      Reviewer: Dave

      12/30/2014

      These boots look good and are super comfortable. I like the sage green color. This is my third pair. The only issues I've had are with some of the stitching. There is a lot of stitching. I've had the seams separate. But, I'm rough on these boots. They were advertised on clearance. I hate the boot is being dropped. The delivery was quick. Thanks.

      Have worn these boots for a year now and have to say they fit me like a glove. Spray them with Rustoleum Boot water repellent and your good to go in any weather. Only reason I didn't rate 5 star is because of stitching. The Quality Control folks in China need to get on top of this, please! Have had to take to shoe repair and get re-stitched in several places.

      I liked the style and fit of these boots, but after only a couple of weeks walking the casino floor in them they are coming apart. The fabric is tearing away fro the leather on the lower section right foot. Not happy at all, unfortunate because the boot has great potential.

      We're sad to hear the boots didn't work out for you. If you let our customer service team know, they will be able to help you with a return and offer any additional assistance you might need.

    • 3.5 years later and still kicking!
      Reviewer: cyclegi

      5/27/2014

      So this is a follow up review as I get ready to buy a new pair of boots- after 3 years of ranges, schools, motorcycles rides and miles of marching, these boots are less than garrison pretty, but still kicking, even with my lopsided stride! The laces have always been too short, and the eyelets have shaved the outer layers, but the outer construction is solid. The only issue is the inner liner came/tore loose in the toe box- but its only noticeable when I wear thin socks. I'm going to try a different style for my next pair, but not for any fault of these work horse performers!

      Reviewer: John

      4/28/2014

      Wear these boots religiously. They are light, rugged, look great, and are a superior buy for the money. Not sure why people are complaining about the stiffness and difficulty getting into them. Didn't even have to wear them in the shower and walk them dry. Put them on right out of the box and the stiffness was gone by the end of the first wearing. Great boot and will order more just to have them ready.

      Reviewer: Kevin

      3/7/2014

      I'm currently deployed. I never cared much for a commercial boot while in uniform. I noticed a contractor who was a crew chief with our helicopters was wearing them, they got my attention and I asked about them. He highly recommended them. I liked the look so I gave it a shot and ordered them. They arrived to me in Afghanistan in under 3 weeks which was excellent. I really like them, they're comfortable, light weight and better constructed then our standard issue. I will order another pair once it's time to head home. Online purchase was fast n easy, the entire process was exactly what I expect, nothing but the best. The product is great, the service regarding shipping and processing, EXCELLENT..I'll be placing my next order soon. Thanks guys..

      I love this boot. I work in landscape and outdoor living space construction. My feet used to kill me. These boots stopped that. Working in rough construction sites then on to concrete blocks and pavers these boots are light and supporting. They give the support of a boot but wear like sneakers. This is my second pair. My first pair started separating at the seams but I still wear them. Read all the reviews. Most of the comments are spot on.

      Reviewer: Michael

      8/12/2013

      I've worked in construction for many years and always had sturdy and reliable boots. At 58 years old I didn't believe there was a need for a heavy boot. I've worn out dozens of pairs of hiking boots, sneakers and casual shoes and only increased damage to previously injured feet, knees and hips. I wear these boots for everything. The construction and strength lends stability and comfort on the street, trail and are great for working out.

      Reviewer: Bing

      8/9/2013

      I'm a field mp in the guard, I bought a pair of these boots after my first deployment, and I wish I had them on my first one. Soon after I got redeployed, within 3 months being home, went back to Iraq and was constantly walking running and jumping in them... they were a little warm... no wear in time needed...and my feet never hurt when I got my down time to take them off... the only negative is they were warm.. the seams and sole fell apart some what in places, super glued them back at times, had to make due...but I had them for 3 years... gonna buy 2 more pair today... i cant see myself buying any others accept these...they have holes in the sides of them now and they are STILL comfortable, my dad wears them around the house with ankle socks...they are just really comfortable, but you do need to know your feet and what best fits them...but i wore them over seas almost 20 hours a day on patrols outside the wire....

