Great boots so far

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on February 13, 2012
I've had these boots for about 4 months now and I must say that I'm impressed so far. My only complaint is that they don't wick moisture away from your feet very well, hence they tend to not smell so great after a 12 hour shift. I agree with the previous reviewer, they are not waterproof far past the third eyelet. I figure you get about 3.5"s of water before your feet start to get wet. It took me a few days to break these in, but they have been very comfortable. They also lack the durability problems that I've had with other brands. The soles aren't starting to fall off like other boots I've worn. For the price I paid for these boots I feel like it's a far better value than most other brands. These boots are almost as comfortable and far more durable than boots that cost 50% more. I'm pleased and fully recommend.
Pros: Lightweight, Durable, Waterproof
Cons: Not as comfortable as others I've worn...
Would recommend: Yes

Comfortable. But...

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on January 28, 2012
Okay. So I've had the Original Swat Side Zip and 9 Inch Tactical Waterproof. I couldn't find the 9 inch waterproof for the same price anymore so I figured I'd try these.

One thing I noticed, they aren't as high, about 7.5 inches at their little arch. The build doesn't seem quite as sturdy as the Original 9 Inch Waterproof, but We'll see (just got em yesterday). Also, the waterproofing only goes to about the third lace from the toe. Which gives about 2 inches or so of waterproofing, where the classic went all the way to the top almost.

The fit is a little looser than the Classic 9 as well, but nothing too bad.

They are comfortable from what I see, and not bad for the price, but I'd say if you need waterproofing higher than about 2-3 inches, go for Classic 9 Inch (or even the Warrior Wear Black Ops, wrote another review on that too).

Otherwise, I'd still say I like this and would still recommend it, just depends on your use. Original Swat has always been a favorite, and likely still will be.
Pros: Inexpensive, easier on and off.
Cons: Waterproof only to the third lace from toe...
Would recommend: Yes
