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.

This belt is a lot thicker and sturdier than I'd expected. I quite like it.

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.

Better than the Oakleys I've had for 6+ years.

I prefer a side zip boot, and a 6 inch women's boot with a zipper can be hard to find. Other brands I've found and worn weren't all that well constructed and didn't last long. I bought a pair of these boots over two and a half years ago and wore them on a daily basis. They only recently began to wear down in the heel and sole, and other than a few scuff marks, have held up well. I had the original laces on them since I got them, which is unheard of in my world. The boots are pretty much true to size, though I wear a lighter sock in the summer that makes them a little roomy. This is the first 6 inch boot that I've actually bought a second time, and I'll keep buying them for as long as they're available.

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.

So start to separate after three months

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.
Zappos Reviewer on May 02, 2018
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.

Great work boot. Very Comfortable, bought them originaly just work work but now I wear them everyday.

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.
Zappos Reviewer on November 14, 2017
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.
Zappos Reviewer on October 22, 2017
gave these to a very fussy hiking hub and he wore them out of the box on a 2 day hike. THE BEST!
SUSAN from ca on October 04, 2017
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.
Leslie R from Texas on March 18, 2017
These boots come in wide, I wish Zappos didn't only carry the medium
Zappos Reviewer on January 21, 2017
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!
Raejean M from Greenwood, In on January 11, 2017
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.
