  • 1 out of 5 I bought this boot because of the glowing reviews I read here. However, the boot I received did not live up to those reviews. These boots are well made and sturdy, but that's where the benefits end. I don't have a wide foot, but, for the normal width, they were too wide for me. I think this is where my problem started. I wore this boot a couple of hours a day to break them in. On a flat solid surface like cement or pavement, they worked well. When I deployed and wore them in a rocky environment, they failed miserably. Due to the width being too wide for me, my foot moved around too much and caused me to get significant blisters. For garrison use, I might give 3 or 4 stars, but for field use, I would give less than 1 if that were an option.
    We're sorry to hear that this boot was not a good match for you! If you'd like to reach out to our Customer Service department, one of our knowledgeable associates would be happy to offer recommendations for products that better suit your needs. - TacticalGear.com

  • 5 out of 5 I love them! I didn't even need to break them in! I am disappointed that they only come in men's sizes and it is hard to get the size right for women without trying them on. But I got it right!

  • 5 out of 5 For an "Out of the Box" boot, I expected the standard break in period of a few weeks. Nope! No blisters or any discomfort of any kind, what-so-ever. These boots feel like my old pair of Carolinas I just pitched, with much better support. Lace up time has been cut by 90%. Love the YKK Zipper. My only gripe is a Zipper w/ metal teeth would be better. Awesome product at an Awesome price.

  • Really good boots

  • 4 out of 5 These are really good boots. Tough to break in at first, and the tr-1 sole, or whatever, isn't all that amazing. But boots are super durable and grippy. Shoe runs pretty big, so get a smaller size.

  • 5 out of 5 These are the most comfortable boots that I have owned to date. I have a bad heal and was sceptical when I purchased them but they were extremely comfortable and felt great on my feet The zipper could be a little better but all in all it is a great buy. I have been wearing them for the past month and the movement is very good

  • 5 out of 5 Have worn this boot for over a year, not one single flaw has occurred...and doesn't have normal boot odor. For some dumb reason I decided to order a Bates boot because of the looks. Ended up having to send back replacements due to shotty workmanship on all 3 of them! I reordered the Tactical and upon inspection the workmanship was outstanding with the exception of a defective lace that has not been replaced. I highly recommend this boot if you plan on putting it thru Hell!!

  • 5 out of 5 I looked at many brands including Bates and some higher priced boots, and for the quality, price and looks of the tactical research boots, I was impressed. After wearing them for a week now, I know I made the right choice.

  • 1 out of 5 Once on your foot, a very nice boot, but zipper didn't work well and they were next to impossible to get on the foot. Too bad, they felt great once on the foot. But, for a quick easy-on easy-boot they were a "no go" due to difficulty getting on foot and the wonky zipper. Too bad, sent it back.

  • Great Boot For the Price

  • 5 out of 5 Purchased these boots after a horrible trial with the Reebok Dauntless. I could not be happier with these boots. The comfort level was great straight from the box. No boot is perfect but the quality equals my more expensive Matterhorns. If your looking for a deal and quality I would recommend these. The environment of gravel, sand, salt, brush plus paved roads these boots match it all well. Great Boot.

  • 5 stars for the bad kid boots

  • 5 out of 5 The sergeants first reaction to his boots was 'where are my Altimas' I said, 'honey lets give these a shot.' Little did he know that I purchased these bad boys for the convenient zipper, since it is a regular task of mine to remove the sarg's boots at night. Not because he's lazy but because it takes extra leverage to get something suctioned to your foot off. Mission accomplished Tactical Research, you made my wifely duty a breeze. Now as for the bad kid title, come to find out these are standard issue for brat camp, and the serg didn't think he could don anything that wasn't a desert issue tanker boot. With some convincing we kept the boots, and I'm happy to say that so far so great! No foul odor, no frayed laces, no haggard holes. A+ on the zipper, all wives thank you.

  • 5 out of 5 These boots are much more than I expected for the price. I live in a hot, arid climate and the comfort of these boots is very good. I also have a width issue which I am totally satisfied with how you addressed that issue. I would recommend these to anyone, and again can't believe the quality and workmanship of these boots for the price.

  • 5 out of 5 WELL BUILT. The sizing is normal. The sole is well thought out so it will not burn out in one spot...... eg the back of the heel. It's a little stiff at the start , but all BELLEVILLES are. If boots feel soft and comfy at the start they most of the time get SLOPPY to fast and that sucks. So I like these boots for many reasons. Now I will put them to the test in Colorado this winter and when I am done I will write another review on them. stay tuned.

About Tactical Research

Tactical Research collage As one of the most trusted military specification footwear producers, Belleville has a long history putting boots on soldiers' feet since World War I. Originally, it manufactured men's and boys' shoes, but soon found its stride in combat boots. Many Belleville boots are made in the USA. However, some processes are not readily available here so Tactical Research was launched. This allows for the introduction of new construction techniques and a lower price tag for individuals sales. Built to the strictest quality standards, the line includes footwear that can be worn by military personnel, police officers and civilians that require superior foot protection.
Standard Width Belleville Width
B Narrow (N)
D Regular (R)
EE Wide (W)
EEEE Extra Wide (XW)

Belleville boots tend to run a full size large. We recommend ordering a full size down. This means if you wear a size 10, you should order a size 9. Women's boots run true to size.

Belleville does offer many boot styles that are specifically manufactured for women. If a particular style of boot is not available in women’s sizes, we recommend ordering the boot 2 full sizes smaller.
