We were issued these entering the academy for the security force of a not-well-known federal bureau back in early 2020. We spent several weeks doing nothing but weapons training on the range, which meant standing relatively still for most of the work day. UNfortunately, the out-of-the-box experience with these boots was HORRIBLE!(later realized it was due to the in-soles) My heels hurt SO much after the 1st week, it was mind blowing. Enough of the rest of us complained about it that they made a temporary special exception to the training uniform, allowing us to wear our own desired fully enclosed footwear. When I replaced the in-soles with what I was using in my regular sneakers, it was a night/day difference! I then realized these boots potential & have been wearing them every work day since(today is 2023-6-04). They're only kinda worn out in certain places where some of the stitching is coming loose, but overall, they're holding together very well & are quite comfortable to me. The in-soles they came with were trash if you just stand in them. That "gel" "impact protection" pad was the thing that killed my heels. Whoever gave the 'OK' for that design to be used in these boots did NOT have them tested by someone standing on a concrete, or hard compacted dirt, grounded area for ~7 hours first. These may be great for hiking & other such things that keep you moving, but you GOTTA keep moving, or the gel pads will press into your heels cutting off blood flow or something that hurts after an hour. Even SITTING with them on was an issue because of this! ...& I HATE wearing footwear as loose as would be required to mitigate that pressure. If you're issued/or otherwise get these for something that involves a lot of 'being stationary,' AT LEAST replace the in-soles w/ something comfortable!
Very comfortable and durable. Much better than the junk they issue us.
COMFORT AND SAFETY
Comfort, high ankle support
The previous pair has lasted me at least a year without breaking
They are very comfortable and very light
