      Reviewer: Erik

      Excellent boots & extremely comfortable. I've worn them working for 10+ hrs and my feet still feel good afterwards. Would recommend these to anyone who's on their feet for long periods of time.

      These boots offer a good balance of comfort, support, and weight. My brother and I both purchased a pair, and we're very satisfied with the quality, style, and comfort. The quick-release zipper is a nice convenience, too!

      I bought these for my husband for Christmas. He loves them, he says they are the most comfortable boots he has worn. No breakin period, he wants me to buy another pair so he has two.

      Lightweight, comfortable, and durable. As security officer I walk A Lot, and since I started to wear these I haven't a single problem by the end of day.

      Reviewer: Average Joe

      6/28/2012

      I'm a mechanic and on my feet all day either outside or on a concrete shop floor. I've tried many pull-on work boots, but I really wanted something light and supportive which does not usually describe a pull-on work boot. I decided to try the 8" taclites out and they are great. Light, and easy to slip on and off due to the side zip. They are also very easy to break in, and were even comfortable the first time I wore them. Great boot at a good price.

    • Good summer boot
      Reviewer: Ron K.

      5/20/2012

      Very lightweight boots! It has been in the 90's here and they breathe well! A little break-in was needed unusual for 511 boots. The arch support is a bit much for me but I'm flatfooted, removing the insert fixed that. Also had to order a 1/2 size bigger for extra width. I have only worn them for two days so I can't comment on how well they will stand up to use but if they are anything like their other boots you should get your moneys worth. My only complaint is they do not come in extra wide.

    • Easy on and off
      Reviewer: Ted

      5/11/2012

      By adjusting the laces the boot fits great. The zipper then allows off and on quickly and still have the best fit. The support the boot gives is great for walking hiking and most other times. I run very little now. I was looking for an easy on /off boot that still felt snug and supported my ankles. This is it.

    • Nice light summer boot
      Reviewer: Wingnut

      5/6/2012

      Nice boot for the money. I have been wearing them for about 8 months on patrol. They are wearing well. I had a similar pair of Bates side zips that fell apart and were not comfortable. The 5.11 taclite boot is lightweight and comfortable and the zipper seems to be of good quality. They are wearing well.

    • Feels great on the feet!
      Reviewer: Jack

      5/6/2012

      I ordered both these boots and the XPRT 8" Tactical and kept the pair I liked best. What I liked about the Taclite is it's noticeably lighter, and cooler with great ventilation. The fit was excellent for both boots. The taclite doesn't have a crush proof toe, isn't 100% waterproof and isn't as heavy duty as the XPRT. If you need a really strong boot, fully waterproof and probably better for cold weather then consider the XPRT. Also, i like the side zip but because of narrow ankles I have to since the boot pretty tight and as a result I can't easily slip out of them unless I also untie, but that's probably just my problem.

      They are true to size. These boots are very comfortable and they allow your feet to breathe in this hot weather! The laces stay put too, they don't loosen up at all. I would highly recommend these boots!!!

    • I like the ATACs better
      Reviewer: Dave

      3/11/2012

      I was excited to get the Tac Lite Boots. Once I got them I was kind of disappointed. I found the laces hard to untie due to the way they are made. The zippers are no help. On the ATACs I was able to unzip the boots with out untying the laces. With the Tac Lites I need to untie the laces before I unzip the boot. I am finding the zipper side not all that helpful. The boots don't fit that well. I wear arch supports and it makes it a tight fit. Sometimes my feet will hurt after a couple of hours. I did wear the Tac Lites with out the arch supports and my feet would still hurt after a couple of hours. On the up side, they are light and they look good. The Tac Lites are not for me.
