no Thorogoods on the list. I read all the reviews and decided on these 5.11 Tactical boots because of the side zipper feature. I have a wide foot, so I was already counting on them being uncomfortable due to the standard width. They showed up FAST, which was a nice surprise. The best surprise of all was how COMFORTABLE and LIGHT they are. After a month and a half or so now, I'd rather wear these than my sneakers. The regular toe cap was wide enough for my wide foot, they fit snugly around my ankle for no slippage, and the footbed absorbs an entire day of 200+ pounds coming down in it repeatedly. Unfortunately, the only thing I'm not crazy about is that they don't really open wide enough to get your foot in and out even with the zipper open. Kind of pointless to put a side zipper on a boot if it doesn't make putting them on and taking them off any easier/quicker. But they are very comfortable, so I'm content to live with the almost useless zipper.

I like the tough look and light weight. Not very durable as the boot began to come unglued from the sole on the first week of work. The zipper stitching is a little bulky on the inside. This caused me some uncomfort.

This is one of the better purchases I've made recently. The boots look good, they fit well first time on but need a bit more time of break-kin to make them easy in and off with the side zip. My initial take is that they are a good value. I hope they hold up over time.

So, I bought these to replace my other slip ons for the fire department boots. Everyone has liked them and the department is now looking at getting those for all 440 firefighters. Pretty good!

These boots are great. I’ve had them for over a month now and they done great so far. I had to get a half size bigger due to my original size (11.5) not fitting correctly, a bit tight. Now when I got the boots it did take about a week or so to break them in. They are just great to walk around in. It’s just like being in running shoes all day. These boots are great for Ems side of work. The boots aren’t the best at rapid removal for the fire department. Overall these are excellent boots to get.

I’ve been wearing the boots for over a month now and they’re the best. The boots themselves feel like they are tennis shoes with the kind of soles they have. They do take about a week or so to break in. I did have to get half a size bigger due to my regular size fitting a little tight. Now if you’re in a fire house, rapid removal of the boots isn’t the best. These boots are great if your on the ambulance though. Overall these boots are top notch and great to have.

Great fit, but wrong color. Coyote in 5.11 is more of a desert tan. USAF requires Coyote Brown. Wish the colors were a bit more standardized. Re-ordering a darker Coyote Brown boot.

Great boots - lasted me two years of hard usage. Getting a new pair since these are pretty beat from working around the yard and hiking, but keeping the old pair for work. Very comfortable - I pretty much wear these whenever I'm not wearing sandals or sneakers in the summer. With pants on you can't see that they are "tactical" which is nice. The sole lasted very well over the two years I owned them, but there was some separation along the join between the leather and the sole. Still waterproof somehow. Zipper works well as long as the boots aren't laced up super tight.

Overall, I liked the material of this belt, but the way the buckle works it seems like it sticks out at a funny angle when fastened.

The belt itself, I like. However, the buckle sticks out at a weird angle while under tension. Also, take the manufacturers advice and purchase the next size up. I'm at the low end of the medium category, but likely would have kept the large size if it weren't for the buckle.

The boot appeared well made and initially felt comfortable, however I ended up returning. 2 main areas of discomfort was the tongue and the support. It was a soft sole, almost squishy which felt great at first, but after a few hours I was experiencing pain around the ball of my foot due to a lack of actual structural support and the tongue near the ankle was a very hard material that poked or dug into my leg just above the ankle which was quite painful. I ended up exchanging for a Merrell Tactical boot that I am very happy with.

Purchased for daughter's Civil Air Patrol uniform. Ran about a size small. She's typically a 7-7.5. The 7.5 was too small. They were out of 8.5 so we ended up with a 9 which worked with some growing room.

These boots were very comfortable, however fit very narrow and had to be sent back. The leather began to crease after being tried on once for 2-3 minutes, which may be indicative of the quality.

After ordering twice and returning both times due to defects (first pair had broken lace eyelets and second was missing a zipper pull) I am very unimpressed with the quality control on these boots. The second pair had also clearly been returned previously so I am equally unimpressed by Zappos quality control. I'm giving up on these boots which is a shame because I liked them otherwise.

Awesome looking and feeling boot but runs small by about a half size. Love the side zip, lace up once and the zipper opens wide enough to put on and take off comfortably. Super cushy with a nice bounce. Unfortunately, this same shoe on amazon has a 3 star rating due to failing zipper with several photos from different sources. I decided to return and not size up at the steep cost of $149.

Have worn the boots for 4 months and they are ripping out at the sem. They are not held together well. Have emailed 5.11 Tactical to see if they will stand behind their products.

These are smaller, in all ways, for the size. They get great reviews, but I'd need to go up a half size AND get double-wide -- which I never need to get. Too bad they don't sell that size here because the insole feels like heaven. Meanwhile, my foot is getting pinched and crushed.
