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.

Very stiff and boxy, which is a bummer because a 6" boot with a side zip is hard to find. Hoping to find something with more cushioning for standing all day.

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.

Best fitting boot I've ever had, right out of the box. Order half size larger than normal. Very comfortable, great looking boot. No blisters either.

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.

Right out of the box, these are very comfortable. Good for climbing over rocks, etc. In terms of long trail hikes, given the tactical nature of the boots, they might not give the support you may need.

gave these to a very fussy hiking hub and he wore them out of the box on a 2 day hike. THE BEST!

Construction quality seems fine, nicely light ... BUT ... toe box is extremely tight top-to-bottom. Put immense pressure on my big toes immediately & continuously. Can't wear these without losing a toenail.

Super comfortable!!!. Unfortunately I had to return because I needed a defined heel of at least 3/8" (this was only 1/4" depth). I loved the shoe otherwise.

Wore them for the first time today. At first a little snug in wiggling my big toes. But thru the day I didnt notice it. A very nice boot. I will definitely show them off to people. I think they will be a good fit for the winter. Maybe the summer too!

These would be fantastic boot if the gusset that backs up the zipper were thinner and wider. As it is, they are a tremendous struggle to get on and off with just the zipper open.

My first pair, which I've had for over seven years, shows little wear on the sole, but developed a small hole at the toe crease. That was probably due to my own neglect, not a fault of the boot. I generally don't like 5.11 gear, but they got these near perfect. They are well made, very sturdy, and you can get in and out of them without unlacing, unlike some other brands of side-zip boots. They are even reasonably watertight above the bottom of the zipper for brief immersions. Below the zipper they are watertight. My only criticism is the silly cutout at the back of the calf, which seems to be a fashion in this type of boot. I have large calf muscles, and this cutout is unnecessary. What is necessary in a side-zip boot is a pull tab at the back of the calf, which these obviously don't have.