      7/26/2013

      just ordered my 4th pair in 6 years and i wear almost nothing else, i keep one for good and the rest for field use and i don't mean just walking the dog. I recently gave my oldest pair (still ok after hundreds of miles) to a homeless guy who mistook them for high dollar almost new hiking boots. I went on home in my socks, truly blessed, knowing i still had a new pair at home

      These boots are the worst and cheapest made boots I've ever owned,in 1 day they ripped near the ankle. I have a pair of corcorans that I've owned for 2 years and beat up tremendously and they are still going strong. I would not recommend these boots to anyone.

      Reviewer: ChikenHawk

      5/16/2013

      I have had these boots for 3 years now. I can not regard them higher. By far the best boots I've ever owned. 0 break in time. I wore them fresh out of the box on a 15 hour day and my feet where great when I was done. I am also very tough on my boots. I wear them every day 15+ hours a day and camping and hiking in the Florida swamps. Mud dirt sand rock gravel concrete asphalt you name it these boots have done it. Heck they where even the victim of my dog and they are still great. Buying a new pair today. Don't hesitate on these boots.

      Reviewer: Riley

      4/21/2012

      I am currently in Afghanistan and was in need of a new pair of boots. After reading a good number of review I decided to go with the Kiowas because overall they had a really good rating. When I received my boots I found out that they run big (I wear a 10 and these fit like 11) and were fairly stiff. After wearing these boots for about 2 months in Afghanistan they completely broke down. The sides busted out and virtually all of the stitching gave way. I definitely wont be buying these again

      Reviewer: Antrim

      2/11/2012

      Great boots. Won't be dissapointed. No break in period. On par in comfort with the Blackhawk Light Assault boot. Can run in these boots. Laces are long, but you can still tuck. Thick laces, won't break. Comfortable heal to forefoot weight exchange. Suppotive and snug with regular size, while still keeping ample room in the toe box for proper flection of the toes.

    • Sneakers outlasted them
      Reviewer: Jim

      1/3/2012

      I thought I found my ideal boots I but they only lasted six months before the stitching gave out. I could see if I worked in a rock quarry and they were abused but these were used for walking dogs on dirt roads and fields, LOL. These replaced a pair of Rebox sneakers that lasted three years doing the same thing. I thought I was buying a good brand as in Dover,DE near the air base I see the men and women all wearing Belleville. Hard to believe a regular sneaker outlasted a military boot ...

      I for many years wore issued boots that sucked. Hard sole, killed your feet. I purchased 2 pair of these prior to going to Afghanistan and the day that I put these on fell in love. They are like wearing a rugged, durable, "house slipper"! It has taken 4 years of daily wear and tear to finally break down the stitching on 1 of the shoes. I have recommended these to many of my brothers in arms and in the civilian competitive shooting community! Everyone loves them! THANK YOU TACTICAL RESEARCH FOR A SUPERB BOOT!

      I work 12 hour shifts, half of that is on my feet, standing on black top. These boots really helped with fatigue and little pains that come with age. I have had them for just over a year, they are now starting to wear out. Ordering my new pair today. I had minimal break in, no irritation anywhere (half the time I wear ankle socks), they do tend to be warm, but I'm in 100 degree, 100% humidity, standing on black top, flip flops aren't very cool either. Would recommend to anybody. hope this helps.

      I got these boots just prior to deploying to Iraq from an Army surplus store. I have been wearing them for 2 months now and the soles are starting to peel apart. The manufacture warranty is for a year, so will hopefully be able to return them as I do not see it as regular wear and tear. The fit is very comfortable, but almost seems as if your heel is lower than the ball of your foot. Definitely fits different than any other boot I have worn. I usually alternate boots every other day, so a different fit is sometimes nice.

