Fantastic boots for the cost!

by WhiplashOneSix, from United States, IL Written on October 27, 2014
These boots are everything you need in a tactical zip up boot. You only have to tie the laces once and from then on the zip up feature is sufficient to don and doff. Vibram soles have insanely sticky grip, and even keep traction on slick tile. Waterproofing is solid, and the boot is able to stay dry when submerged in a shallow puddle. Only a few complaints, the boots do come a little stiff, and the insoles are a bit too thick. Good news is the boots will loosen up with use and if you run them under some hot water.
Plus, you can swap out the thick foam insoles for ones that are lower profile. All in all, an excellent buy. I initially got them in size 8 which was a bit small, so I went up to size 9 and they fit perfect. As point of reference, I wear 9.5 in athletic running shoes....

Great boots!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, KY Written on July 30, 2012
These are great! comfortable right out of the box, stiff, but comfortable. They will be fantastic when they break in. These are well made, and the zipper makes for an easy on and off. The only reason i gave it 4-5 on features is that i would have preferred the gusset on the tongue go all the way to the top, but its not that big of a deal. Definitely recommend these! Blackhawk pretty much always makes great stuff!
Pros: Comfortable, waterproof, well made
Cons: tounge isnt gusseted all the way to the top...
Would recommend: Yes

Buy a pair!

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 22, 2011
Very durable, and extremely silent!Velcro straps hold the zippers in place for noise discipline. I snuck up to my buddy behind him without him noticing, it's amazing. I wear these everyday in the city when I go to work, and it looks like any other pair of black shoes. It is the best pair of shoes that I have worn in my entire life because of the extreme comfort, and can stand on my feet for long hours without pain. This reminds me of a smaller version of the Black Ops boot. Buy a pair!
Pros: Durable, very silent
Cons: None...

Great pair of boots

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, PA Written on June 27, 2008
I had spent quite a bit of time looking for a replacement pair of boots for my old Magnum ER1's which are now discontinued and these definitely fit the bill. In fact, every shortfall of the Magnums (which were a great boot in their own right) seems to be addressed by Blackhawk. The tongue and zip flap are made of nylon instead of leather, which cracked on my old boots, compromising the waterproofing. The zipper has large, wide teeth, which makes the action smooth and feels much more durable. The Magnums had a standard zipper with thin teeth that wound up getting jammed after a soaking in the rainforest (and gave me a reason to look for a new boot.) The open lugs do look like they'd handle better over loose gravel and muck and be easier to clean, but I have yet to test this. The rubberized toe is a great idea, covering precisely the area that would always get scuffed while traversing rough terrain. Finally, the boot is darn comfortable out of the box. The insole is great, and the only thing that needs some breaking in is the area around the ankles. The only fault that I could find is the leather on the right boot on the toe has a thinner strip near the laces, which creates a visible wrinkle, but that area always gets worn over time anyway. Overall this is a solid boot and has exceeded all of my expectations.
Pros: well engineered for durability, waterproof, side zip
Cons: slight irregularity in new leather...
