I haven't worn a pair of combat boots for over 40 years--thought I'd try it again with the new materials.
The uppers include fabric which creates the breathable feature for hot weather. They don't seem lightweight until you get them on your feet--for this much protection they are not cumbersome at all--nothing like the old skool combat boots--just wearing them around required a level of physical fitness!
The soles are stiff enough to get through any obstacle that might dare to get in your way which is what they're designed to do. Feet are protected, ankle support is good, lacing is efficient-easy on and off,
You'll want a good pair of heavy duty reinforced cotton socks that cover the length of the boot (spend some money on those, you'll be glad you did). Get a least a half size bigger than the biggest shoes you have to accomodate the socks and an orthotic/arch support if you need that too.
When you're geared up and ready to go, start walking and feel the power!! There's nothing that can get in your way to complete your mission...well...OK... you might have to divert from your path, briefly, to walk around the big stuff...

Bought these for my husband who is an automotive technician down in Southwest Florida. He works outside in the heat and previously wore tennis shoes in summer months. Not a great option for working during the rainy season. These boots keep his feet cool, hugs the pavement when it's wet, and have worn very well. Liked these soo much I bought a second pair and looking for a third.

Product came as described, however I should have paid more attention to a number of reviews that noted these boots tend to run big, and they do. I normally where a 15 in a Nike or Keen and they are just fine. I ordered a 15 M, and these boys were probably a full size larger when compared to the aforementioned. I am returning them, (a very simple online process with Sierra) and I have a 14.5 coming (would have gone to a 14 but none in stock) so I will see if the 1/2 size makes a difference. Best price on the internet and for those of us that wear a larger size, good selection.

I wasn't aware that these were defective boots, as they didn't come with soles and had several defective spots on them. Not a big deal, since I got them at such a huge discount ($53.60). Wearing them for a month at Ft Bragg and they are doing a good job so far.

I'm a female and was excited to see a small enough size for me to try these boots; I wear 8.5 women so tried the 6.5 in this boot. (7's are usually too big in mens sizes). The tongue was sewed up so high that I couldn't get my foot in? I have a high arch, but there was no getting it done. Cinderella's search continues.......
