Great Boot for Light Hiking

by Jeff K, from United States, AZ Written on January 12, 2015
I read the reviews for this boot on the 5.11 website when they first came out. Didn't need boots at that time, but since then, I have been looking for a light hiker that can take some abuse and not cost a lot. These are that boot. If they have your size, grab them before they are gone. Received my pair, went out on a 4 mile hike over fairly flat terrain. Worked very well, no break-in necessary. Went out this last weekend on a combination 6-mile hike/geocaching jaunt over mixed terrain and 1000 foot elevation change. No problems. Even going downhill, my toes never touched the tips of the boot, and the padded tongue kept the lacing from embedding in my upper instep. The heel counter works great-kept me from twisting my ankle a couple of times. Nothing punctured or penetrated the sole, and the pattern of the sole is earth-friendly. Shoes are true-to-size (duty boot or dress shoe sizing). Wouldn't hesitate on recommending these to anyone needing a mid-trainer or light hiker....

5.11 Tactical Trainers - Great Boots

by Rescue89BOb, from United States, NC Written on January 12, 2015
I have purchased three pairs (three colors) of these boots. I fine them comfortable and durable. 5.11 has discontinued what I consider the best shoe product of this type ever. I have a pair of the current replacements and they are not as comfortable or supporting as the Tactical Trainers....
Pros:
  • Comfortable and looks good
  • broken in right out of the box
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Lightweight low boots and very comfortable

by Jeepman, from United States, CA Written on December 26, 2014
These are really good low boots for shooting that breath well due to the mesh upper. I have hot feet, and in leather or poorly ventilated boots I suffer. The styling on these is nice without being "tactical cool" and they seem like they would be comfortable on a long hike or club if necessary. Not sure about longevity, lightweight boots usually give something up in reliability long term, but these seem fairly well made. These are comparable to Merrils or other brands like Solomon, at a lower price. I recommend these for someone on the job who is trying to avoid looking like a tactical idiot. If the SHTF I'd put these in my backpack as a back up pair of footwear cause their so light...and the Anthricite is a really nice grey with black trim....

You cannot go wrong with this great deal.

by Ed in Pa., from United States, PA Written on December 16, 2014
I had been looking to buy a pair of these 511 Tactical Trainers. Optics Planet had the best price hands down. I ordered a pair and as soon I opened the box and inspected the quality of these hikers, I ordered 2 more pair. Great service from Optics Planet also. From the product description to the front door delivery, to the price, Optics Planet is numero uno....

Love and great price

by Meghan, from United States, CA Written on December 13, 2014
Will be ordering another pair. Durable. Allows room for orthotics if you need them. Great for everyday use. Does run small so order down a size they provide size chart. Best price around and great customer service....

Not true to size

by Hank, from United States, MN Written on December 12, 2014
I have since ordered these from another company in a 1/2 size up and feel confident about the quality of the shoe. I've only worn them for a week, but there don't seem to be any weak points, the soles are firm & stiff which is what I need. The boot aspect (higher ankle) provides a little more stability than a standard low-cut shoe, but not a ton more. So far they have proven waterproof in snow, slush and light rain. I have not stood in puddles nor heavy downpour yet.
I gave this product 4 stars because I don't believe they are true to fit. An 8.5 Wide should be plenty big enough for my foot (which actually measures Mens 8 in length but is quite wide) but no matter how I tied them, my big toe clearly hit the end of the shoe. I ordered 9s from a different website and they are a more appropriate length (although now a little too wide, go figure). My only other critique is that the laces are way too long. Even double-knotted they drag on the ground and I plan to replace them....

I would have never tried these boots at full price, sorry for that kinda money i will buy keens, that said at the low discounted price I paid they are great and I find myself wearing them more then the keens I bought at the same time. Very comfortable and i have had sure footing everywhere I have went, including lots of woods walking. as soon as I got the first pair i ordered two more for me and one pair for the wife. AWESOME and no reason not to try at this price....
Pros:

  • Made in China

Awesome shoes!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on November 27, 2013
This is my second pair of these shoes. I wore the first pair for two years before my dog chewed them up. There was no visible wear / tear prior to that. Lightweight, comfortable, and rugged. While they don't hold up to pit bull attack, they are a fantastic shoe. Highly recommended....
