  • 3 out of 5 the boots are comfortable, however after a couple weeks of wearing them everyday, I wore a hole into the back of both boots. Filled the holes with cotton and applied mole skin up the entire back of the boots. Also the seam up the back became unstitched on the right boot. Obviously not made in the states.
    We're sorry to hear your boots haven't performed well! The manufacturer does offer a warranty on their items, so if you reach out to our customer relations team, they will be happy to help you determine your eligibility. - TacticalGear.com

  • 5 out of 5 For $100 this is one of the best pairs of boots that I've ever worn. I have a pair of magnums that I wear all the time, and I think it's safe to say that these boots are arguably just as comfortable. I mainly got these for work and airsoft. They have great traction and stability.The supports inside the boots are in just the right spots against your foot to provide maximum comfort for being on your feet all day. I went on a jog last night in the snow (about 2 inches) and the tracks on the bottoms of these things feel like they sliced right through the snow! great traction on these boots! The only complaint I have is that I'm not quite sure how tight to lace the top, but it is a little stiff and was causing me some rubbing/hurting on my legs. I only just started wearing them yesterday, so this may potentially go away.

  • 5 out of 5 I bought these for paintball in the woods and they worked great. I typically use a pair of boots, but these are so much better. Good traction, strong material, and great comfort. I actually used these right out of the box and didn't even break them in. They were relatively light and very comfortable. My only negative remark is that my big toe got sore since the toe area is so stiff. That may actually be an advantage since it protects the toes...

  • 4 out of 5 first week or more it was hard getting used to them. I had replaced the insole and had to trim it to keep my feet form getting cramped. after much adjusting over a few weeks between loosening, tightening and maybe trimming the insole. they fit quite well now and only once started to cause a blister on my right big toe. but absolutely nothing like what the walmart survivor commander brand did to my feet over months. I may need to adjust them more but so far I'm happy to have a real boot for the money spent.

  • 5 out of 5 Bought these for my boyfriend, he's been wanting boots for awhile...The night I ordered them I accidently ordered the wrong size...I tried to call, but they were closed, so I called and left a message, I also sent an e-mail, I didn't want them to mail out the wrong size. The next morning I called as early as I could and was informed they had already changed the size on my order and sent me an email to confirm! I was very impressed!!! My boyfriend truly loves his boots! Says they are very comfortable and sturdy. I was also impressed with the delivery time...they were here much earlier than I expected!

  • 5 out of 5 For a hundred bucks I really thought I was paying for just the name. I always, always, put a set of good gel pads in all my new shoes and boots and did the same for these. They fit better than boots twice the price. I wore them for the first week 12 hours a day, most of the time on concrete. Excellent. They take a good brush shine too. I looked at socks when I bought the boots and decided that I would never pay that price for socks. Then found the coupon for free socks with purchase. Now that I have them, I might pay big bucks for socks I have to stand in all day. Most of the gear has a big price tag but it is all quality and worth the price in my opinion. I want some black rip stop tactical trousers but they may have to wait for the next job.

  • 3 out of 5 I like the boots; but they are very hard on the foot without the addition of a good insole. They really could use a good pull tug to help get them on. My " Rockies" came with a comfortable insole already in them. I think these are a good boot for the money. I have had them before and they wore very well. I hope that these do as well.

  • 5 out of 5 Went on a 1.5 mile run with these right out of the box. My feet feel NO pain, hard to believe. Wish I had found these before. The next test will be how long they last. Buyers note: They fit like running shoes, not a half size big(ie: My Bates were a 9. Im 9.5 in 5.11). So order the same size as your running shoes.

About 5.11 8" ATAC SZ

  • When you spend your days on foot, the last thing you want is uncomfortable footwear. The 5.11 A.T.A.C. boots were created for those who spend long hours on their feet. Fusing innovative technologies and proven construction processes, they boast a number of features typically found in much more expensive boots. They are available in six- and eight-inch variations. Lightweight and responsive, the boots include the 5.11 Shock Mitigation System, which provides superior compression and rebound that ensures comfort, stability and quick movement. Both oil- and slip-resistant, the boots have a quiet outsole that gives wearers the tactical advantage, even when traversing wet surfaces. Durable and comfortable, A.T.A.C. footwear fits like a running shoe but looks like an aggressive boot.

About 5.11 Tactical

5.11 collage It all began with the pants. Taking its name after its flagship product, 5.11 manufactures some of the most well-known tactical pants and clothing in the world. The original 5.11 Pant was initially developed as a rock climbing trouser, but police officers became fond of the spacious, functional pants. For the last 30 years, personnel from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies have worn these pants. Founded on the principles of durability and quality, 5.11 expanded its scope and soon began manufacturing other articles of tactical clothing, footwear, eyewear, duty knives, tactical gear, holsters and much more.
