A Vibram "Multisport" oil resistant TC4+ compound outsole has large, open lugs for traversing debris and provides excellent traction on irregular surfaces. With a fully gusseted tongue, debris also has a tough time finding its way inside the boot. Dri-Lex inner lining keeps the environment inside the boot comfortable and moisture free. A steel shank gives the ultimate support system, especially when you're fully loaded with gear.

    • 5 out of 5 I've been beating the tar out of a pair of these for close to 2 years now, and aside from looking 'well-worn', these boots are holding up like a champ. Far better than another popular numerical LE brand... Light as athletic shoes, comfy as slippers, hard as nails. Hold up to heat, sand, motorcycle wrecks, whatever I throw at them. If you want a great pair of boots and a bargain to boot (no pun intended), you can't miss with these Blackhawks.

    • 5 out of 5 i used these boots a lot and I can tell you they are comfortable and durable. They took the beating of the NYC streets winter/rain/snow performing like a goretex winter boot when its not really for that. Just brought another pair as after 4 years the boot developed a tear that could not be repaired still used it until heavy snow and rain finally made the boot to wet to wear. overall a great boot!!

    • 4 out of 5 Before I bought these boots, I was wearing the basic issue boots. So, the backs of my heels were used to smooth backing. These have some sort of felt backing, which my feet did not like. I promptly developed a rather severe blister. But, once that healed, I had no complaints at all about them. I fully intend to purchase replacements along the line when I go home and get some work done on the farm.

    • 4 out of 5 I ordered these boots for my son who is in the Army and so far he loves them. Our shipment was delayed at he post office and when i called customer service at military.com they where so helpful in resolving the problems. I would have given 5 stars but we will see in time how well the boots will hold up over time. So far my son is pleased.

    • 5 out of 5 I've been wearing these boots off and on since 2002. I had one pair (out of 4) that were bad and Black-hawk replaced them asking how they failed and then sent me a new pair. The sizing in spot on. I'll never buy another set of boots ever. I just wish they were a little more water proof, but you can't have everything.

    • 2 out of 5 I am currently on my second pair of these. The first pair wore out in less than four months. The soles of both boots began to crack. The stitching came undone and they stretch more than any boot I've ever owned. I wear a wide but in these I had to go to a regular width due to the amount that they stretch. Why am I on a second pair when the first failed so quickly? Because of the warrenty. Blackhawk replaced them free of charge. If it wasn't for the warrenty I would never have purchased another pair of these. They are comfortable right out of the box and no break in period is needed. The inserts that come with boots are always the weakest link. I added an after market insert and the boots were that much better for it. They are a tad on the warm side. Except for the top of the boot (over your toes, not the ankle part) which remains cool. Other Soldiers in my unit did have better luck with their boots but I know of three others that had to send them back to Blackhawk and get a new pair under warrenty. I went against my better judgement in purchasing a boot with a cemented sole. Welted soles provide better balance and tend to be more durable. I believe that this boot is over priced for what it is, just an average boot with a less than average life span.

    • 4 out of 5 I've had these boots for about 6 months now,and when i first put them on they were the best things ever........... Pros: Amazing outsole,durable and I haven't slipped once! Pretty warm, great for the weather we are having, only the occasional string pointing out of them. Holding together quite well so far. Lightweight, but still feel like boots, which is why I got these over the sneaker boots. Cons: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TWO SETS OF BOOTS! my feet hurt with what we do on a day to day. Gotta space it out. These feel amazing and light at first, but really hurt. Ankle support could be better, I've got bad ankles. The upper seems flimsy, like they could have done more with it,but that's simply nit picking. Not meant for speed laces,which is what I prefer. Overall,if you have a good sub-in set, great pair of boots, give them a try

    • 5 out of 5 Wasn't sure about the boot, didn't know of a lot of people wearing them and wondered whether they can withstand the terrain (OEF). I am simply amazed by them. They are without a doubt the most comfortable boots, their lightweight, and look good. Did not expect them to be this comfortable. We'll see how the endure. If they last, i won't buy another boot again. I highly recommend it.

    • 5 out of 5 I am a harsh critic, so a 5 star rating is very rare, but these boots deserve it. I only hope they are able to withstand punishment, that is yet to be tested. Out of the box they fit true to size, and they are incredibly comfortable. 0 break in time. I am on my feet over 14 hours a day, and these boots have made it a pleasure. They feel great, they are quiet, and they look good. If you are on the fence about getting these, get off. Buy them, I'm going to order some more for myself.

    • 5 out of 5 I am not in the service yet, I am 16. I purchased a pair of these about 6 months ago, they are litterally the most comfortable boots out there. I put them through hell and the only bad thing I can say about them is that they ripped too easy for me. Pro's: Superior comfort, excellent water-proof, very breathable, easy on-off. Con's: Sole wore down fast, rips easy, not enough life time of the boots. I wore the sole flat in about 5-5 1/2 months, but I wore them daily as my work boots. Sadly they didn't have a steel - composite toe; I smashed the hell out of my toes.