    • Slightly warm, but good so far
      Reviewer: Chair Force

      6/19/2011

      Overall - Good boot, but doesn't breathe very well. I just bought a pair of the Kiowa's (sage green) because they looked comfortable and the reviews seemed fairly positive. My overall opinion so far is that it is a good boot. I agree with some other comments that they are warmer than average boots. The photos don't show it, but the interior is lined with a kind of gortex. This makes the boot pretty toasty on a summer day like today. Even though the exterior photos show areas of nylon canvas (which appear breathable) the interior cloth lining prevents easy air flow. Some others have commented that there was no break in period. Granted, they are not like the old style all-leather marching boot, but there is still some break in. The leather is stiff and there are some hot spots on my ankle and heel. I'm sure it will go away in a few days, though. So far, I think I've made a good investment. Some have commented about the seams coming apart. The stitching looks pretty solid, but I'll have to give it a few months to determine how well they hold up. I wear a 10.5 and the fit is pretty good. One last note, the photos make the top edge of the boot appear as though it's made from padded vinyl. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it NOT - it's actually the same nylon canvas that is on the side of the boot. Whew!

    • Getting a new pair
      Reviewer: Mickey

      6/16/2011

      Have had these for 7 months, they are very light and comfortable, A little warm though. At about the 7 month mark the seems on sides started coming undone. I walk in crushed gravel daily, maybe that cut the threads, maybe it didnt, I dont know. If you do get a pair, go ahead and buy you some laces, the included laces are fat and short. I am buying a second pair to replace the first, I think they are worth the money. My son had a pair when he went to Air Born School, they wouldn't let him wear them.

      Reviewer: SWAT Operator

      2/13/2011

      These boots were recommended by a friend. I can't say enough good things about these boots. Right from day one the boots were extremely comfortable. They did not require a break in period. I wear them 4 days a week at work for 12 hour shifts, sometimes even longer. The quality is second to none. I have had other name brand boots, Oakley, 5.11, Magnum and these are far superior to any of these. I will definitely buy another pair of these boots and would highly recommend them.

    • Look but Cheaply made
      Reviewer: Griz

      1/28/2011

      I served in the Army not too long ago and would not allow my team to wear these boots they may look nice but are made for cooler climates. Do not wear these boots in hot weather. I ordered a pair and just for the heck of it they wore out in 6 months time. Cheaply made, many flaws including: seams coming apart, tread wearing faster than any other boot i have worn in my entire life, no ventilation as if made for cold weather and when i tried re-lacing them fresh out of the box the cheap laces they provided both snapped the ends off because the holes were too small for the laces they provided! and of course they are made in China. Sorry guys and gals look further than the looks.

      Reviewer: Cyclegi

      12/13/2010

      I have been wearing the same issue boots since 2006 when they first fielded the new uniforms. I have low arches so I use inserts and have to be careful with my footwear. Needless to say these boots took a little getting used to- how tight i wear them and whether I used the stock insert and which socks to wear, but now they are great! They are lighter than my issue "jungle style" boots, and look a 1000 times better! my only complaint is with the laces- I'm old school and have always tucked them inside the tops of my boots, these are too short and tend to work their way out. Overall, a fantastic first online footwear experience and choice all the way around!

      The boot felt a little snug out of the box (which I should have expected). With a small amount of wear it fits just right. Very comfortable to wear for long periods of time, as well as walk in. Doesn't hurt my feet at all but could be a little lighter. Overall a good boot and I'm sure I'll grow to like it more over time. Well worth the price.

      Have had these boots since may and I would have to say that I have never worn a more comfortable tac-combat boot, my feet have never been happier. Any ops in mountainous terrain, sandy, and rocky, these boots can handle what you can throw at them, yes they do hold the heat a bit, but that is a minor issue for me. The only prob I have with these boots, and it goes for ANY suede boot, they don't like water! Hehe, I haven't put these to a long term abuse test yet, I will get back to you when I do.

      Good Support and Design for the most part, they are a warm boot probably not the best for hot weather since there is no ventilation there is one major flaw in the laces provided, after receiving a pair to test out for my unit trying to relace or even loosen the laces is almost impossible without snapping both laces the plastic end caps pop right off and ended up replacing with smaller store bought laces, so prepare to buy smaller laces upon receiving boots.
