I put these boots on and went to work. The first week of use was spent on the firearms range with a lot of standing and walking. I did not experience any foot discomfort. These boots feel like a pair of running shoes. They are by far the most comfortable and light weight boots I have used for work in years. I would highly recommend these boots.

Excellent boots, lightweight, breathable and comfortable. Great look to the boots, can't wait for them to come out in black to make my next purchase. Feels like I'm wearing sneakers. Thanks First Tactical.

I've had these boots for around 3 months now and I have to say they are very athletic compared to most tactical/outdoor boots out there, at least of the varying styles that I have tried, while at the same time very comfortable after 1-2 days of constantly wearing them everywhere. They have decent support, but perhaps due to the athletic/running shoe style build, I feel more stress on my calves instead of my thighs which is usually the case when I wore my other, heavier, more supportive boots. They are very airy, but I've also had some success with wearing them in colder weather by pairing them with merino wool socks. In my case I had to wear those thick merino socks anyway because these boots are very roomy - the lack of a Gore-Tex liner, which is present in all my other boots, might be the reason. These boots fit slightly large, if you have wide feet you I'd say you can just order your usual size. However, the easy peasy lacing system helps in that regard somewhat. I've also worn them in the rain a few times and they do have a bit of water resistance, but whatever water which got in quickly evaporated due to their excellent breathability. My only nitpicks would be that the sole is slippery on wet marble floors (well, this is basically a universal thing), and that the stock laces are very thin. I wear them all the time now, although I'd probably still prefer my much heavier leather boots if I know I am going to face muddy terrain with a heavy backpack.

Best fitting, most comfortable boot I've worn. Out of the box comfort!

This is a game changer for the brand. First day out of the box was a full range day and I had zero break in issues. Thoughtful design features. I would rank these as a great value for the price and based on comparable versions I would expect to pay $50-$80 more for the same boot made by anyone else. I have worn the UA Valsetz in the same price range and these are twice the boot as the UA. Looking forward to a black version and I would buy them the first day available.
