    • Better Designs

      Vibram ripple soles look like they will hold up for a long time. Top portion of fabric feels kind of cheap compared too other boot brands. Boot is heavy/stiff and will need a good break-in period. You will also need a full size smaller than your normal size. No vent holes or so called water drainage holes so whatever gets in won't come out unless you take the boots off. The 10 inch ankle height is a bit weird to get used to at first. As the headline reads there is better designs out there.

    • Good Boot

      Make sure to get these a half a size smaller, I wear a 12 shoe but had to buy a 11 1/2 for these. My pair have been used in mostly deployment and some garrison. They are 7 months old and look like they could last at least another year. They are also 10" boots not the standard 8" and have helped keep sand out when stepping in soft pits. Pros: -surprisingly comfortable, fits my foot shape nearly perfectly and the ripple sole adds a slight spring further helping with comfort especially on rough terrain and when carrying heavy loads. -construction is tough yet requires almost no break-in time! I am yet to get a blister in these boots. - the ripple sole grips sand, dirt, gravel very well. I didn't even notice how it glides over this kind of terrain till I tried my other boots and was sliding around in the sand and dirt. - Made in the USA! It gives peace of mind knowing I helped even if a minute amount to help the economy for the country and countrymen I swore to serve and defend. It does matter! Cons: - having 4 eyelets at the bottom half makes it easy when in a hurry to accidently get too tight a fit. When this happens the second eyelet from the bottom on my particular pair comes down and smashes the bootlace down onto the bones of my feet. It's not too noticeable at first till a few hours of wear and quickly escalates in discomfort - there are no drainage vents (it rains in the desert too,) however you could also say it keeps the soft powdery sand from entering through the vents. Overall: Good boot but could be improved, however the meat and potatoes are there. I recommend them and will be buying another pair when these ones wear out. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for the eyelet problem I've encountered and the lack of drainage vents.

    • Love ripple soles

      I've owned two pairs of these boots and I love the soles. My first pair, my ankles wore through on both sides after only 6 months ( half garrison, half Iraq ). Soles held up great! My second pair lasted me 8 months when alternated with another pair or two. This pair had no issues and saved my big toe when some razor wire cut through the leather. Boots are extremely heavy though and with such a tall sole, ankles can be rolled easily in uneven terrain. Sole isn't great laterally in slippery environments for obvious reasons. I would reccomend these boots but I have moved on from them. Hope this review was helpful. Go Army!
