Good Boots

By Barry F. on Jun 21, 2012

These aren't as good as my army issue boots I got in basic. They require some break in but not as much as other boots I've tried. These are made for people with high arches. I have flat feet so I had to change out the inserts with some custom ones. Overall, not too bad of a boot. Just make sure you get this version which is army compliant (no zipper).

Excellent Boots!

By Bethany from Washington DC on Mar 14, 2012

These boots are very comfortable. I'd give them a 9/10 compared to similar boots I've tried. They do feel like you've got a running shoe on as far as your feet go. Good ankle support and good padding. I'm using them here in Afghanistan for my deployment and they are a bit too insulated for hot weather. Other than that, these are great boots. They required virtually no break in time.

Solid boots

By Shelby White from Lincoln, NE on Dec 26, 2011

My coworker recommended these boots. They are as comfortable as the reviews say. I can tell they are good quality and not cheaply made. Solid boot all around. Speed lacing would have been nice but I can still get these on pretty fast. They ran slightly large.

Pros:
Comfortable
Good Quality
Cons:
Made in China

Gave my feet blisters

By Peter Scion from Boston on Dec 15, 2011

My left boot fit with no problem but after a couple of hours I started getting a hot spot on the heel of my left foot. It could be that my heel is sliding around slightly when I walk. It eventually turned into a blister so I don't know what other reviews are saying about no break in time. They do fit a little large. I ordered my running shoe size like it was recommended but I could have gone half a size down. The padding on the ankle part of the boot is very good and padded. Almost feels like my snowboarding boots in term of padding.

Pros:
Cons:
Blisters on my feet

Lightweight and Excellent Quality

By Thomas Ferrer from Phoenix, AZ on Aug 14, 2011

I ordered these online on Sat and they got here on Tues. These boots didn't require any break in. Normally when I get new boots, I soak them with water and walk around them for a couple of days. That usually speeds up the break in time. But with these, I tried them on when I go them and they were so comfortable I decided not to soak them. I've had these for a month with no problems. Plus they are light and give good protection for my ankles. I will be buying the black version of these boots for my EMT job.

Good but bulky

By Alfonso Rossi from Fort Collins, CO on July 12, 2011

I like these. Fairly lightweight but not really designed for rock climbing or super agile activities. They are kind of bulky but they are super comfortable like a sneaker.

Just a note on buying these. They sell 3 different versions. If you're buying these for the military, remember that army regs dont allow zipper boots so buy this model with the laces and composite toe.

Pros:
Lightweight
Comfortable
Cons:

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Converse Boot Review

By Lt Givenchy on Nov 2, 2011

I bought these for my deployment after hearing how great they were. My issue boots had just about had it. Talk about an upgrade. After a few days, these boots were just like wearing regular shoes. Buy them and you won't regret it!

Better Than My Hiking Shoes

By Patrick Mullens. on Oct 25, 2011

I bought these Converse boots based on advice from a coworker. I work as a national park ranger, so I do a lot of walking so I needed a quality pair of boots. I needed a boot with good ankle support because I'm constantly climbing up and down hills and rocky surfaces. These boots really fit the bill! They feel like my hiking shoes. Sometimes I forget I have them on. They are really that comfortable. The only thing is I should have known better and bought the waterproof version because the suede does get wet when I'm walking through several inches of water and does get through to my socks. I'm going to try treating them with a can of Scotch-Guard and see if that works.

Pros:

Cons:

I would recommend this item to a friend.
