Army regs don't allow for zipper boots for CONUS use to my knowledge. Army troops that are deployed overseas can wear these.
Really like a lot the boots. Good comfortable and look nice. I recommend these to my friends buy them.
I have no complaints about these boots. The zipper makes it real easy to get on and off compared to my lace boots. Fast shipping. Thanks militarybootsdirect!
These boots have been excellent from the start. I work construction and the comp toe comes in handy at times. I have another pair in green that I switch out with these tan ones. They really hold up well. I've have them over one years and they have worn very slightly. Super comfortable. If they keep holding up like this, I'll get five years out of them. Buy em!
The guy at the base exchange recommended these to me. They are really comfortable and have excellent padding withoug being restrictive. I wear them all day long walking on concrete and I can feel the shock absorbtion on my heel with every step. Great boots!
These boots are some of the most comfortable I've worn. I've had wolverines, rockys, and thoroughgoods and these are really the most comfortable out of all of them. I use them for work and have not had a problem with them. The first day I put them on, they were great. No breakin or nothin. I love the tread pattern. I bought a second pair to rotate them in since I wear these every day. I'm thinkin about buying a few more in case they stop makin them.
I use these for paintball. This is my first pair of zipper boots and I really like them. I was reluctant to buy these because of the zipper breaking but my friends all have these and they all say great things about them. The zipper is pretty heavy duty so I don't think it will be a problem.
This is one of the most comfortable boots I've worn in my 15 year Air Force career. They are comfortable right out of the box and are great quality. Just make sure you get the one you are looking for. I wanted one with the side zipper and ordered the lace up kind. Note there are several models of the same sage green Rapid Response so just make sure you get the one you want.
This is my third pair of these and I hope they don't stop making them I get about 2-3 years out of them before they start getting dirty. So I make those my camping boots or boots I do yard work in. They're just as comfortable but the suede does get dirty compared to the slick black combat boots everyone used to wear.
I love the zipper. It makes getting these on and off super easy. Now I dont have to the laces around 3-4 sets of eyelets to take these off. It's a simple peel the velcro strap back and unzip. Your feet come right out. The zipper is super sturdy as well. It's not one of these small zippers on your jeans. It's a heavy duty nylon zipper with large teeth. I was a little worried about that when I tried on my first pair but like I said, I'm on my thirs pair and have never had a problem with the zipper.
Comfort wise, I give these a 5/5. I'm used to the old style of traditional combat boot with the rubber sole nailed on to the upper part of the boot. Well let me tell you that combat boots have come a long way. The converse boots are very supportive without being restrictive when you need to run or bend down. I'm just using the factory insoles that come with the boot and they have been great. No foot problems or fatigue. I'm a believer in these. Get a pair!
Realy comfortable boots, I was wearing these for logging in Canada. They really do feel like you have a pair of tennis shoes on. Sometimes I forget that when I have them on. They do get dirty in wet, muddy environments so I should have bought the black ones that have the smooth leather. These boots have lasted pretty long and are now my favorites. Had them for four months and still going strong.
i like these boots so far. these are my first pair of converse boots. comfortable but its noly been a week. if there good, i will buy another pair.
I'm in the Air Force and these are my second pair of these boots. The first pair I bought was in desert tan but I had to buy the green ones go go with ABUs. These are really well made boots. Really cushiony and bouncy and keeps my feet cool in Afghanistan. They're pretty lightweight which does make a difference when you've got 40lbs of gear on your back. What I like the most about these boots is the zipper along with the laces. So i just lace up the boots to the tension I like, then just double tie them so they don't come untied, then I just use the zipper to get these on. Makes getting them on quick, like 5 seconds quick. You really can't go wrong with these boots. Not too expensive and really comfortable. Once you try them, you'll be a believer like me.
I love these boots here in Afghanistan but the zipper is against Army regs. I can still get away with these here so I'm enjoyin them until I have to go back stateside.
These Converse boots are built really well. The Army guys call these the "moon boots" because they do look like it. They must just be jealous because they cant wear them. I'm a woman and ordered two sizes smaller than my running shoe and they fit great. Very comfortable and light.
These boots are lightweight and comfortable. I would have given them 5 stars but they dont keep my feet warm in the winter.
I've owned these for two years and wear them everyday on the job site. I grate concrete so they do get abused. The treads have worn down some but suprisingly they have held up great. I'm very satisfied with these especially for the price. I had to get the compostite toe version since there are all kinds of falling hazards around and these boots have saved my toes more than a couple of times. Great boots. I'll be buying another pair once these wear out.
I love these boots but they are pricey. The composite toe is much lighter than other steel toe boots. These also run true to size. I ordered the same size as my running shoe.
After almost twenty years in the Army, these are most comfortable boots i've ever worn. They beat custom boots and require no break in. Incredible that shoe technology has come this far.
This is one of the best hot weather boots I've ever worn. I use these for hiking and go anywhere from 5-10 miles over mountains, forest, and dirt fire roads with no problems. I was contemplating getting the non composite toed version but there was such a small weight difference I decided to go with the compostite toe and have had no problems. These boots are lightwieigh and have lasted over a year. They're also cool so my feet dont sweat. When my friends have to stop by noon to let their blisters and sweaty feet air out, I'm laughing. The sizing was right on with my running shoe. What a fantastic product. They're not made here but they seem to be really good quality. These are overall one of the best hot weather safety boots i've ever worn.
Excellent boots. I have a pair of green and tan. The zipper is a lifesaver!
I use these on the flight line as an aircraft mechanic. Within 6 months, one of the seams behind the safety toe came apart. I had to send them in for a warranty replacement. Luckily it was pretty easy to get a new pair. These are comfortable but not really the best quality.
I wear these everyday and love them. The zipper is a must have. No more tying laces ever again.
I have flat feet so all of my boots need to be able to take custom insoles. I tried these on at the store and they were very comfortable with my insoles. I was impressed with the amount of padding on the sides. They really protect your ankles. The comp toe is very protective as I've had some items fall on my feet before at work with no problems. These really do feel like sneakers like people say. I wear these for 10 hours every day and they have held up great.
