After 20 minutes boot molds to foot.
- Quality of manufacturing
- Need to cut out fabric from heel after first 20 miles
Boots fit tight at first, but conform to your foot fast. After the first twenty miles the fabric in the heel bunches up and needs to be cut out. This is a manufacturer flaw because this has happened on all three of the pairs that I own.
The insert is magical and has lasted several years with no need for replacement after about 200 miles a pair. I have one for each type of environment (desert, jungle, trail) and all seem to do their job well, especially the extremely broke in pair I have. The other two pairs I got for each deployment and those were broken in in the military.
These "combat" boots are twice as comfortable as civilian ones that I have tried and are relatively inexpensive compared to them as well. These boots work well in all conditions except underwater or when soaked, but the plus side is they dry out fast.
