      Quality American engineering. As duty boots go, they get uncomfortable as the day goes on. Haven't worn them since my first drill weekend, so they still need some time to get broken in, but after a while I'm sure they'll get there. Till then, they're about what you expect from a boot. Doesn't suck, great for duty, but probably not something I'd wear if I had a choice in the matter.

      When you hear Belleville, you think quality. This boot is USA made, with a broken in feel right out of the box. A great temperate climate boot, these can be worn all year with the right socks and sock liners. Definitely order a full size down from what you normally wear, I wear a 10.5W and ordered a 9.5W and they fit perfect. Just enough wiggle room. Last, the price. This boot is in a price range that makes it affordable.

      I bought these boots after a bad experience with my favorite shoe company. A pair of boots that lasted only 11 months before coming apart. The Bellevilles are cheaper than those, and made of leather. I was leery of the instructions, but ordered 10EEE for 11EEE and waited. When I tried them on the fit was perfect. Roomy, supportive, totally comfortable. I walk all night stocking a store and the boots felt good all night. Just remains to be seen how long they will last. But, since they're made for military use, I have good hopes. BTW, I received these boots in 5 days. Five days.

I can say it worked for me! I received them today and had to put them on and haven't taken them off. Wonderful find for me. I was also motivated to purchase them after reading they were produced in the USA - yippee!! :) I have already told my friends about them.

      It took awhile to finally pull the trigger on these boots. The sizing is what was holding me back. I wear a 10 1/2 in Nike tennis shoes and just about all my footwear, so I ordered a half size down like Belleville recommended and they fit perfectly. I'm using them for outside work boots. So far, so good.

The quality and construction are outstanding and they are comfortable right out of the box. Having ordered my other Bellevilles from different suppliers, this pair from Tactical Gear arrived the quickest, only a few days from ordering to them showing up on my porch!

      Reviewer: frank

      4/18/2016

      The "soft toe" is not soft at all, it's composed of a plastic toe cap sandwiched between the layers. After a half hour the toe cap's rear edge starts to rub my toe tops raw. It really was a soft toe I think I'd have finally found a roomy enough boot. Hopefully that won't bother you, but makes any further use of these impossible for me.

    • Boot Sizing
      Reviewer: Joshua S. Tillinghast

      1/31/2016

      I am reading how all of you people are complaining how these boots don't fit right when ordered, and this is because all boots run on a different sizing chart than shoes because of the material layers and dimensions of boots are so much more thicker made than shoes. Boots are ALWAYS going to be a half size smaller than shoe size because like I said its a different sizing chart based upon the construction process of boots versus shoes. So for my experience I started buying boots when I was 10 and quickly found that they are a half size smaller no matter what than shoes. I am 14 and am a size 11.5 R in sneakers and in boots am a size 11.0 W so if you are looking for a pair of boots get a half size smaller than your sneaker size and I recomend getting a Pair of Belleville boots because these boots are the best made brand of of all boots out there and with proper every day care and weekly cleaning your Belleville's will last YEARS!!!

    • Sizing is wrong
      Reviewer: Miguel Lopez

      12/9/2015

      First off the boots run half a size larger so example if your a 8.5 like me but a 8. Also it gives you 4 choices for the width of the boot don't know why but I think it should be narrow , regular , and wide but it's narrow,medium,wide,and extra wide. I bought the medium because when you hear wide you think your foot is regular size well its not I received the boots medium as ordered and we're quite narrow regular width I belive for any normal man's foot is a wide

      These are great looking boots and seem up to the task. I ordered a Women's Size 4. They are indeed a size larger. The size 4 fits like a size 5. For anyone with small feet keep this in mind as the Size 2 in men's will not work either as that is the comparable size to a women's 4. I really wanted to love these boots. I am tired of always having to wear a size larger just to be in the right uniform and tearing my feet up in the process. WOCC was hell on the ruck march and it took a long time before I could ruck again wearing boots that were not sized correctly. These are truly great boots but becareful of the sizing.

      I read they are one size larger, and in the reviews, some guys said they got one size larger and the boots were still roomie inside, but ok. so since I wear a size 12 mostly and sometimes a size 11.5 if they are wide enough, as I am between those two sizes and have wide feet. I decided to try 10.5W and the fit was perfect, even with boot socks, they are so comfortable and this from a guy who wears flip flops all the time and doesn't even like wearing shoes and I just can't take these off, the best boots ever.

      I usually wear size 10 and 10 1/2 depending on shoe company, i bought some Belleville 300 DES ST boots at a size 9R and they still felt really large, i found a pair of Belleville 300 TROP ST boots that were size 8 1/2 wide and they fit perfectly, the next pair of Belleville boots that i will purchase will be the 390 DES boots and I will give some size 8 1/2 wide boots a try. Even though my current boots are slightly too large, they are still comfortable to wear and have a very stable gait to them even with the tread starting to wear down from continuous use, i have even found them to be good for running in beng solid but light weight for standard military boots. Good Job Belleville.

