  • 4 out of 5 These are my first pair of Rapid Response boots and overall they are very good. Appear to be well built & sturdy. They are comfortable for a boot. However, they are a little stiffer than I expected. Will take a little while to break in. Also, the tounge is very padded, much thicker than I expected. The boots do run slightly large, I suggest buying a 1/2 size smaller than you normally wear.

  • In love!!!

  • 5 out of 5 These are by far the very best boots I have ever owned hands down. They are like wearing 8 inch sneakers. I will be buying another pair soon. The pair I have now, I wear about 16 hours a day for pretty much 6 months now. I want a new pair due to the fact I would like to wear a soft toe when not working. One heck of a job Converse!

  • Great boots

  • 5 out of 5 These are my third pair, first two I got while stationed in Kuwait/Iraq. Now I use them for everything from garden work, my job and outdoors pursuits such as hunting and fishing here in the Rockies. Very comfortable, rugged, easy on the feet. When these wear out, I'll be getting another 'cause they just don't come any better.

  • Great comfort

  • 5 out of 5 I have had these boots for 2 years. I primarily wear them in the desert and for hunting. They fit well and have held up really well. My 2 sons and son in law (LE and former military) liked them so much that they all have them now.

  • 5 out of 5 I have tried Danner, Original Swat, Matterhorn, Tactical Research, Harley Davidson, Doc Martens and Bates. All have been very good boots, but these Converse are quite amazing. I have flat feet and I am on concrete 10 hours a day. These boots make me feel like running and jumping when I walk through the plant. They are very light and "springy". I am going to order another pair in black for hiking this winter. They do seem to run a little wide because I usually wear a EE but I am wearing a D in these. And by the way, the zippers work well and seem to be of very good quality.

  • Comfortable Boot

  • 5 out of 5 Very comfortable, especially for standing around on concrete for several hours. I have a narrow foot but the Medium fits fine. I live in a hot climate and this boot isn't any hotter than my Ropers. Not very stealthy though as this boot makes a lot of noise when I walk and the sole easily picks up twigs and rocks. Overall, I'm satisfied.

  • Good but they run wide

  • 3 out of 5 I really like these boots. Nice & tall, soft sticky soles, chunky zipper, good look, ... . My only, and fairly large complaint, is that they run quite wide. I normally wear a medium, but these mediums are so wide I have to put a second insole in for them to fit ok.

  • 5 out of 5 This my 2nd pair and when the time comes I will buy them again. I wear these boots every day for work doing construction. I even wear them around the house on weekends. They are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned, Combine sneakers and boots use great material and this is what you have.

  • Great boots!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5 I didn't buy from this site, but do own the boots!!! I work Fire/EMS around my town and can't say enough about these boots! I have had them ankle deep in water with no water in the boot itself!!! Worn them during ice and snow with no slips or problem with traction!!! They are 3 years old and feel great and after a quick shine still look good!!! I have turned several friends to these boots and am buying a pair now for my Army uniform!!!!

  • Pure comfort right out of the box!!

  • 5 out of 5 Just received my boots today and I've got to tell you they're the most comfortable boots I've ever put on. I'm wearing them around the house this morning to try them out but I know I'm going to be very pleased with this purchase. I'll update later on after I've worn them for awhile but I'm going to order the black ones now. Great boots!!

  • Best for my purpose

  • 5 out of 5 This is my third pair of these excellent boots. I'm a landscaper and normally go through a pair of boots about every four mos. Each of the previous pairs of the Converse I've worn have lasted at least a year and a half. They are comfortable from day one and with the zipper you are in and out of them in no time. I like to wear shorts in the warm months. With the 8" design I get little or no debris inside my boots while using the trimmer/weed wacker. Other boots fill up with grass dirt and whatnot in no time and have to be taken many times throughout the day and emptied. Not these babies. And they are so light it is like wearing sneakers. Strongly recommended. Can't say enough good things.