      I want to give these boots good review I do. The 390 DES is one of the only boots available in a Narrow civilian side, which is a plus. The boots however have been nothing but issues. Let me start by saying they are comfortable, though stiff at first. My first pair had the sole fail by just pulling it out if the box. Luckily Tacticalgear got me a new pair no troubles, so kudos to them. My second pair has developed stitches failing on a couple of spots on the left boot in a matter of weeks. Now this is just being used in my civilian loading job, I would hate to have to be deployed with these boots given how quickly the stitching is failing the left boot. I have an email in to Belleville, but so far 2/2 boots have had quality control and durability issues.

      2/8/2014

      These boots hurt quite a bit for the first 2-3 days I worn them, due to the fact this is the first time in 3-4 years I've worn issued styled boots, but after the first week they became more comfortable than my nikes and bates I have been wearing. They do great in the field offering great support and durability. Also they clean up nicely. Most don't think about that but getting out of the field Friday and knowing you have Monday in ranks inspection, it's pretty nice knowing that these boots clean up and look good fast even after being covered in mud and god knows what else. Only down side is even though they are one of the only boots that come in narrow width, when I lace them up the eyelets still over lap each other due to my narrow feet.

      Its been a year since I got these. I wear them all day, everyday. My feet are spoiled now and even my running shoes make my feet hurt after a couple of hours. I wear 11 in street shoes - that's a 10 in Bellevilles 390. Traction is great, fit is great, they are holding up fantastic. Mine have been wet and dry numerous times, rough terrain, long road marches, and have had to sleep in them a time or two. Great boots. Get some, you will be happy you did.

      Regarding sizing, I had to go a full 1.5 sizes down (not just 1), and that even includes orthotics. The midsole required a bit of bending to break it to avoid vertical rubbing on my heel. Other than that, great boots. Been going on day hikes, breaking them (and me) in for a bigger hiking trip planned for later this summer.

      Went on 3 and 4 mile hikes straight out of the box. One of the most comfortable boots I've worn. Would give it 5 stars if I'd owned them longer and could judge how they will hold up. They appear to be very well made. Easy to lace. I wear 8 1/2 is most shoes but the 8 fit perfect. Excellent boot at a decent price.

      These boots are great. Very comfortable so far. Look very sturdy and strong. Shipping is super fast. I ordered them on a monday, got an email on Wednesday that they had been shipped, and recieved them on Friday. Like it says, order one size down from your normal shoe size and they will fit perfect. Definitely recommend!!!

      This is my 4th pair of the Belleville 390s. The ones that this pair replaced were well-used. I wore them through Ranger School, SFAS, RSLC, and other tactical courses before they finally broke beyond repair.

      It says, order 1 size smaller than your size. That is what I did, and they fit perfect. Also out of the box, no break in, just go. Best boots ever. Order to recive was 3 days.

      One pair of these boots survived all the seasons of Korea (in the mountains at Camp Casey) for two years straight, and are now tearing through the deserts of Fort Bliss. Great traction where ever I go, no hot spots when rucking, never had a blister with these things on, and they even hold up pretty well in the winter. Only thing I would improve is a bit more ankle support... All together a great boot though, 5 out of 5, no doubt worth every cent.

    • The most comfortable boots a lightfighter can get
      Reviewer: Snark

      These boots were recommended in 2003 by a 1SG who'd been in Iraq as the most durable and comfortable boots. After over 7 years of wearing these boots in both theaters of the GWoT I can definitely say that these are the most comfortable boots I've worn in over 20 years of service. The soles on these boots will outlast most of the competitors. I've replaced them only because when they get oil and grease on them they're unfit for garrison. Otherwise, I've worn out the soles on three pairs without having the sole separate from the boot or any kind of delamination or other problems associated with competitor's boots. As to comfort, these beat the heck out of the competition in helping to keep my feet cushioned against shock reducing heat transmission through the boot to the foot. About the only thing I'd wish for is a little more lateral stiffness to protect the ankle from torsion during airborne/Air Assault (particularly fast roping) operations. Another 'nice to have' would be reinforcements similar to those on the TR line of boots.

      I wear a 10 1/5 regular boot; always have since my feet stopped growing. Bellevile boots, while outstanding, have always had a size problem. I wear a 10 in this boot. If you are ordering on-line try a half size smaller than you normally wear. No break in required and I wear them year round. On my third pair and still loving them.

      Same as the 1SG said, right out of the box comfort, hell I'll do a pt test with a pair out of the box, on my 2nd pair as my first had seen a little too much and they are now my hunting boots. I recommend to all my joes and will recommend still further. SGT William James Abercrombie 17th POB (ABN) HSC

      Straight out of the box, most comfortable boot I've worn in 30 years military service. No break-in time at all. Durable.
